ImageA conversation at work yesterday reminded me that this time last year, I was a devoted tea drinker. It wasn’t until this fall, when I got my first coffee maker in years, that I got back into the morning coffee habit. Unfortunately, my body reacts a little differently to it now than it did when I was in my early twenties.

Yesterday I had one of those “click” moments when being made aware of how much tension I really do store in my upper back.  How did that get there?

With tomorrow’s solar eclipse already working its magic, it feels like the right time to make a change, however small. So starting with today, I’m going back to drinking green tea in the morning. I think I’ll like it. I certainly didn’t miss the black-coffee jitters before, and I don’t think I’ll miss them now.

So yeah. When I spoke a few weeks ago about 2012 being the beginning of that “whole other ball game,” I didn’t even realize how true that was going to turn out to be. Long story short, it’s all good. For right now, I’m just relaxed and paying attention.

How does caffeine affect you? Do you prefer tea or coffee?
