More Water. Less Coffee.



It's Monday which means were slowly loosening our grip on the weekend and welcoming our work week with open arms or at least we're trying! In our attempt to be productive and snap into work reality, we may be hitting the sauce pretty hard. The caffeinated sauce, better known as coffee. 

How do you take yours? Do you drop a few sugar cubes with some milk or creamer? Do you roll up to Starbucks while you're putting on your make up and order a venti white chocolate mocha, hold the whip, with an extra shot of espresso? Or do you do yourself a solid and drink it black? 

Coffee is a crutch to say the least but the things we are putting in our day changing elixir, can really add up and create highs and lows in our day. 


First, drinking too much coffee can actually increase your fatigue. We suggest keeping your intake under 4 cups per day.  When we say cup, we mean the actual measurement, not the giant cup you got on your family vacation to Disney World. 

Secondly, drinking sugary beverages will certainly wake you up, but they will also make you crash, CRASH HARD, and the only solution will be more sugar. More coffee. More crash and burn. 

Lastly, all the things you add to your coffee  have calories and not the healthy kind that vegetables and lean meats offer. The funky kind that your body doesn't know what to do with so they store them somewhere, any where for that matter. It similar to having unexpected company and your shoving things in the closet, under the bed,  anywhere that is out of sight. Eventually you run out of secret spots and they get left for everyone to see. 

You picking up what we're putting down? We challenge you to following:

Less coffee, more water, no additives.  For the ones who don't drink it black, at first you will automatically drink less so consider it a win-win. 

If you already drink it black, but you're going to try drink less, you may experience a dull headache. That's alright. It won't last forever! Toughen up, Buttercup!
