If you’re anything like us, then the sweet aroma of coffee is often the only thing that can get you out of bed and functioning like a normal human being in the morning.

If you’re constantly resisting the urge to hit your bloodstream with caffeine, relax. It really is okay to get a steady stream of java—so long as you’re stopping at a reasonable time before bed. Here’s why it’s okay to indulge.

1. Your Hangover Must Be Stopped

When combined with anti-inflammatories caffeine helps to banish acetate, the chemical compound responsible for those major FML headaches. Next time you wake up with a pounding head, whip up a quick latte and pop a couple of Panadol for quick relief.

2. It Provides A Short-Term Memory Boost

Caffeine appears to affect the particular areas of the brain responsible for memory and concentration, providing a boost to short-term memory, although it’s not clear how long the effect lasts or how it may vary from person to person.

3. It’ll Help You Kick Butt At Work

You may not be entirely powerless to prevent mental decline, but, according to certain studies, coffee may be able to bolster your brain. Caffeine stimulates the nervous system, which in turn boosts mental alertness and helps you maintain focus for about two hours after consumption.

4. It Boosts Your Calorie Burn

After years of being buffeted by an endless stream of gimmicky weight loss ads, you may be skeptical of this point, but, unlike all those horrifically designed pop-ups, this argument maintains its validity. Having a little java before your workout increases your stamina, so you’re able to stay on the treadmill longer. Just keep it to one cup since caffeine can have a dehydrating effect.

Bottoms up!
