Coffee definitely helps my working day! I live on a lake and get up between 5-5:30. I go out in my kayak or on my paddle board to enjoy the sunrise and then I get home to start the day.
The smell of brewing coffee signals to me that the day is about to begin and triggers my mind to begin the to-do process. That first warm sip is a positive reinforcement and something I look forward to and begin to think about on the lake. Coffee, for me, is less of an addictive beverage and more of a ritual. That ritual starts the day and drives me through the first course of my tasks.
