I used to be a big believer in the above phrase. I loved drinking my morning coffee. I loved that moment when the caffeine would literally touch my soul.
My body has changed so much in the last year. I discovered that I am lactose intolerant, and I am also very sensitive to gluten. I have some adjustments to my eating habits, in hopes of feeling better.
Now there is something else nagging at my body in the morning. After eating breakfast and drinking my morning coffee, my stomach often starts to cramp. Sometimes I even break out in a sweat. There have been times when I have wondered if I was going to be able to make it out the door to go to work.
I decided to back off the coffee. In fact, I have gone many days without that morning coffee. And I noticed something rather peculiar. When I wake up in the morning, I feel refreshed and ready to face the day! And that is in spite of a lot of personal things I am dealing with in life. I was not expecting to feel better by giving up my coffee!!
I share this with you in case you find yourself feeling like you need to give yourself a break from that morning caffeine habit. Perhaps my story will inspire to go for it and see if you also feel more refreshed by refraining from your morning coffee.
