A passing thought:
If you’re trying to cut down on stress, reduce the amount of daily caffeine you consume. Drinking more than 2 to 3 cups of hot chocolate, tea or coffee a day may produce noticeable mood changes, as well as affecting our emotional and physical health.
Did you know that on average a cup of tea contains around 50 mg of caffeine; an average cup of instant coffee contains between 70 – 100mg of caffeine; a can of cola contains around 40mg of caffeine and a cup of hot chocolate contains between 10-15mg of caffeine?
Not only is caffeine addictive, it can also make us hyper. Something we could do with avoiding, particularly around bedtime. Perhaps, it’s time to change to decaffeinated coffee and cocoa instead of hot chocolate?
