The WHO have designated coffee as potentially being protective against cancer of the uterus and liver. 🤓
Though, as with every good thing, it does need to be drunk in moderation as drinking over 4 cups a day can actually increase your risk of heart disease, cause high blood pressure and fast or abnormal heart rhythms.

It’s so tempting to fall into the same routine week in week out without setting yourself challenges or goals. This can often make us feel underwhelmed and unmotivated to push ourselves to success.
Try writing yourself a short list of things you’d like to achieve by the end of the week. It’ll give you objectives and purpose and so by the time it reaches Friday, you’ll be able to look back and celebrate how much you’ve done.
Our French peers coined the term back in the 17th century to express the joy of life, from the seemingly mundane acts of eating breakfast to having a conversation with a companion.
Fast forward into the 21st century and how many of us feel the joy of having a good conversation with a friend? We are often so overwhelmed by the negativity that surrounds us, our thoughts are clouded to the extent that we are not able to appreciate the small things in life.
Before the week passes us by, make the most of today. Each day is a gift, so be sure to start your day right with a good amount of sleep and a hearty breakfast. Set yourself goals that you want to achieve and allow time for exercise and relaxation. Most importantly try to stay positive, it’s so easy to fall into a spiral of negativity but as we know, this can be self-destructive and you may not achieve anything.
