Some days you wake up chirpy and energetic waiting for the day to begin and some days you arise wishing there were a few more hours left to sleep.
Whether you wake up full of energy or get out of bed wishing for something that will kick start your day, a cup of coffee will boost your energy and get you going for a long day ahead, whether at work or at home with the kids.
Caffeine in coffee: A natural stimulant
Known for its “wake-up” effect, caffeine in coffee stimulates both physical and mental performance, making it a popular beverage all across the world.
Coffee: A fresh morning start
In the morning reaching for a cup of coffee improves your alertness and helps you overcome fatigue and drowsiness, giving you an energetic start to your day.
A recent study shows that in moderation, 300mg of caffeine/day, the amount found in 3-4 cups will not only increase your alertness but also help improve your short term memory and enhance your performance. It will help you stay focused during the day and more concentrated at work.
Here are some additional tips to help you start your day fresh and perform better:
Stimulate your day after lunch! It is quite normal to feel sleepy after a heavy lunch. And there is significant evidence that demonstrates the existence of a post lunch dip, resulting in an inability to sustain attention. This is normal and is in fact our body’s natural rhythm for demanding rest, usually occurring about 7 hours after waking up.
This is why a stimulating cup of coffee after lunch can help you get your work performance back on track. Caffeine helps you overcome drowsiness and fatigue while restoring your alertness. It will boost your energy and improve your concentration, making it just what you need to get through the second half of the day.
Did you know? Coffee can also put you in a better mood after lunch. Studies show that people who have a coffee after lunch feel more contented and are more interested in their work. What else can you do to reduce the post lunch dip?
Whatever your reason, whether to start your day or to help maintain your energy, coffee is a drink you can enjoy anytime. For coffee lovers, remember to drink coffee in moderation, i.e 3-4 cups a day.
Good to know: 80% of employees say they are more productive and relaxed at the workplace when they have their coffee.
