Why You Shouldn’t Drink Coffee
1. Caffeine can affect your sleep
This one’s a no-brainer. The thing that wakes you up in the morning will have ripple effects on your sleep. Caffeine has a half-life of four to six hours, but the effects of caffeine can last up to 12 hours. Depending on when you have your last coffee, this can affect your normal sleep patterns.
2. Over-drinking coffee reduces the positive effects of caffeine
As with any other drug, the human body starts being resistant to the effects of drinking coffee. If you can knock down 10 cups a day, the positive effects of each cup is probably less than with someone who only drinks one.
3. Coffee stains and corrodes your teeth
If you’re client facing or concerned about your appearance in anyway, coffee will probably be your worst enemy. Aside from just staining your pearly whites, coffee is acidic and the addition of sugar to your daily cup will lead to tooth decay in the long term.
4. Coffee can increase anxiety
Coffee affects various people quite differently — some come off seemingly unfazed by it, while others report heart palpitations when drinking coffee. One thing that is typically universal though, is it increases anxiety levels. If you’re having anxiety issues, stay away from coffee.
5. Coffee is so 2016
Forget third-wave coffee and even Kombucha. The next big thing will be Guayusa (pronounced gwhy-yoo-sa). Unconvinced? Well, the likes of Channing Tatum, Richard Branson and Leonardo DiCaprio swear by it and it is also backed by a team of young social entrepreneurs, not unlike yourself.
