If you wake up craving coffee, you are not the only one. Do you get stressed at work and unknowingly resort to a cup of coffee to calm down? We understand that days can get hard sometimes, but caffeine intake to calm those nerves harms both physical and mental health.


If you cannot survive without it then that's where you have a problem. While it has it’s perks, caffeine can clearly mess up with your health. It’s great for a ‘morning boost’ but large amounts of caffeine may lead to fatigue and problems relaxing at bedtime among a variety of different symptoms.

But the right question to ask here is - How much coffee is too much coffee?


Apart from coffee, caffeine is also present in a variety of foods and beverages. Constant consumption of coffee and caffeinated products can slowly deteriorate your health unknowingly making your body addicted to them. But how can one figure out that they are addicted to coffee?


Fatigue, headaches, trouble sleeping, nervousness, restlessness, upset stomach and fast heartbeats are just a few symptoms that indicate caffeine addiction. Some people are sensitive to caffeine than others. Even a small amount of it (one cup) can make them feel jittery and can cause sleeping problems.


Well, you may say that ‘what if I drink coffee in the afternoon?’ Even if you have coffee in the day time, it can cause trouble sleeping at night. It takes a few hours for the caffeine to run in the system causing you problems sleeping even hours after the intake.



Drinking one to two cups of coffee is normal. However, each beverage has different content of caffeine, so make sure you study them before spoiling the sanctity of your body.


If you are new to this, make a mental list of the side effects you get when you consume caffeinated products. Like I said, each person experiences a different symptom which depends upon the amount of caffeine intake.


Gradually understanding and reducing your caffeine intake can make the symptoms go away. If you are like most people and don't experience any of these symptoms, you are good to go! But if you have these troubles and cannot find a solution, it’s probably your caffeine intake.
