In brief: Possible reasons

You need adequate fluid volume and oxygen to get to your brain at all times.
When you stand up, if you are dehydrated, or if you might be anemic, you could feel lightheaded or dizzy. There are also possible contributions from you vestibular system that could cause this. See your pcp to discuss possible reasons, check your blood pressure and blood count, possibly other tests.
