Mornings are absolutely incomplete without our favourite cup of coffee or tea; however this can tend to be exceeded a bit during winters. While we love cosy hot drinks during this season, overconsumption can be a reality to deal with. Caffeine is known to lift your mood, but we definitely do not want to end up having 10 cups of coffee or tea every day and turn it into an addiction. There are often times that we even end up craving caffeine and the high intake of caffeine can even lead to stress or disrupted sleep. Curb that once and for all when you know how you can control your craving for coffee and tea.
