Who doesn’t enjoy a freshly brewed cup of coffee first thing in the morning? Or perhaps your caffeine indulgence is a soda pop in the afternoon with some chips? Still, some can’t even go through the day without a little chocolate to treat themselves for a work day gone well … or wrong for that matter. Most of us have some sort of caffeine throughout the day, whether through beverages or desserts, but when does a little become too much?
Sometimes, your body might be letting you know, even if you are not picking up the signals.
We’ve put together the 10 most common signs to watch for when dealing with caffeine.
Many people need that cup of coffee in the morning (or late afternoon) to wake up, as caffeine helps to awaken individuals and keep them alert. Therefore, too much coffee (or pop and tea) during the day can affect one’s ability to fall asleep when they need to. More often than not, this turns into an unhealthy pattern where individuals simply can’t fall asleep, therefore they do not get a good night’s rest: resulting in needing even more caffeine during the day to stay awake. If this is happening to you, you may want to slowly cut down the amount of caffeine you have during the day. In general, it is recommended to refrain from drinking or eating any foods or drinks with caffeine in them, before bed.
