Less coffee means more energy

At the beginning of this year I decided to initiate a slow process of eliminating caffeine from my life. A month ago I reached the second stage of it – my only source of caffeine is a single cup of coffee in the morning.

The first four days were a bit unpleasant. My energy levels were very low and I struggled with everything. I didn’t have any headaches or upsets – I just wanted to stay in bed and sleep, sleep, sleep.

But the fifth day brought some hope and it has been getting better ever since. My energy levels stabilized throughout a day which actually means I can do more stuff! I am not getting as exhausted as previously – I have enough mental and physical energy for work and leisure. My sleep quality improved a lot. I used to struggle to get up in the morning, constantly repeating my 5 more minutes’ mantra. Now I can get up at 7:00 am on Saturdays to go for a swim! And on top of that I am less moody, anxious and frustrated! Life simply got better!

There is still the third stage of decaffeinating my life waiting for me and it will mean replacing my morning coffee with a decaf one. It will happen over the next two months and to be honest I can’t wait to see the results!
