Coffee and tea both have plenty of benefits, as does caffeine itself.
Problems only occur when we have too much, and that’s why you should switch to decaf for the afternoon.
When we have too much caffeine (more than 2-3 cups of coffee) the negative side effects start to kick in. You might experience:
- Energy crashes
- Muscle twitching
- Rapid heart rate
- Difficulty relaxing
- Difficulty getting to sleep
- Poor quality sleep
Enjoy your regular cup-a-joe in the morning, but switch to decaf for the afternoon and allow yourself to slowly wind down, and avoid the negative consequences of having too much caffeine in a day.
