The Ultimate Tips for Adjusting to Daylight Savings Time

Tips for Adjusting to Daylight Savings Time

It’s almost time for all of us to fall back with daylight savings time. While originally invented as a way to conserve fuel, back in the early nineteen hundreds, by Germany, it didn’t become fully standard in the US until 1966. One of the reasons that the first Sunday of November was chosen as the fall-back date for daylight savings time was to allow children more sunlit time for trick or treating on Halloween. Now that it’s here again, it’s time to prepare for scheduling blunders, difficulty sleeping, and perhaps feeling groggy in the morning.

Dealing with Mental Fog: Symptoms and Solutions

Mental Fog- Symptoms and Solutions

It’s 2 pm. You can’t think. You might have made a mistake in a report, you keep having trouble saying words, and you’re reaching for a Mocca Shot energy gummy. This is a situation many of us find ourselves in daily and it has a name: brain fog.

What is Caffeine Microdosing?

Caffeine Microdosing

If you enjoy coffee, tea, caffeinated sodas, or energy drinks, you are not alone. Research shows that about 90% of Americans take caffeine daily. However, many of us also experience some kind of negative side effects from drinking multiple caffeinated beverages throughout the day. Common side effects include jitters, anxiety, headache, fatigue, and dreaded irritability. Many people are trying to bypass these side effects and still keep their energy up by caffeine microdosing. Caffeine microdosing is the practice of using small amounts of caffeine during the day to keep energy levels up. Rather than consuming a large cup of coffee, tea, or soda two or three times a day, you can microdose by using about 30-50mg of caffeine every few hours. (That’s about a quarter of a Mocca Shot energy gummy.) This allows you to avoid extreme energy fluctuations and maintain a more steady, stable energy throughout the day.
