Thought of the day: It's hard to shake off that caffeine addiction. I felt dull and sluggish all day until taking in two cups of Chai at dinner time in the Indian restaurant. The generously caffeinated Chai had the effect of instantly bringing me back to life. And that's exactly why I want to stay away from caffeine. I don't like the fact that my energy and mood depend on a substance and take a mandatory roller coaster ride every day, even if the substance is socially acceptable and perhaps even encouraged. But it's been proven a difficult habit to get rid off, especially during cold and overcast days like this. I'm missing the sunlight and the exercise, both of which can serve as an energy booster and mood modulator for me when my body is screaming for caffeine. Perhaps I should get back in the gym in a day like this to set me on the right course again.
