If you're like me, you can't start doing any work in the morning until your settled with your cup of coffee. According to a new study published in Frontiers In Psychology, getting your caffeine fix first thing in the morning may not always be the best plan! According to Pure Wow, and researchers at Boston College, the optimal time of day to consume caffeine is actually the moment you most feel the need for it, or when your brain is feeling sluggish.
Here's why: more isn't always the answer when it comes to caffeine. In fact, if you're a morning person- or happened to get a good night sleep the night before and wake up feeling more energized than usual- a cup of coffee won't give you that added boost. Instead, it's more effective to think strategically and save your caffeine fix for when you really hit that 3:00 wall.
