What's your favorite alternative to coffee? I need some caffeine every now and then, but coffee is a big trigger to my panic attacks.

      Green, black and white teas have a lot of caffeine in them. Im from the south, so I LOVE southern sweet tea, but there are lots of other ways to style and drink tea. Just make sure you don't over brew and it wont be bitter. ๐Ÿ’•

      Yerba mate, it gives you a slow boost, instead of coffee that gives you a fast boost.

      This is a great post, chugging coffee first thing in the morning definitely doesn't help with my anxiety and cortisol levels. I love green tea, that sounds like a great replacement.

      coffee is generally a trigger for my anxiety. I can tolerate it if I am exhausted without anxiety side effects, thankfully. That said I generally stay with Matcha (the green tea powder). It's green tea that's grown in the shade. The shade growth vs. sun growth also means boosted levels of L-theanine, which is a calming compound, so it can help counteract the caffeine effect potentially. I also seem to have a better response to green coffees sometimes. It also has lower levels of caffeine.

        @welpe yeah I'm the same way with coffee, so I'll have to try the matcha. Thanks ๐Ÿ˜Š
