Coffee to me is synonym to happy life, relaxed sip, that feeling of feet up and rocking on the chair and just being myself.
Starting of 2017, due to my husband and a doctor’s excessive push of why coffee, I decided for myself that lets see how long I can be without coffee. After two months of not having coffee or any other kind of caffeine including tea, pop, chocolate, even cake that might have caffeine here is what I feel about coffee.
Coffee is not a necessity for my life. I have a very healthy sleep and work pattern. I can stay massively involved in my work without feeling of fatigue, unless of course I give up as a human and sleep. Motivation in itself is enough for me to stay wide awake. Even after lunch and at those slow work hours between 3 – 5 pm, a fruit or a walk clears my mind enough to get back to work without need for a coffee break. When hanging out with friends at a coffee shop or home, I can always choose healthier options of juice or coco water or lime juice. Its not like every time I see Starbucks I want coffee!
But after a brief two month hiatus here is the real reason why I want to keep coffee in my life.
If you have ever visited a beach or a mountain peak and just sat there for sometime, you have felt that content feeling inside. That moment when you stop thinking about everything else going on in your life. You are alone with your thoughts, your ideas, your feelings and with nature. Your idea of perfection is right there and you are with it. You don’t feel the need to actually be anywhere else in that moment or do anything else. That uplift and that instant fix of mood is what coffee provides to me.
In plain words my elixir.
