Coffee: Its Perks + Reasons to be Bitter

____

The sweet and smoky fragrances of a cup of Joe in the morning (or afternoon, or at any time of the day really) rarely fail to arouse our senses and minds. It’s no wonder that 54% of Americans drink coffee every day. Although many of the components are the same, coffee is prepared in a wide variety of ways that determine the balance of chemicals and nutrients that end up in your cup.

____

Inspirational quote of the day: β€œbelieve in yourself.” The first step towards success is optimism and confidence--even when it comes to optimizing your physical health. In fact, a positive attitude can benefit your bodily health more than you may think. A 30-year study by the Mayo Clinic found that optimists have 50 percent lower risk of early death than pessimists.
