Both tea (depending on the type) and coffee mess with your sleep cycles. Also, both might have a lot of chemicals, so regardless of what you have, try choosing bio or organic brands. I have recently reduced my coffee intake to one cup per day. It’s hard but it pays of in the end 🙂 I sleep much better now.
At night I have an infusion instead of tea.
If you are trying to create a new habit, my experience is that you should not be too drastic. For instance, if you have 5 cups of coffee per day, don’t suddenly give up coffee altogether. Try reducing the amounts instead.
I hope this was useful advice!
Have a great day
Let's start with tea. Fresh tea leaves are an incredibly rich source of phytochemicals called catechins, which have potent antioxidant properties. In fact, tea is one of the highest sources of antioxidants in the North American diet. When it comes to health, most of the research has focused on green tea suggesting the beverage may help lower the risk of certain cancers (breast, ovarian) and heart disease. Regular black tea drinkers have also been found to have a lower risk of developing heart disease.
It really comes to understanding that too much of something can be harmful. I love coffee, but I try to only get one or two cups of coffee during breakfast and later on a snack in the afternoon. Finding the amount that feels better for you is the best way to go about it.
