Think twice about caffeine The coffee, soda, energy drink, etc. that you depend on to get through a stressful morning may cause additional stress later in the day. Two cups of coffee a day contribute to anxiety. More than two cups create anxiety. Some may try to outsmart their body by consuming one cup, unaware of the toxic chemicals inside of coffee that produces stress and addiction, due to the processes to make coffee. Find out how much caffeine is contained in the beverage you drink. To encourage yourself to have noncaffeinated alternatives, tape a note on your mug reminding you to have “herbal” tea instead. Better still, keep a half-gallon bottle of water on your desk. Attempt to finish it by the end of the workday. It will keep hunger at bay, discouraging stress-related snacking. When your body is adequately hydrated, it works better and produces more energy, the energy you need to do your job well and most importantly fight stress.
