Which is better: coffee or a nap?
Both caffeine and sleep have restorative properties.
Sleep. A little nap will refresh.
Caffeine will just stimulate. Two different things. If taken in excess, over long periods of time, caffeine will burn out your adrenal glands which will lead to other major health issues.
A nap! It's much better to take a nap and rest as opposed to feeding artificial energy to yourself in the form of caffeine. Ultimately, you'd crash and be tired and will have to nap in the long run.
Even resting with your eyes closed for about 20 minutes is enough to recharge your batteries a little, and keep you going. I'm not a fan of any stimulants, including caffeine. Caffeine will only prevent sleep, it doesn't actually 'wake you up', so to speak. If you have a serious coffee habit, you might feel like you can't function without that morning Joe. Often times, that addiction is confused with the caffeine actually doing something good for you. The truth is, you're so addicted that you can't get to normal without it. But people who avoid caffeine are already there, and don't have that awful feeling when they wake up, so they don't need the coffee to 'erase' it. I would also recommend an apple and a glass of cold water to give your energy levels a boost when you need it. Both the natural sugar and the cold temperature will stimulate your metabolism, which will deliver energy to your body when you need it.

Do you feel that drinking coffee has had a positive impact on you?The argument about coffee being bad for you has taking a turn these days. They are saying that is has many more benefits than ever thought to be before. Do you have any personal thoughts on the subject?
