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.
- Why is it wrong to skip breakfast? I know people who skip breakfast and actually feel better after skipping breakfast.
- I can eat in the morning, but I’m having a hard time eating before going to work because no matter what time I wake up I feel like I’m always running late. I want to eat before I get to work because I want to eat breakfast within an hour of waking up to start my day off right. How do you do it?
- Is eating breakfast the first or last part of your morning routine?
- How do I start remembering things better and feel comfortable with it?
- What are some yummy add-ins that you like to put in your overnight oats?
- Is caffeine okay, or not recommended?
- What do you have for breakfast as a healthy option?
- I have to get two kids (2 and 3) ready every morning and don’t ever feel like I have time to cook eggs for breakfast. What are some very healthy going-out-the-door recipes that take minimal prep?
- Is it good to run before or after breakfast?
- Any small meals that are filling? I’m not very hungry in the morning and don’t know what to eat.
