Today is National Coffee Day, but I’m celebrating differently than most–by telling you a little about my story.
Thirteen years ago today, I was the No. 1 sales rep in the country for Radio Disney. I was passionate, full of energy and drive, and committed to being as productive as I could each day. I was also hopelessly addicted to coffee. I began each morning with an extra large coffee from Dunkin’ Donuts. Then at lunchtime I had a second large cup of coffee. On most days, I’d follow that up with a third large cup of coffee around 4 p.m. for the final sales push of the day.
Freshly Brewed Tea: Up to three cups of freshly brewed tea a day can provide the brain with a modest amount of caffeine that can enhance memory, focus and mood.
Blueberries: They can improve memory and motor skills. They may help reduce the effects of age-related conditions.
Pomegranate Juice: It has antioxidant benefits, which protects the brain from the damage of free radicals.
Drinking 1-2 cups of coffee a day is harmless to your organism, unless you have some specific medical conditions. The substance has been known to have positive effects like increasing your ability to learn, comprehension, memory, reflexes, and thought clarity. Caffeine causes your brain to have a higher sense of alertness, improving your feeling of well-being and your mood.
