Nothing like a cup of joe in the morning?

Coffee – many of us like to drink it (sometimes I think many adults are fueled by it!).

I remember reading an article on an airplane once that described caffeine as ‘the largest uncontrolled drug on the planet‘.

That may be, but many people ‘use’ caffeine or simply coffee on a daily basis to lift their energy or get started with the day.

I’ve heard some home moms say that the coffee pot is what keeps them going during their busy days.

Many people use coffee to hold them up at work, too.

A tea drinker – from the UK to the USA

Coming from the UK, I was a tea drinker….my mum even had one of those ‘teas-mades’ that make the tea first thing in the morning beside the bed.

A buzzer started, a light went on and the tea started brewing.

It was a civilized way to wake up in the morning, by my teenage years I loved my cup of tea in the morning (not to mention the digestive biscuits).

So I didn’t really turn to coffee until later in life when I got married for the second time and moved to the USA (about 11 years now).

In my childhood and younger years, coffee was always that ‘posh’ drink we had in restaurants after dinner and didn’t really make much at home.

Living in Southern Maryland and driving a lot – coffee became my ‘treat’

By the time we moved to Southern Maryland, I had two girls ages three and 19 months.

My now ex-husband drinks coffee.  He used to watch with interest as I tried to make coffee for him using those hotel machines when we were on the move back from West to East.

I really didn’t have much idea how to make coffee then.

Once my older girl started preschool, I found myself regularly driving past a drive-thru coffee stand on the way home and was drawn in.

I have to say, it was really good coffee, and I’ve remained a purist.

I tend to avoid those over-flavored, over-sugared, and high-calorie versions that one can also order.  I’m a latte fan and my idea of going fancy is to maybe add vanilla and have my coffee iced!

So it became a ‘lift’ after the work of getting both girls up and driving the 12 miles or so to preschool.

I would drop off the older one and head home until lunchtime.  Then I would head out again with the younger one in tow to collect the older one.

I know many mothers have gone through this kind of tick-tock routine.

When habits can become a crutch

CoffeeI began to notice that sometimes drinking coffee did not serve me well.  Sometimes I began to get sweats and palpitations after drinking it.

I began to cut back and stuck with a maximum of two cups a day, usually in the morning.

Any more than that, and I began to feel like my sinuses and my head were starting to get squeezed somehow.

I felt hyper, and more easily reactive, and wound up.

As an energy worker and Akashic Records Reader, I avoid coffee and other stimulants when I’m working with others.

Too much coffee?  #Homeopathy has a remedy for that!

If you have that jittery feeling like you’ve had too much coffee, then this homeopathic remedy may be for you!

It’s called coffea cruda and can be taken to calm the nerves.

This from 1800homeopathy

Just as coffee winds up the nerves, its remedy unwinds them, easing many stress-related symptoms as it goes– including hypersensitivity, nervous piercing headaches, and of course, sleeplessness due to an overactive mind, excitement, caffeine or coffee. This single acts best on cheerful, lively, restless people who are sensitive to strain, noise and pain.

I keep this remedy handy and it works well for me even if the issue isn’t related to coffee consumption.

It works really well you have been up studying or writing late too and are having trouble switching off.

My mum was probably right about her Teasmade in the long run

It’s easy to drink less tea, but not so easy to drink less coffee for me.  Something to pay attention to.

In Italy coffee is served with a glass of water too.  Having lived in Italy for a short while, as far as food and drink goes, the Italians really know a thing or two!

Over time, I decided to stop drinking caffeinated coffee.  It has helped me become more relaxed.

I’m now a big fan of coffee substitutes, too.

  1. I’ve always been a coffee drinker; not usually anymore than two cups in the morning. I do know it’s a drug but I’m quite attached to it. I’ve always WANTED to like tea but can’t quite make the transition . . . except when I’m sick; tea is quite comforting to me then.
    Thanks for your insight and sharing the things that you do. I’ve been subscribed to your blog for quite awhile and never comment (I notice that with all the blogs I read each day, I have little time to participate in discussion – I should probably read fewer blogs and comment more!). At any rate, I decided to stop by to say hello and let you know that I do indeed, get a lot of wonderful information here. Thanks again 🙂

  2. One more thing I forgot to tell you: I mentioned your blog in my most recent post and thought you should know! Thanks for your terrific posts Sarah,

    • Hi Patricia,

      Funny how it works…was sitting re-reading your three GrandMaster books yesterday afternoon…I’m finally close to catching up with my book reviews! Looked at my phone, and saw the latest post on your blog with a mention of MY blog. How nice! Thank you!

    Nice information. I did not know about coffee cruda and will keep it in mind.

    I rarely drink more than 3 cups of coffee a day. But I would never give it up. I love coffee and even love coffee ice cream. It has always been something my husband and I share, and our time to talk.

    Sarah, thank you for this insightful article. Coffee is a huge struggle for me, and has been for a while. I gave it up, and feel so much better. I feel “stable”, and hormones present themselves as balanced. However, once in a while, I have a cup, and all those unpleasant symptoms come back. Great article, and thanks again for sharing.

  6. […] back, I thought that was going to be difficult too, but it was relatively painless since I had left giving up caffeine until the consumption of it was more painful than letting it […]
