Prophylactic self-isolation for coffee, creation and inspiration. Day 121st.

You won’t believe me, but I believe myself. How a new attitude to COFFEE has changed me in a year (from July 2019):

Many times, many years I was trying to get rid of coffee consumption. My main reasons to do so were as following:

  • headache if not drinking coffee at certain time
  • severe headache if trying not to drink coffee for a whole day
  • irritability, nervousness and general coffee addiction: a cup of coffee should be there whatever is happening around
  • sensitivity to weather changes: I needed additional portion of coffee, because I was just falling down without energy before rain starts
  • all those snacks and cakes which are inseparable companions of a coffee cup
  • so much time during a day was constantly dedicated just for coffee drinking
  • my level of energy depended on the external factor – coffee, but not on me
  • consciousness. As I understood that coffee was romping with me as with a marionette puppet – I tried times and times to get rid of it, without a success (or with a temporary success:)), until I read somewhere on internet that:

coffee consumption suppresses creativity

That was a long story, but after 2 weeks of the body’s suffering… – I was free. And we create when we are free…

What has changed within a year without coffee:

  • I started to draw: painting class (before lock down), two online drawing courses, just drawing in a sketchbook for myself
  • tons of energy most of the time, even after workout or heavy physical load (like collecting 100 kg of plastic trash on a beach) : sometimes I feel like having the wings – many folds stronger and hardy than even in my teen-years
  • no headache AT ALL. Could you imagine A YEAR without a headache? Tell me if yes – it would be great to share experience!
  • Many years, I thought it was me, but it was a cup of coffee – that dizziness, nervousness and a manner I behaved was just a consequence of caffeine consumption, but not me. Now I feel my mind is much more calm and conscious
  • In my close-to-40, I started physical activity which requires lots of endurance – aerial dance classes
  • changes in weather do not control me anymore – it could be rainy weather, but there are no more feeling of falling down, being sleepy or loosing energy
  • lots of time saved and less cookies are eaten!
  • I stated to wake up early now, without an alarm!, (4:30-5:30 am every day!), so, obviously have more more time – no need to run and rush, all my time is mine. All your time could be yours too:)
  • I started my blog www.z-antenna. com!

Could you imagine A YEAR without coffee? Tell me if yes – it would be great to share experience!
