A Lesson Has Been Learnt

I Did Not, In Fact, Learn A Lesson

You may have noticed that I did not publish a post yesterday. Or maybe you aren’t as obsessed with me as I am with myself and didn’t even notice. Either way, I’m here to explain what happened and why I didn’t post. Because I didn’t really have any other ideas for what to post today. And because I learnt a lesson I am hoping not to forget for a very long time.

Yesterday, I thought I would treat myself. As you may know by now, I try to eat plant based and oil-free at home. I’ve been doing that for. a few months now. However, I also like to treat myself once in a while. I don’t believe in very strict diets or restrict eating. In my opinion, some junk food is okay once in a while. As long as the majority of your food is healthy.

Well, I went out to eat with my sister and cousin brother yesterday. And ordered an iced coffee. I absolutely love coffee but I know it gives me anxiety so I try to avoid it. However, I really wanted one yesterday and ordered it. Bad idea. It gave me so much anxiety especially after a few hours. The entire night I was crazy anxious and on the verge on a panic attack. I couldn’t sleep all night. I took some CBD oil and did some breathing exercises which helped but I was still pretty anxious. It only helped a little.

I had such an awful evening and night I have honestly promised myself I am never drinking coffee again lol. And that’s why there was no post, I was too anxious to write. Or do anything really. Let’s just say, lesson very much learnt.

  1. I am the biggest fan of iced coffee!! Oh man, sorry to hear that it causes so much anxiety. Caffeine is weird like that! When I drink espresso I get super jittery, so I don’t go there. I learned my lesson too.
    Hope you are feeling better today.

      1. Dear Pooja so sorry you felt so anxious. My advice is to try Chamomile tea. It certainly has a calming effect on me and sometimes sends me to sleep. Take care. Oriel x

        1. Thanks so much, I drink chamomile tea almost every night and yes it helps so much with sleep/stress/anxiety. I’ve also noticed that it helps with digestion which is always nice.

  2. Oh no! I hope you’re feeling better now! It’s true that it’s sometimes hard to resist eating/drinking something even when we know we’re not gonna feel good afterwards. At least you’ve “learnt your lesson”, and maybe you’ll feel better about skipping coffee next time! Take care!

  3. That sounds miserable. I love coffee too and I’m sorry to hear your day out ended up being so rough in the end. Have you tried dandelion tea? It has no caffeine but people often drink it instead of coffee as it has a somewhat similar flavor!

  4. Oh no, sorry to hear about the anxiety πŸ˜• I have to stick to decaff but mostly drink tea. I do remember pulling all nighters with uni deadlines and coffee on tap though and my anxiety wasn’t ever great after that! Hope you’re feeling calmer x
