Bedtime at 1am.
Woke up at 7am.
Studied for 3hrs.
Went for a 1hr run (and encountered a glorious minion balloon creation, good times 🙂 )
Had my 1st coffee.
Went to work.
Had my 2nd coffee.
Went out for coffee with a friend.
Had my 3rd coffee.
Felt 3 times more jittery and weird than I would ideally like.
Not enough sleep, not quite enough food (…definitely not enough organisation) + a bit too much exercise with the combination of running and walking for three hours at work…. Any one of those things by themselves might have felt okay but together- ickyness.
This is exactly why moderation and balance are so important for me. With a lot of study and work recently I noticed my coffee intake has been going up, so I started just having one a day again, but then yesterday I partially wanted me some coffee ASAP and also got a bit distracted and forgot that three might be a bit much after having cut back. And I was right… it did not feel good.
I felt a little silly for feeling so yucky just for having had three coffees, but nearing the end of the term right now, those sorts of things really matter. Keeping my brain on my study is enough of a mission without even when I feel my best. Taking care of myself physically with running and mentally with yoga is not enough if I drop the ball on stuff like coffee and food and then have to pay the price… (up late with a coffee buzz but too scatterbrained to focus on anything).
Anyway, some plain toast made me feel a little more settled and today is a new day, with the moral of the story being everything is awesome (lego movie flashback) in moderation. Love me my coffee but when I love it too much, it does not love me back.
(Until you have too much and then everything is icky).
What is your coffee max that you can handle? How many a day do you usually have?
Have you seen Lego Movie? – Me and Curtis watched it on our first date so it has a special place in my heart 🙂
