But it’s definitely not sleep but rizzz rizzz reaches hey guys during this busy exam period I thought it might be a good opportunity to talk about coffee during this time we might find that we’re reaching for that extra cup of coffee in the afternoon or maybe opting for that double shot instead of that single shot so I just.
Some of the things that can happen if we over consume coffee firstly it can impact our stress levels so if we’re studying for our exams we’re pulling long marathon study sessions we’re probably already experiencing a high level of stress and over consuming.
Coffee can actually make this stress level worse secondly over consuming coffee can negatively impact our sleep so it’s very easy to get into.
A vicious cycle where we don’t get enough sleep so we over consume coffee so we don’t get enough sleep so we over consume coffee and the longer this cycle continues the worse our stress levels get and the worse our sleep.
Gets another common trap is consuming coffee too late in the day so caffeine has a half-life of around about 6 hours so if we consume a double shot of coffee at 2 o’clock in the afternoon we.
Still have the equivalent of a single shot.
Of coffee in our system at around 8 p.
thirdly something a lot of people fail to consider is the excess calories that can come from over consuming coffee so a standard.
Flat white is approximately 120 calories so if we’re having two or three of those a day backing up to the equivalent of an extra meal per day and that’s before you add a teaspoon of sugar so I’m not saying to cut coffee I don’t want to live in a world without coffee but what I am saying is instead of reaching for that extra cup or that extra strength coffee maybe we can look at some better alternatives take a break take.
Ten to thirty minutes get outside step away from the books or the computer have something to eat go for a walk or have a nap this is going to increase our productivity and increase our concentration without the need for that extra coffee.
