'Caffeine stimulates our nervous system and gives us an artificial energy boost. Whilst this may allow us to continue functioning, what effect does relying on a stimulant to get through the day have on our bodies long term? Perhaps we ought to question why we do not naturally have the energy to get through the day in the first place...does it not make more sense to address the original lack of vitality rather than rely on an artificial source to give energy to us?' - Brendan Mooney Psychologist
'If we took away all the caffeine, sugar and other stimulants in society, how much vitality would we feel? Would we still be able to work or make it through the day? Exhaustion has become a major global issue as reflected by the steady increase of stimulants in recent years. Perhaps we could have more conversations worldwide about why we are exhausted, and how we can support ourselves to regain true vitality'. - Brendan Mooney Psychologist
