What Are The Emotional Effects of Caffeine?
Yes, there are indeed emotional effects of caffeine. There’s another side to the caffeine debate, and that’s the impact that it can have on your mood and emotions. And, as with most things related to caffeine, there’s a fine balance to be struck here. Drink a moderate amount, and caffeine can have a positive effect on emotions. Go overboard, however, and it can lead to problems. We spoke with the skincare and beauty researchers at Callysee Cosmetics about what you should know about caffeine and how it can impact your mood.
#1 Alert & Awake
This is the most well-known emotional impact of caffeine. There’s no question that drinking it in moderate amount can lead to heightened alertness and focus during your workday. However, as with most things related to caffeine, there is a flipside to this if you drink too much. Veer into the 5 to 7 cups a day range, and suddenly you’re looking at the possibilities of irritability, anxiety and other issues that can throw your focus off in a hurry.
#2 Mood-Boosting Potential
Another interest aspect of caffeine and coffee is that they can serve to put you in a better overall mood. Several studies have shown that moderate coffee consumption led to a reduced risk of depression. But interestingly, the same “flip side” seems to occur with depression if you drink too much coffee. Overconsumption increases the risk of depression.
#3 Exercise & Weight Loss
One interesting secondary effect of caffeine is its positive impact on exercise potential and weight loss. Caffeine has been shown to increase exercise endurance, improve recovery after workouts and also help people lose more weight in general. These, of course, are all factors that can help improve mood overall.
