Hi guys, thanks for hanging with me.
for a while, I’ve been contemplating if I should give up coffee. So technically I told myself that I would eventually, you know just kick my coffee habit. So my plan simply was this, once I finished consuming the coffee I had at home, that it would be the last of my indulgence in coffee. it didn’t really pan out that way. So what started this whole get up about me kicking my coffee habit? honestly, I don’t even believe it’s a habit but it is something that I choose to do simply because I could and I like it.
My consideration for giving up coffee started with me noticing the change around and under my eyes. I realized that I developed dark circles and puffiness around and under my eyes so that just can’t happen or at least continue to happen. Actually, this is really how I incorporated or started to incorporate more water into my diet thus me giving up soda dealing with my eye situation. Even after giving up the soda and increasing my water, I still hadn’t noticed a change in my eyes. And for the life of me it’s just driving me absolutely nuts, bankers even.
Granted I know that I’m not getting any younger; I’m only getting older and as you get older you start to deal with things you didn’t have to deal with as a young adult. It’s been at least a year that I’ve been dealing with my eye situation and for the life of me, I can’t figure out what I honestly need to do. I truly hoped that the increase in water would totally fix it and the fact of giving up soda would totally help but things still seem the same; granted I don’t think my dark circles are as bad as they were but I think it’s more so the puffiness under my eyes that’s really killing me.
I’ve done some reading and I read that coffee can contribute to puffiness of the eyes due to the sugar. What I really need to do is eliminate sugar from my diet. Easier said than done, I know. If I could learn to drink my coffee black that would be great and healthier. The best way to consume coffee is to drink it black. Needless to say, I’m not quite there yet.
I realize that if I want to see a difference in my eyes than I truly need to stop consuming caffeine. Which means that I need to stop drinking coffee. If I give up coffee all together then I hope I’d see a noticeable difference in my eyes. I drink coffee every day, usually at night when I make a cup to take to work. On the weekends I might have two cups, but it depends on the mood I’m in.
I use to drink tea every day and I never had an issue with my eyes, although I put sugar in my tea and it already has caffeine in it, I find that totally weird. Who knows maybe it’s really because I’m getting older and that’s just what it is. Either how you shape it, I don’t want to contribute to a problem if I can avoid it altogether. So when this last can of coffee is finished, I’ll totally be done with coffee.
