Today is National Coffee Day and there are a few major name-brand businesses offering free cups of java today. We assume you know where they are. Of course, there are those who believe that there are better ways to start the day than a nice, hot cup of rich, flavorful coffee freshly made and waiting. Forbes Living TV does not agree.
There is some questionable research published which states that people who drink caffeinated drinks in the morning need caffeine all day in order to function. There is another report which states that there are better ways to become alert and stay alert than consuming any caffeinated beverage.
Some people can get up early and exercise which can increase energy and help boost alertness. Other feel that eating a healthy breakfast which may include herbal tea is a better way to get the day started and stay on track all day. Short naps in the middle of the day can also boost energy and alertness. Forbes Living TV would be remiss to not mention that coffee lovers don’t just drink a cup in the morning to wake up. They drink it because they like the flavor, they appreciate its antioxidant values and its richness. Drinking coffee in the morning does not make the java aficionado feel sluggish in the afternoon. In fact, it makes them feel empowered to master the day ahead. If they happen to want (not need) a cup of coffee later in the day, it’s simply a matter of taste. Pardon us now while we slip out for a quick, free cup of our favorite brew on this National Coffee Day.
