Poll For Anxiety Sufferers: Do You Drink Caffeine?
For most of us, now is the time to stop thinking about work. It’s almost 5 p.m. and the weekend is dangling within our reach!
If you had a rough work week, perhaps you’re exhausted. And I’d love to know something about your exhaustion: do you treat it with sleep or with caffeine?
They’re both perfectly viable fixes for tiredness — but as an anxiety sufferer, perhaps you’re more inclined to opt for a nap over a latte. After all, naps provide all the rejuvenation with none of the caffeine.
Or maybe not. Perhaps napping leaves you sleepier than before you started. Do you turn to caffeine, then?
I ask this question in part out of personal curiosity and in part because I’m beginning a fun little caffeine-related personal experiment next week. I’ll let you in on the details soon.
So, fellow anxiety sufferers: do you drink caffeine? How often? Please let me know in the poll below.
I hope you all have a lovely and relaxing weekend — whether it’s full of sleep, caffeine, or none of the above!
