Here at Michigan Creative we love our coffee, so we looked into whether it helps or hinders to drink coffee at work. The results show that… it definitely helps (in our opinion.)
Here are a few reasons why:
- It wakes you up every day, but it could also help you live longer. “A new study published in the journal Circulation found that regular coffee drinkers—people who drank less than five cups of coffee in a given day—have a lower risk of dying early from a number of different causes.” We found an article and video in TIME that shows that coffee can actually help you to live longer!
2. It boosts your metabolism. Drinking coffee can cause a short-term rise in your metabolic rate. It also boosts your energy level, so you can be ready for your morning office meeting. That being said, it is recommended that you drink coffee in moderation because consuming too much can have negative side effects.
3. It’s social. According to Statistic Brain, 54% of Americans over the age of 18 drink coffee every day. That means that meeting over coffee can break the ice when you are first meeting with a client or person that you are doing business with. You will also have something in common to talk about, because everyone who loves coffee, also loves to talk about coffee.
