4 Benefits Of Coffee That Reaffirm Why It's The Best Breakfast Drink

My ability to successfully function in the morning would not occur without my favorite drink, a cup of black hazelnut or green mountain's breakfast blend coffee. My family and I are huge coffee drinkers, so you could say my addiction to coffee started at a fairly young age. Drinking my cup of coffee every morning, and sometimes even throughout the day has made me wonder what and if this drink I have learned to love is actually healthy and beneficial to me in any way. So I did some digging to find out some of the benefits coffee has to offer.

1. It boosts memory

Memory is a funny thing to think about. Our memories based off of school information or everyday life can be more difficult to recall based on the time of day. So, the 8 a.m. classes college students think they can take successfully turn south. They have a difficult time paying attention due to being tired. Specifically, drinking coffee would allow a student ot not only function better for early morning classes, but boost their memory during non-optimal times of the day for people.

2. Coffee beans have great antioxidant properties

Coffee Beans have antioxidant properties which reduce oxidative stress processes occurring within our cells and body that often cause mutations to occur, leading to the development of cancer. Light roasted coffee beans tend to have a higher concentration of antioxidants compared to dark roasted coffee bean levels. Having a boost of antioxidant levels in the human body is beneficial for many reasons.

3. It protects your body

The human body can be protected from certain diseases that affect the body from consuming a moderate amount of coffee. Neuromuscular Diseases, such as Parkinson disease were diminished in fellow coffee drinkers, as well as a decrease in cardiovascular disease occurring in those who drank a moderate amount of coffee. This is due to the antioxidant and phytochemicals found in coffee that decreases inflammation within the body.

4. It protects your mind

The human mind can be protected from certain diseases as well by consuming a moderate amount of coffee. One example is the decreased risk of Alzheimer's occurring in a person's lifetime. A study done a couple of years ago concluded that those who drank coffee on a daily basis compared to those who did not were found to be less likely to have Alzheimer's by 60%

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
