A Sip Away From Serenity

I recently read about a study that found our bodies anticipate the effects of beer before it even has time to get into our blood. Basically, once you take as little as a sip of beer, the brain releases dopamine (a hormone associated with rewarding activities).

I found this fascinating. How many times after an exhausting day do you just want to sit back with a cold one? And, the moment you do, don’t you immediately feel better?

And, more importantly, has this been studied with coffee? Because until I take my first sip of coffee in the morning I’m not a human being. I’m just a blob walking blindly through my house, stumbling around until my lips touch that brown liquid for the first time.

And after that, I’m Supermom.

Before:

E Bed Head

After:

E Happy

(All pictures are just examples, no coffee was sampled by the 1 year-old E in the top picture and almost 3 year-old E in the bottom. Just in case anyone was concerned.)

So–

Keep Calm and Drink Coffee

Happy coffee/beer/tea/wine/any other pleasure-inducing beverage drinking!

    I wasn’t much of a coffee drinker until I had kids. It’s now the most important part of my morning. 🙂

    • I wasn’t a coffee person until I started working at a certain coffee shop…but having kids changed me from a recreational coffee drinker to a career coffee drinker. 🙂
