Life | Cutting out Caffiene

Charley Lucy Tea Coffee Mug Caffeine Cut Out
Charley Lucy Tea Coffee Mug Caffeine Cut Out
If you've been following me on social media for any length of time or have happened to have bumped into me within the past year or so, you'll know that whenever I can I go through bouts of cutting out caffeine from my diet. This is an absolute killer as:

1) I am completely and utterly tea obsessed at heart.
2) I am a student and am therefore am required to be up at all hours.
3) I'm 99.9% sure I now suffer from fatigue ever since my stint of glandular fever.

Whilst I may feel like a zombie during the day, take frequent naps and can't really hack the late night parties - my body does in fact thank me for it by giving me endless hours of insomnia-free, uninterrupted, blissful sleep. That is, until I go home again and am reunited with the kettle - a mere room away - and I've noticed incredible changes in my sleep pattern as well as my quality and length of sleep. I'm struggling yet again to go caffeine free (once you've made it a day you'll make it a month, I keep telling myself) here's a list of my favourite alternatives to everyone's best brew:

Green Tea - packed full of antioxidants, great for the body and skin, makes you pee a lot.
Chia Tea - it tastes scrummy, can be made into a latte with milk and is completely caffeine free.
Fruit Tea - comes in an abundance of flavours. My favourite is Chamomile and Honey which is extremely calming and next on my to-try list is Lemon because it smells incredibly refreshing!

But never, never decaf. It tasted like damp cardboard.
