There are few things in mum life that are a constant. Things seem to change with the wind. One day your child is a-okay, the next they’re sick or throwing tantrums and it throws your life into chaos. Trust me, with two kids under two years of age, I know.
However, there are two things that can be relied upon to never, ever change – firstly, that you will always be in a sleep deficit, and secondly that you will ALWAYS require coffee! Mmmmm…
Coffee sometimes gets a bad rap, with many fearing that it can trigger dangerous heart palpitations. But new research shows that drinking a strong coffee in the morning can deliver a much needed boost without getting your heart racing.
Even better, the study showed that regular coffee consumption can actually be good for your cardiovascular health and definitely won’t kill you.
Scientists at the University of California have suggested it's time to reconsider the old guidelines advising against the regular consumption of caffeine to prevent disturbances of the heart’s cardiac rhythm, saying that people are missing out on some of the potential health benefits of caffeinated food and drinks such as chocolate and tea. Wait, chocolate is good for you too? Tick!
