What does coffee means to a working mom?

I know a lot of people who are really heavy coffee drinker. They love the aroma and  good effects it bring to their body. But I know a few who doesn’t like it and would rather settle for a bag of tea.

Coffee has some good and bad effects in your body. Taking too much is definitely not good. It can trigger migraine, causes anxiety, agitation, insomnia, etc. On the good side though, caffeine is an antioxidant which helps improves mood, stops headaches, reduce risk of type 2 diabetes and some believe that it helps prevent certain type of cancer. I heard on a podcast that black coffee is the best for your health because it is really pure coffee, about 2 cups a day. But I cant drink black coffee, it is just too bitter for me. The frappuccinos though, it has caffeine in it but has too much dairy and sugar.

I am really not a morning person but I do have a day job. I think I’m getting use to it now. I am not a big fan of coffee but I drink some once in a while. Waking up early in the morning prepping myself for a 12 hour shift, oh boy I need something to wake me up.

So at work, once I got settled, I would grab a cup of coffee with 2 non-dairy creamers and 2 sugars. Sometimes, I don’t even finish the whole cup. I have low tolerance to caffeine, so I get dizzy sometimes if I’m drinking too much. But with chocolates, that does not seem to cause any of that at all. Also, it makes me go to the bathroom a lot. That’s also why I don’t drink that if I’m onto a long car ride. But yeah, coffee in the morning really helps me get through the day. Oftentimes, I’ll have a second cup during mid afternoon. Once the caffeine kicks in, it just wakes up every nerve in my body. lol I am wide awake and I feel recharged. Fresh brewed coffee is always nice.
