Most coffee-drinking adults are aware of the tongue-in-cheek stereotype of being addicted to drinking caffeinated drinks in the morning to wake them up. Coffee, Monsters, Coca-Cola, Sprite, and energy drinks are just a few. However, others drink water, decaffeinated soda, and any drinks that don’t have caffeine.
Caffeine is a nervous system stimulant. That means that it stimulates the brain to make you more aware of your surroundings. It’s a chemical found in beverages exhausted students and educators can consume to find the energy to get themselves ready in the morning.
Even though there are some cons to drinking caffeine drinks, there are positive spots such as being able to face people in the morning. The myth about drinking too much caffeine states that at a young age growth will be stunted. While this has been debunked (blame your genetics instead) it can cause headaches, migraines, and insomnia.
With high schoolers having to wake up early in the morning, (and even earlier next year, stay tuned for that) many find a need for some caffeine to get up out of bed and ready for the day. When they are running late, coffee can be the friend they need. Some get caffeine from their house, Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, and any other local cafe.
The most consumed caffeinated drink is coffee, of course. It’s a morning drink that most adults have had experience with and some times students develop a fondness of.
