“Coffee is a hug in a mug.” – Author Unknown
Coffee keeps us going throughout the day. Brewing coffee is the first thing you do in the morning. While you’re busy getting ready for work, making lunches for the kids, or trying to get everyone out the door on time, the savory smell of coffee wafts through your house and tickles the noses of everyone nearby.
Whether you prefer light or dark roast, instant or grind the beans yourself, you’ve probably experienced the morning cup of coffee phenomenon. It’s the perfect moment right after turning on the coffee pot. The coffee is brewing (and smells delicious), and you’re standing in the kitchen as the morning light trickles into through the windows. For a brief moment, it’s like starring in your very own Folgers’ commercial.
Then reality comes screaming back, jolting you out of your moment of peace. But that’s what the coffee is for, right? It’s there to jumpstart your day. However, we’re probably all guilty of multiple-cups-of-coffee days, which look similar to this:
7:00 a.m. – Wake up. Brew coffee. Go to work.
11:00 a.m. – Your 15-minute break. Grab some coffee from the break room.
2:30 p.m. – Mid-afternoon drowsiness. Walk to your local coffee shop and buy coffee and a snack.
6:00 p.m. – It’s too late for coffee. Brew a cup of decaf tea to unwind from your busy day.
So, has that been your day before? If so, you may need more than coffee. Coffee can help start the day, but sometimes, you need to set aside your mug and breathe. Relax. Spend a day at the salon. If some personal TLC has dropped off your to-do list, put it back! And make you a top priority.
We all love coffee. We sip it while reading the morning paper or grab a cup on the way to work. It’s our wakeup call or mid-afternoon reward for working hard. But don’t forget to splurge on other great Southern Oregon deals, too, courtesy of your friends at Limelight Deals.
