Getting the most out of your Coffee

Hi Folks,

Have found that when preparing for a busy day, it’s hard to beat a nice warm cup of java, coffee.

But, if you are like me, wondering, when is that BEST time to enjoy your coffee to get the most benefits.

Hope this helps …

In the past, researchers thought they had proved that coffee doesn’t improve memory. Turns out, coffee can improve your memory. But you have to drink it at the right time.

Experiments on coffee drinkers have traditionally focused on how well people perform on memory tasks after having a cup or two of coffee. And the scientists found zilch. But researchers at Johns Hopkins University have discovered that if you drink coffee (or some other caffeinated beverage) after a memory task, not necessarily before, it does, in fact, strengthen memory.

“We’ve always known that caffeine has cognitive-enhancing effects, but its particular effects on strengthening memories and making them resistant to forgetting has never been examined in detail in humans,” says researcher Michael Yassa.

The new wrinkle in Yassa’s research is the fact that his team of scientists administered 200 milligrams of caffeine to people five minutes after they studied and began to memorize a series of images. (That’s the amount of caffeine found in about two cups of coffee.)

“Almost all prior studies administered caffeine before the study session, so if there is an enhancement, it’s not clear if it’s due to caffeine’s effects on attention, vigilance, focus or other factors. By administering caffeine after the experiment, we rule out all of these effects and make sure that if there is an enhancement, it’s due to memory and nothing else,” said Yassa.

Here’s to a Healthy Productive Boundryless week while enjoying that coffee too !

Attitude makes the Difference

Hi Folks,

Hope you are enjoying a good start to your 2014 Goals.

Here’s a few tips to help you …

Don’t get stuck defining your success only in a dollars – Connect it to Happiness ~

Don’t define success with a dollar amount, but in relation to your happiness.

The habit of defining success with a dollar amount will lead you to constantly chasing a higher price point. It’s a chase that will never end, and a view of success that will never be attained. Get in the habit of seeing your success and your happiness in the same light.

Awaken the same time daily ~

Having a good sleep routine will help you have more energy to do more work during the day. Set aside time for success, be it writing, reading, planning.

Always finish your To-Do list – You do have one ~ Right ?

Get in the habit of never leaving anything that you wanted to finish at the beginning of the day, incomplete at the end. If you simply DO  what you set out to do, success will be your friend.

Keep your To-Do list small and manageable ~

Have 1 or 2 things that are most important to finish, THEN … make sure you finish them First.  Other tasks should be done after your most important ones have been completed.

That ends Part 1 …  Stay tuned for Part 2 ~
