Reducing Coffee Intake
I'm a regular coffee drinker and have a full Espresso machine at home. (That's my coffee cup from Daiso up there.) But lately, I've been feeling the negative effects of drinking too much coffee. Besides the early morning dose I bring from home in my Tiger coffee flask, lately I also drank coffee in the afternoons, after lunch and more. Just a couple of days ago, I found myself extremely exhausted right after drinking a very strong coffee I bought. I knew I was in trouble. Coffee is known for some negative side effects, including dehydration and also causing restlessness, due to the caffeine. I wasn't able to sleep well and I suspected it might have to do with the vicious coffee cycle. I suspected I was also affected by adrenal fatique (something that I read about, I have some thyroid issues). All these must not be good for my beautification efforts. I know very well that if I am exhausted, I will not look fresh and youthful at all, no matter how much makeup or skincare I use! So, I decided I need to cut down on coffee. I can't abstain completely. I've tried before and failed. It is a psychological dependence on the drink. I shall have to stick to one small cup a day and nothing more. I hope this will work! © Copyright. All rights reserved.
