WORK SMARTER NOT HARDER: Is It Better to Drink Coffee in the Morning or Afternoon, for Work?

Is It Better to Drink Coffee in the Morning or Afternoon for Work?

Coffee can certainly give you a little energy boost.  But is it better to have it in the morning, or afternoon, if you’re drinking it at work?  It depends on how old you are.  And your tolerance.  Really.

Studies say your age could play a role in the answer.  One study has found that college students, who had coffee before their morning exams, showed improved performances; while those who were given coffee, before an afternoon exam did not have improvement.

But, another study reveals that, among people who are 65 and older, having a cup of coffee in the afternoon, before a test, helped them do well on it.

The experts warn though, that it also depends on your biology.  Someone with average tolerance to caffeine will generally feel more alert and focused for the next one to six hours after a cup of coffee.  So you can be strategic about when you drink it.

Ultimately, scientists say everyone is different.  And each body has its own biological clock – which means there’s actually no conclusive evidence, which points to whether a morning coffee or afternoon coffee is best for all professionals.
