MORE IDEAS FROM THEARTICLE

1. Increases Energy Level

We all know that caffeine has an effect on our energy level.Caffeine works to block adenosine , a neurotransmitter that causes drowsiness. As a result, your pituitary gland releases hormones that cause your adrenal glands to produce adrenaline.

Caffeine has a half-life of about six hours, meaning that you shouldn't drink it late in the day. That same neurotransmitter, adenosine, is important for regulating your sleep, so it's usually best to avoid drinking regular coffee after 2 or 3 p.m.

3. Makes us Less Depressed

Depression is a real thing, especially as people are faced with the multiple challenges. But coffee can help. Studies have shown that people who drink coffee are20 percent less likely to become depressed.

One of the reasons is that caffeine causes your body to increase the level of dopamine in your brain, which is the chemical that causes you to feel happy. Yes, coffee, at least the kind with caffeine, can literally make you happier.

2. Improves Brain Function

Coffee won't actually make you smarter, but it will help you stay sharp.

The adrenaline produced opens up your airways, allowing you to breathe more easily. That, in turn, can increase the oxygen in your bloodstream, which also affects the brain in positive ways. The result is that you can think more clearly, solve problems, and make decisions faster.

Coffee has also been shown in studies to reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease and dementia.

Action Beats Deliberation
  • Careers are long. There's no need for a mad rush to find the ideal job. The first part of your career is about testing multiple jobs and understanding what you like/dislike and are good and bad at.
  • Don't spend so much time planning and researching the perfect career path -- you don't know what 'work' is yet anyway. Aggressively explore all options that seem interesting, learn, iterate, and you'll arrive to the 'perfect path' much faster.
  • Simply start. Don't wait to 'know more', don't wait for the perfect job, don't wait to know what you want to do before you even start.

Many motivational speakers have mentioned the three to four hour biological limit of creative work that can be accomplished in a day.

Great polymaths and thinkers highlight this short amount of working hours when the creative juices flow.

Manual labour, which is mostly assembly line work, or mindless administrative chores like creating reports can be done for far longer.

Battle Burnout in Your Company for Good
  1. Be vulnerable with your customers. If you're adopting initiatives to prioritize employees' wellbeing, proactively let your customers know. It helps set expectations for how they can work with you, but it also gives them transparency into your culture, values, and priorities.
  2. Prioritize deep work. By having an operating system that values intentional work over time-in-meetings, people have more time to think, create, and reflect.
  3. Set the tone at the top. Building a culture of flexibility and balance only works if employees feel empowered to use it. That's why your leadership team needs to be leading from the front in battling burnout.
