Happy National Coffee Day!

Since it’s National Coffee Day I decided to post my first blog post on this day since it ties into my blog name. I am literally addicted to coffee, well I wouldn’t say addicted but close to it lol. There is something about coffee that always makes my day better and makes me super happy about life!

I got curious and decided to research why coffee made me feel better mentally and came upon an article. There was a study done by German researchers that when volunteers drank 2-3 cups of coffee, they were able to spot positive words more quicker than negative words. Previous studies have shown that caffeine might stimulate the central nervous system and increase the brain chemical called dopamine, which is linked with rewards, creativeness, impulsiveness, and addiction.

And BAM ladies and gentlemen,we have my answer to why I might or might not be addicted to coffee 🙂 Let me know if anyone else feels this way about coffee! I can’t be the only one?
