Can there be an increase in productivity through caffeine? Do you always start your day with a cup of coffee? Wait. Always might be too vague a word. Do you often start your day with a cup of coffee? Whether you belong to the category before or the latter, you might be doing the right thing. Handling time efficiently has a lot to do with brainpower, and what better way to power it up than with a drink you’re most familiar with.
Productivity Through Caffeine: It Doesn’t Just Keep You “Awake”
There’s no doubt you already know the fact that caffeine is a stimulant, albeit mild. It’s the very reason waking up early in the mornings in a groggy, slow-moving, troll-ish you are perked up after a cup of it. Of hot and steaming coffee. It instantly gets you going. If you’re like me, somehow, and I don’t know how scientific this is, but even just the mere aroma of it pulls me out of slumber and I’m ready mode.
For others, it’s become a habit (me included, and maybe you as well). The AM isn’t complete without it. The AM can’t get its shoes on and start moving without that sip of bitter yet rich and soothing taste. For those who have it with milk and sugar, then with a taste of that cream and sweetness included.
Call it what fuel is to a sleek and shiny black Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Which, once fueled up, can glide on the road with that elegance and speed like no other. I’m using this comparison because I randomly saw said luxury vehicle whilst I was browsing the internet for randomness.
Fact Or Myth: Is Coffee Unhealthy?
Decade after decade has passed and there has always been a tug of war between those who say that coffee is good for you and those who tell of the opposite. You’ve noticed, haven’t you? One moment, you read about how amazing this drink is. Give it some time and you’ll have articles and posts mentioning how it’s more harmful than helpful.
Then the cycle repeats. Some have stated that it’s the media. Others have stated that it’s the coffeemakers themselves that spark this back and forth. In most if not all cases, it’s about profit and we can’t really blame them for thinking that way.
Whether one of these entities are responsible for it, it doesn’t change the fact that coffee influences much of the world. An eye-opening 2.25 billion cups annually, to be less vague.
Anyway, heading back to the Do-It, Don’t-Do-It of my go-to drink right before I start working, researched-backed studies show that folks, yes, it’s good for us. Yes, most of you were probably thinking the same thing even before heading to this post.
So to make my typing of that sentence legitimate, reading and research were done. This is no old wive’s tale.
The Benefits Of Coffee” Productivity Through Caffeine
