The pros and cons of caffeine

 

My jaw dropped when I saw this fact a while ago. 

 

Did you know that there is a drug that 85% of us use every single day?

 

If you’re one of them, I have a little assignment for you. :) No, I am not going to ask you to quit.

 

It’s caffeine … and we use it to get going in the morning, power through workouts or work, and keep us going through the mid-afternoon slump.

 

The upside of caffeine?

 

  • It gives you energy
  • It boosts your alertness and ability to concentrate
  • It can come in beverages filled with antioxidants that have health benefits (ex: tea!) 

 

That’s all well and good ...

But there are a few downsides.

 

  • It can take up to 10 hours to clear your system – which means it can also get in the way of relaxing – and falling and staying asleep.
  • You can build up a tolerance after your body gets used to it, which means you might need to drink more of it to get the same effects.
  • It can raise your blood pressure.
  • It can make you “wired-tired”: jittery, overstimulated, and tired at the same time.
  • It’s linked with migraines.
  • It doesn’t mix well with some medications and health issues. 
  • Suddenly quitting caffeine can give you headaches and leave you feeling tired, achy, and even nauseous.

This leads me to that little assignment I mentioned earlier. 

 

Today, take some time to ask yourself:

Are you using caffeine – or is it using you? 

 

If you are feeling jittery and stressed, having a hard time sleeping, getting headaches, or finding that your tolerance for caffeine is increasing …

 

Or maybe you feel like you NEED it to keep going through the day – it might be time to reevaluate your caffeine use.

 

Just something to think about!
