Who doesn’t like the smell and taste of coffee in the morning. Researchers suggest that drinking two or more cups of coffee every day can reduce the risk of some cancer, liver disease, and possibly Parkinson’s disease. However, if you have anxiety please consider an alternative beverage. Caffeine is a stimulant and can cause jitters.  For people who are  predisposed to anxiety, caffeine can trigger uncomfortable sensations such as sweaty palms, racing heart, and ringing in the ears. These feelings can trick your brain into feeling stress or anxiety. If this happens remind your self you are having a normal response to a stimulant and that  it will pass shortly. Drink lots of water and try diaphram breathing.
