I can't get through a day without coffee, and I don't have plans to change that anytime soon. I went through a brief, dark period where my doctor recommended I switch to decaf to help with anxiety — that lasted a matter of weeks. There are plenty of legitimate reasons to give up coffee, though. Maybe you're worried about your dependence on coffee, or you want to try to vary your routine. You can even take a break just to test your willpower — I have friends who give up coffee for Lent. Regardless, there are plenty of natural coffee alternatives that won't make you miserable.
I tend to ignore any life advice that requires me to do extra work — for example, exercising regularly has been shown to boost energy, but I'm not about that life, which is why I've only included caffeine alternatives that you can pour in a cup. If your goal is to feel chipper without coffee, it may be a good idea to consider a daily supplement or a doctor's appointment, since a lack of energy can be a sign of a mineral deficiency like iron-deficiency anemia. If you just want to change up your routine, these coffee substitutes will get the job done — and some even contain caffeine.
