Discussion on: Staying Alert Without Caffeine

I don't know if I can give up coffee. Actually, I just don't want to. I enjoy it too much. However, I've experienced the burnout from not enough rest, and drinking to much coffee and caffeinated beverages. My new rule is to not drink coffee or caffeine after 1:00 in the afternoon. Other than that, if I can get a quick nap, I do that too.

I think most people underestimate the influence that getting quality rest has on the rest of there life. When I was a bit younger, I know I sure did.

Thanks for the post.

I gave up caffeine completely, because I couldn't handle it. My brain just does not respond well to substances.

After shopping around a bit, I found that there are some decent caffeine free blends out there that deliver the taste, that I too really enjoy. Maybe it's something worth considering. ☕

Nice. Any particular brands you would suggest? I doubt if I'll find them in my part of the world but I'm willing to look around 😅

This is my weapon of choice atm. It's a blend of Central and South American beans from various places.

I generally prefer arabica coffee that is longer, but not dark roasted.

Having a time limit is an excellent idea!
