A Coffee Inspired Printable & The Health Benefits of Coffee

Wednesday, November 11, 2015




I think the smell of coffee is one of the little things that makes life worth living. The caffeine inside the drink, however, makes me bounce off the walls. It's not a pretty sight.

So, for the sake of others, I tend to be more of a tea person. That being said, I'm in college now where all-nighters and sleep deprivation are prevalent. I know coffee won't solve all of these problems, but it's a good place to start.

If you needed another excuse to drink more coffee, here's 10: 

  1. The amount of coffee in two 8oz cups improves long term memory
  2. Coffee reduces your chance of type 2 diabetes
  3. It helps burn fat and can increase your metabolic rate up to 11%.
  4. Drinking a cup of coffee makes you less at risk for Alzheimer's. 
  5. Women coffee drinkers are less likely to develop skin cancer.
  6. Coffee lowers your risk of heart disease by almost 21%.
  7. One to three cups a day reduces the risk of male prostate cancer by 30%.
  8. Coffee consumption lowers the risk of liver cancer. 
  9. A cup a day makes you happy. It's scientifically proven (really!)
  10. It wakes you up and warms your hands and gives you a little energy boost.
Added bonus, the smell of coffee alone can decrease stress, so if you like to avoid caffeine like I do, this one's for you. 


"It's never too late for coffee. After all it's always morning somewhere in the world."
