Coffee Makes Us Happy

Coffee is one of the best inventions ever created. Seriously, coffee just seems to make everyone happier and that is a fact! In a recent study conducted by the Harvard School of Public Health, coffee can help people to have a more positive life.

So, how does coffee do this? Well, caffeine that is found in coffee can provide the same effects as a mild anti depressant because caffeine can reach almost every known reward system in the brain. In addition, the study suggested that coffee stimulates the release of neurotransmitter dopamine in the brain, thus leading to this spark of happiness when we sip a cup of coffee. Also, many people drink coffee with friends as a way to relax, catch up, and socialize. Coffee makes for a great “excuse” to take a break, treat yourself, and get rejuvenated.

If you think about it, when you drink coffee, there’s this rush of adrenaline that flows throughout the body that makes you feel tingly on the inside; it’s sort of magical. After that cup of coffee is finished, there’s this sense of urgency and energy and motivation to get things done. Sometimes I wonder how I would be able to function without coffee.
