Coffee and workplace: between productivity and exhaustion

  • Can’t start a day without coffee and needing a “kick” in the afternoon
  • Emotionally and physically unbalanced: poor energy or swings, inconsistent sleep, irritability, anxiety, unhealthy weight.
  • Crave foods high in sugar, salt, and fat
  • Diet rich in grains, dairy, sugar, and meat (75% or more) that creates an acidic body pH, leading to inflammation
  • Digestive issues, such as stomach pain, flatulence, bloating, and constipation
  • Frequent urination
  • Morning fatigue — having difficulty waking up and being fully alert
  • Poor stress resistance.
  • Do not throw the coffee machine. Instead, educate your employees and let them make a healthy choice for themselves.
  • There are multiple ways to make your workplace attractive instead of an expensive coffee machine or a coffee lounge, for instance freely available whole food snacks and sugar-free healthy drinks.
  • Organize an organization-wide game experiment, for instance, “A month free of coffee”. Turn it into a game with awards at the end.
  • However be mindful of the importance of breaks, which help the brain stay productive and also play an important role in team cohesion. Call them “water breaks”, “exercise breaks”, or “mindful breaks”.
