A brief update from Caffeine Rehab. I’m drinking a 4-cup pot of half-caff every morning, and I’ve noticed two things so far.
- I feel calmer, and more in control of my reactions. This feels important to me, in a world that’s moving faster and faster. I have an extra sliver of time between impulse and action, a brief pause that gives me more freedom to choose how I want to react.
- With less of a caffeine supplement, I have less energy. I think this means I need to get more serious about fresh air, exercise, vitamins, healthy food and good sleep habits. My track record with building healthy habits is spotty at best.
