Say it ain't so! Trust me, I know the feeling. Not only do I find coffee delicious but the morning ritual has become a comforting habit I wallow at the thought of giving up. Between cutting back on caffeine consumption and getting a better night’s sleep, it is totally possible to ease up on caffeine with a torture-free plan that pays off and has you feeling better in no time!
Here are ways to cut down on your caffeine consumption:
Decrease gradually. No need to go cold turkey. Plan out your coffee weening over the course of a couple weeks to help lessen caffeine withdrawal symptoms such as headaches, irritability, jitteriness, and nausea.
Switch to Tea. Consider changing from coffee in the morning to tea. Herbal teas have quite a bit less caffeine and contribute other health benefits.
Try decaf. Switch to decaf coffee or decaffeinated soda.
Cut back your portion size.Try switching to a small instead of your usual medium or large and see if you can really tell much difference in your morning jolt.
