I feel like the world’s biggest idiot! One Thursday after running around doing jobs for mum, I went to a café, like I would normally do on a Thursday and ordered coffee. Anyway, I pulled out my computer as I waited for my coffee. Thursday is normally the day I get the most work done I have no idea why that is, it just does. I never totally understood why cafés offer water when you order coffee.
Anyway, I pull my drink bottle out of my backpack, taking few sips before I place it behind my laptop so it won’t get knocked over. My coffee arrived and I did what I normally did – work.
Moving on, between every few sips of coffee, I would take a sip of water. It took me a moment to realise something. A massive something. Because of the caffeine in my system, I should have been buzzing. I wasn’t. My nerves were fine and I wasn’t feeling like I was The Flash while vibrating through a wall. I realised at the last second, drinking water is like a painkiller would be to a headache.
The water stops the effects of the caffeine from causing the buzzing! I wish I had listened to people that have mentioned this to me before! Now, I will always listen to people when they say things like that. I feel like the world’s biggest dork right now!
So, water keeps you calm while caffeine acts like sugar? Who would have thought!
