Americans love
their cup of Joe. 54% of Americans over 18 drink coffee every day.
 The average level of consumption is just over
three 9 oz cups a day, which is roughly equivalent to 331mg of caffeine.
 This puts the average consumption (meaning that many people would have to consume
over this amount to balance out the
mean) dangerously close to the upper limit of what appears to be safe (
400mg a day).

For many people, coffee is a part of their daily routine.  It keeps them awake, alert, and chases away
the fatigue.  But is there a safer way to
accomplish this?
Absolutely!  There
are tons of safer, natural ways to improve energy levels.
 However, the underlying theme is this:
take care of your body, and it will reward you for it.
By making sleep a priority, adopting a healthy balanced diet, making sure to get in daily movement and adequate levels of
exercise weekly, you should see a change in energy levels almost immediately.

There is one additional component that can’t be forgotten:
mental health.  The mind is a powerful
thing, and feelings of depression or overwhelming stress can easily cause you
to feel fatigued and foggy and have you reaching for that fourth cup of coffee
in no time, so managing stress and depression is critical in managing your
energy levels. 
Basically, coffee can still be an enjoyable part of our
day, but we should be careful not to overdo it as it can come with some pretty
unpleasant side effects.  Instead, emphasize the components of a healthy
lifestyle and reap the benefits that come with it – including increased energy
and focus!
Need help kickstarting your energy?  Massage can give you
the best of both worlds.  Not only can it increase energy by reducing
the symptoms that cause fatigue (including stress and depression), but it also
improves sleep and decreases pain and muscle recovery – all things that leave
your body and mind feeling refreshed.
