Sweet Caffeine!

More Energy Project day #6

I’m at work and I started with a good strong cup of coffee. I have to make advantage of this caffeine trip that usually lasts for a couple of hours.

According to the article on ZenHabits caffeine should be used wisely because too much caffeine can have the opposite effect and will drain your body for energy.

A rule of thumb: Avoid caffeine eight hours before bedtime.

Caffeine stays in your body for about eight hours. Usually you only feel the effect for a couple of hours, but if you have caffeine in you body at bedtime, then it will disturb your sleep and that’s not good for your energy.

I try to get to bed about 22.00 (10 pm) but I usually don’t sleep before 23.00 (11 pm). That means I should not drink coffee after 14.00 (2 pm).

Coffee tastes good and it really gives me a kick, but it would be great if I could have this kick without drugging myself with caffeine. My experience is that the less coffee I drink the higher the kick is when I take a cup of coffee.

How much coffee do you drink?

Btw I found this great article about how caffeine works.
