Caffeine compared to climbing stairs?
Caffeine or Exercise?
What helps keep you alert? Caffeine compared to climbing stairs or general exercise? We’ve all had nights where we can’t sleep. Worries, sirens, kids, or for no apparent reason at all. Perhaps it was the spicy italian sausage or a bit too much red wine. Or your mattress? Yes, your mattress…we do sell mattresses – you know?
What’s the remedy? Recent research compared the effect of caffeine VS climbing stairs for 10 minutes. And the results?
“The team found that under the stair-walking condition, participants reported greater motivation to work and an increase in energy, compared with those under the caffeine condition.”
The energized feeling was temporary and the caffeine had no measurable effect.
We at Fawcett prefer a balanced approach. Don’t take our caffeine (coffee) away…never!….but combining quality java with a good walk, run, yoga at lunch time (or stairclimb) helps keep us alert and sharp on those days when you simply can’t get enough sleep.
Disclaimer: Fawcett Mattress takes no responsibility for your increased consumption of caffeinated beverages, red wine, beer or any other such fluid you may imbibe. Furthermore, any injuries resulting from increased walking, yoga, cycling, any and all exercise, as a result of this article, we shall be forever indemnified.
Ahem….However, if you wish to credit us with a better night’s sleep due to our amazing mattresses, or for any other reason, we will humbly accept.
