Taking a break from coffee

For many people, a cup of coffee is a part of their morning routine, helping them to wake up and feel ready for the day.Caffeine is a stimulant that affects your nervous system, meaning it speeds up the messages travelling between the brain and the body, making you move and think faster for a period of time. Whilst this can be helpful when getting up in the morning, a heavy reliance on caffeine can have negative effects such as faster breathing and heart rate, headaches and irritability.Taking a break from coffee helps you physically and fiscally in a few ways:
  • Reduces blood pressure, risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiac arrest.
  • More restful sleep.
  • Better mood - less anxiety.
  • Saves money.
  • Reduces waste.
If you are experiencing the more negative effects of drinking coffee, it is in your best interest to consume it in moderation. Gradually cutting back on the amount you drink a day or taking a break all together can significantly improve your day to day life.
