Simple things and small shifts in thinking can change our life… and the world. Often times, we are getting too comfortable in our daily routines. We stop challenging ourselves and lose the drive in making our life more meaningful, interesting and fun. One of the thing is “coffee”.
There is a way to make it better. Find it.
Thomas Edison, American inventor (1847-1931)
Coffee is one of the most widely consumed beverages. Many people start their day with a steaming cup of freshly brewed coffee. I will not discuss the possible benefits or risks of drinking coffee, but it’s a fact that the majority of people drink coffee to boost their energy, to focus better on a task or to refresh themselves.
Is it coffee energy drink?
‘Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.’
A lot of people think that caffeine is the main energy source of coffee. However, I don’t agree with it. In my point of view, the biggest energy source of coffee are the mindful moments while we are enjoying the drink, our company and the environment around us. Magic happens when we practice mindfulness and start to notice and appreciate the coffee’s story from the plantation to the cup as well as the flavours, aromas and texture of the final drink. These exciting, magic and relaxing moments will give us energy.
Let’s also keep in mind that that caffeine doen’t give us energy. Through a kind of biological trickery, caffeine tricks us into thinking that we are not tired.

If you want to drink a coffee like real energy drink, sugar, milk or cream needs to be added. One may also enjoy an energetic meal before drinking the coffee.
