Ever since the blessed days I spent in LA (says the girl who’s idealizing it like crazy) I’ve really tried to maintain my good habits. No more cigarettes, healthier eating, less alcohol, more exercise, and I told you recently about meditation and all the blah blah blah of the annoying girl who goes around with a travel scale that I’m becoming.
The thing I’m questioning like crazy right now, though, is my consumption of tea and coffee.
I’m not the type to believe you can do everything right.
I even think deep down, I’m really attached to my “bad” habits (I say bad, but let’s not go overboard) – that’s why I stayed attached to my daily cigarette and my glass of wine for so long. There’s no one in the world who can freak me out about how much caffeine I’m drinking, enough with trying to have the perfect lifestyle… Except…
On a normal day, I have two mugs of coffee at breakfast, a mug after lunch, and at least two black teas in the afternoon. I have a collection of Mariage Freres teas that are super aromatic that I adore. In the evenings, I drink a delicious caffeine free herbal tea, Kava Stress Relief by Yogi tea.
So that’s really a lot.
I always told myself my system was probably used to it and it didn’t have an effect on me, but is that really possible?
And since I’m going through a really stressful time right now, I wonder if limiting my caffeine might help me to…be a little more chill.
Have you ever tried to reduce your caffeine intake? What effect did it have on you?
