Coffee the great pick me up or is it?

Updated on May 7, 2017

Coffee the great pick me up or is it?

Coffee can come in limitless types and brews or roasts as they are more commonly known as and when it comes to flavors those are limitless too. "Coffee", just the word puts a smile on people’s faces doesn’t it? Coffee can come in limitless flavors, styles, and sizes. In order for most people to start their day, they have a cup of coffee, or more sometimes in limitless amounts. It depends on where they work and how long their work day is but usually, you have more than one cup of coffee a day. That is why coffee is a great pick me up, Coffee wakes you up in the morning and gets your blood flowing so that you can begin your day. When you have the second cup of coffee later in the day, which is the pick me up a cup of coffee to keep you going throughout the day. Or is it? How many people drink coffee throughout the day and how many cups? That is a question that you all have to ask yourselves.

Does the coffee that you drink give you that pick me up to get you through the rest of your day?After your first cup that is. As I write this I am only on my first cup of coffee, but I am planning on writing all day so I will most likely have two cups or more but probably just two cups. No not limitless amounts like people are probably wondering I have tried that though and it never works it usually makes me more tired. It also depends on where I am going in the day, though. Sometimes I will have coffee at home and then go out to Tim Horton's or if I am going to Windsor I always stop at Starbucks. If you are going to be out for a while, or if you have a long day how many cups of coffee do you have or do you not even drink coffee? I know that some people might not drink coffee but have other things that they drink and use as great pick me ups.

When you think of coffee do you think of it as a great pick me up? Sure coffee is meant to give you that boost of energy to get through your day, but does it really? At the beginning I am sure that it does, but once the zing of the caffeine wears off, what happens? There is a huge crash unless you continue to drink coffee but hasn’t anyone heard of the expression “the more coffee you drink the harder the crash”. It is true, I have felt it before, and also the more coffee you drink too close together, the quicker the crash because the caffeine just burns through your system. Or at least that is what I feel when I have more than one coffee to close to the other. Others may have limitless cups of coffee throughout the day.

If you are a coffee drinker do you find that it is a great pick me up? Do you find that drinking coffee one after the other causes you to crash faster? If I space the coffees out, for example, one at 9 am and one at 2 pm I find I am more awake and that second coffee does act as a pick me up. Yesterday I went to Starbucks late at night, and had coffee I don’t know if that was such a good idea because I was awake for most of the night coming up with ideas for posts because my mind kept going, but hey I got the work done that I wanted to earlier in the day and just couldn’t do it, so I guess it did the pick me up trick wouldn’t you agree?

Yes, I think that if you space your coffee out throughout the day, then it is used as a great pick me up, do you agree? Coffee with caffeine that is. You need the caffeine to keep you awake, and to keep you going or do you? Some people might agree and others might disagree but it depends on the person. Coffee is a great pick me up in my eyes because it gets me going and keeps me going throughout the day, especially on a day like today where the ideas for writing just flow. Have you ever had that day?

I am drinking my first cup of coffee of the day now and its a great start to my day so that the writing flows limitlessly. Depending on how long I write today I might have a second cup so that it just keeps coming, the heat of the coffee and the taste of it is what helps with the flow of ideas for posts in my eyes. This is because you get to stop and think about the idea you are having trouble with when you take a sip of your coffee.

Drinking your coffee can give you not only a jolt of energy but it can help your thought process limitlessly because just the smell of freshly brewed coffee can change your mindset and when our mindsets change, most of the time it picks our spirits up. Some people might not think this if they are not coffee drinkers but I am sure the coffee drinkers out there will agree.

We have to remember though even though coffee can be a great pick me up when drunk in moderation. If we drink limitless amounts of coffee the pick me up aspect of it isn't there anymore. It becomes something we are dependent on, and that is not really what coffee should be or should it? that is where it doesn't become a great pick me up anymore. If coffee is drank limitlessly it will not have the same effect, on our systems especially if we are trying to use it keep ourselves awake or to just keep ourselves going.

So why not try and think about that the next time you are having more than two cups of coffee in a day.

Coffee the energy supplement

Coffee should be drunk in moderation if you want it to give you the energy kick that it is meant for. If you don't drink it in moderation then the energy kick that you crave from it won't come because your body will be immune to it, which is never a good thing because then coffee can become an addiction. Do you really want coffee to become an addiction?

Do you think coffee is a great pick me up why nor why not? Let's Discuss

      I used to have strong coffee everyday a few years back and I stopped when I didn't had it for one day and I felt sick having a headache, feeling dizzy and sleepy and even shaking a little. That is when I knew I had to stop since it became an addiction, considering that I was having mine strong. Soon I have discovered that I was feeling just as awake during the day as i did when drinking coffee, and that all it took was for a little time to pass from waking up and my body would function perfectly without coffee. So to me coffee' boost is just a myth.

      In my experience, caffeine is a drug that can be abused like any other.

      Personally I find caffeine most effective when I limit myself to one large serving a day 4 days a week or less.

      Coffee has not really been a great pick me up but then I cannot take it so strong as most like it and it also gives me a headache while they claim it cures them. I guess we are just not all made alike!

      I do love the perfect cup but it is rare I get it so pretty much stay away from it.
