How much coffee is best for improving productivity?
If I drink some coffee my mind seems to work faster even more clearly and I get more done, but if I drink too much I get distracted and can't concentrate. I'd really like to learn how to get the right balance. Does anyone have any tips?
Personally, I'm a heavy coffee drinker, so bear that in mind when factoring in my response. 2 cups (standard mugs) usually gets my brain to a state of useful funtionality.
I love coffee. I admit it, I used to drink a pot full almost daily. Flavored, with cream, was my favorite. But it took a toll on my health. I used to tell myself it's good for us. Coffee can't really hurt us.
I recently stopped drinking coffee. No one who knows me would actually believe that if they didn't see it because I was such an avid coffee drinker. But my doctor told me I would continue to have worsening health if I kept drinking it. He suggested I switch to tea.
After the withdrawal stage (which came with headaches), and elimination of gluten and soy products from my diet, I have amazing energy. I've lost weight. I don't get distracted, fog brain, memory loss....and I'm healthier. I've stopped taking my acid reflux meds! I also walk daily now.
So in my opinion, based on what I've tried that's worked, I stopped all together and that's the only thing that helped my health, mind, energy and productivity improve.
