Too much coffee

Coffee may seem like it wakes you up and it does. For a while. But when you drink too much, your body becomes dependent on the caffeinated drink. Research has shown that when people decrease their coffee intake, they actually feel less tired when morning comes around. Try to stick to just one cup in the morning and cut all coffee by midday.
