We all know that coffee gives us that extra bit of spark in the morning. That much-needed kick could be giving us lots of other benefits too. Scientists researching the effects that coffee has on your body and your mind have found some rather interesting facts.
As well as giving us a much-needed lift in the morning, coffee stimulates energy consumption. It does this by stimulating brown adipose tissue which in turn converts white adipose tissue or stored body fat, into energy.
So coffee helps the body. But how does it help the mind? One of the areas that coffee has long believed to be of use was in stimulating creativity. But is there truth in this?
Coffee Does Not Make You More Creative- But It Does Help!
There have always been lots of debates about whether or not coffee makes us creative. Some people go to great lengths to reap the supposed benefits of coffee, such as famous French Novelist, Balzac, who used to grind up the equivalent of 50 cups of coffee and ingest the fines raw. But was this severe caffeine use behind all of his writing?
We all know that coffee is a stimulant and when we drink it, we feel sharper. We’re often not able to work until we’ve had our first cup of coffee of the day. Some of us even take a few cups before we are really firing on all cylinders. But does it help to make us more creative?
Creativity is quite hard to measure. Creative thought comes from the ability to make new connections between different things and to come up with something new. Scientists believe that in order to do that, you need to be able to allow your mind to wander. Coffee is something that has the opposite effect. In fact, coffee is great for keeping your mind on track and making sure that you are fully focused.
So, what this means is that if you are trying to think of an idea for something, coffee may not be the drink that you should go to. However, this is not the end of the line for coffee. There are ways that it can help, and it certainly does have its benefits in the creative process.
When it comes to turning your creative thoughts into something more real and tangible, you often need to work quite hard. And that is where coffee offers to help your creativity.
