In June of last year I embarked on a no coffee journey for 60 days in hopes of alleviating symptoms of anxiety. All of the books I have read about anxiety, including the workbook that has been most helpful in my anxiety journey, the Anxiety and Phobia Workbook, said that giving up caffeine would be incredibly beneficial. I always knew coffee had a negative effect on me and my anxiety, however who wants to give up coffee?! At the time, I had already given up gluten and most dairy for my health so giving up one more thing for good was not on my radar. However, after eliminating it for 60 days and seeing how it affected me during reintroduction, I knew it was time to give it up for good. It was fine at first, but after a few months I started missing that part of my morning routine and discovered matcha!
