Coffee Naps Work - Here's What You Need to Know

by Emily Siegel | Van Winkle's

Naps are great in theory: grab a few zzz’s after lunch to shake off the midday yawns. But a quick doze at your desk doesn’t always do the trick. In fact, naps can exacerbate grogginess and throw off your nighttime slumber — the ultimate napping sin.

Confessions of a Coffee Junkie (and a Practical Way to Quit)

In 2006, my blood pressure tested higher than normal and my doctor ordered me off all caffeine. At the moment he issued this edict, I nodded along in happy agreement (maybe it was just the Lexapro?) but the thought bubble over my head went something like:

“You doctors just don’t understand how real people live. C’mon—me, a TRAINER who gets up at FOUR THIRTY in the MORNING, quit drinking COFFEE?? Yeah, right.”

Smoothie in the Summer to Beat the Heat Index

Mmmmmmm, summertime smoothie. You have that aching sweet tooth during the post-lunch doldrums...once upon a time you'd go to the coffee shop and get an iced blended or a frappé coffee with twenty extra sweet ingredients tossed in, because what the heck, if you're going to indulge, you might as well go for it. Then you started reading about ingredients, if not counting calories at least nodding toward their existence. You might also have felt the outrage of spending more for your beverage than you did on your sandwich at lunch. What's an exhausted, needing a pick-me-up person to do?
