Is a caffeine habit harmless, or can it constitute an addiction to a potent drug? Janice Keller Phelps, MD, shares how at an addictions conference where she guest lectured, juice, and fruit were provided instead of the usual fare of coffee and tea:

โ€œThe doctors were furious. Some of the most virulent reactions came from three of the speakers scheduled to deliver addresses. They flatly refused to start the program until they had their morning cup of coffee. The sponsors had to order a special urn of coffee on the double, and we all had to sit around and wait until it was made and brought out before we could get on with the meeting. I was supposed to talk about addictions that day, but the scene we had just witnessed said more about it than I could have if I had talked all day.โ€ii

A large proportion of caffeine users exhibit dependence-like behaviors.iii Just one cup of coffee a day can create dependency and cause withdrawal symptoms.iv Caffeine has been called โ€œbad habit glueโ€ because it can make other drugs like nicotine more addictive.v

โ€œ๐—š๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ป๐—ฑ๐˜€โ€ ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—ฟ ๐—–๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ป. Americans consume 587 million cups of coffee per day or about 3 cups per person. The daily intake of more than half of Americans is 300 milligrams (mg) of caffeine; 30 percent consume above 500 mg.vi

Major dietary sources of caffeine are from coffee, tea, caffeinated soda and energy drinks. It also is found in varying amounts in chocolate, cocoa, and caffeinated juice drinks. Caffeine-spiked water, alcoholic beveragesโ€”even gumโ€”are now available. Many drugs, especially weight-control aids, alertness tablets, pain relief medications, diuretics, and cold/allergy remedies also contain caffeine. While caffeine can serve as a rescue medicine for an occasional headache or migraine, repeated usage can cause โ€œreboundโ€ headaches when stopped or over-used.

๐— ๐—ฒ๐˜๐—ฎ๐—ฏ๐—ผ๐—น๐—ถ๐—ฐ ๐— ๐—ฎ๐˜†๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—บ. Caffeine causes metabolic mayhem by injecting stress hormones into the system. It manipulates dopamine for a quick lift, but it also can cause an increased risk for depressed mood and mental โ€œfogโ€ later on. How? Caffeine increases cortisol, a stress hormone, which at persistent high levels impairs a key memory and stress-regulating center in the brain, the hippocampus.viiviii

Caffeine uses chemical trickery to induce a state of alertness and wakefulness that finally results in fatigue and depression, much like a โ€œplastic millionaireโ€ uses credit cards to borrow large amounts of money that must be paid back at greatly inflated interest rates.

And interest comes due quickly with drug-induced energy and alertness. Symptoms of repeated caffeine stimulation and withdrawal are headache, fatigue, insomnia, decreased energy, decreased alertness, drowsiness, depression, difficulty concentrating, irritability, and mental โ€œfog.โ€ Flu-like aches, nausea/vomiting, and muscle pain/stiffness can also occur, leaving you craving more caffeine and creating a vicious cycle of dependence. The poor sleep induced by caffeine fuels weight gain, poor blood sugar control, stress, and worsening of fibromyalgia and musculoskeletal pain.

โ€œ๐—•๐˜‚๐˜‡๐˜‡โ€ ๐—ฏ๐˜† ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—•๐—ผ๐˜๐˜๐—น๐—ฒ. Caffeine dependency can form at a young age, usually from caffeinated soft drinks. One-quarter of American beverages consumed are soft drinks.ix That is about 650 8-ounce servings per capita.x Teen consumption is the highest with males drinking an average of three 12-ounce cans a day.xi

The mix of phosphoric acid and sugar, even without caffeine, is not good for the brain, bones or body at any age. A daily 12-ounce soft drink adds 75 cups of sugar in one year. It increases obesity risk in children by 60 percent, and doubles the risk of diabetes in adults. Sugar-free drinks are often higher in caffeine and not effective in appetite control. Soft drinks drain stress-protective nutrients such as calcium, magnesium, and B vitamins.xii xiii

โ€œEating a high-fructose (added sugar) diet over the long term alters your brainโ€™s ability to learn and remember information. Eating too much high-fructose could block insulinโ€™s ability to regulate how cells use and store sugar for the energy required for processing thoughts and emotions. Our study shows that a high-fructose diet harms the brain as well as the body.โ€xiv

Eating plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and beans at regular meal times imparts real strength and vigor. Daily exercise increases energy and mental alertness and is a powerful mood-booster.

Drinking at least 8 glasses of water daily detoxifies the cells. Water improves circulation and organ health, reduces fatigue, controls appetite, aids digestion, improves alertness, and cleanses the entire system of waste. Keep a bottle of water with you throughout the day and drink between meals.

Most people find that a good way to wean from caffeine is a gradual reduction over time. If you are a heavy caffeine user, work with your health care provider and implement change gradually.

Pure water is vital to our survivalโ€”it refreshes and cleanses like no other drink. Will you enjoy more each day? Jesus Christ refers to Himself and His Word, the Bible, as the โ€œWater of Life,โ€ which He invites you to take โ€œfreely.โ€xv If you have not experienced Christ personally, you can receive His cleansing presence today.

Have you ever received a live plant as a gift? The plant needed a specific amount of sunlight, water and other nutrients. Once in a while it might have needed extra care such as removing the dead leaves. What would happen to that plant if it didnโ€™t receive sunlight? Or it never received any water? Or it became ill with some type of disease and you just left it alone? The answer is obvious: it would wither and eventually die.

Youโ€™re going to need to be very intentional in working to keep your marriage healthy. If you never communicated with someone you consider significant in your life, that relationship would likely cease to exist.

Just like a green plant, your relationship with your spouse is very much a living thing. Your spouse needs sunlight (your warmth, love and affection). Your spouse needs water (your acceptance, honesty, praise and admiration). Your spouse needs nutrients (your undivided attention, and actual meals together wouldnโ€™t hurt a thing). Sometimes your spouse even needs a gentle pruning (the healthy โ€œchecks and balancesโ€ that thriving marriages have). Do these things with each other consistently and I can almost guarantee beautiful results (summarized). The reverse is usually also just as true. Ignore and avoid your spouse, withdraw affection, and keep secrets from him or her, and I can just about guarantee disastrous results. Even if these negative actions are unintended or subconscious, they can still have such a damaging impact on your marriage.

1. Take up a new hobby. Be creative. The sky's the limit here -- hiking, biking, woodworking, photography. Anything. Enjoy something together.

2. Tell each other, โ€œI love you,โ€ every morning first thing and every evening as the last thing you say to each other. While youโ€™re at it, may as well share a smooch then too.

3. Praise your spouse in public and in front of the kids. If youโ€™ve been making negative comments about him/her in public and in front of the kids, now is the time to stop that. Itโ€™s very damaging to a personโ€™s ego and gives the idea to the other listeners that you donโ€™t value your partner much.

4. Figure out a time each week the two of you can steal away and be together and talk about things that donโ€™t revolve around the ones you provide care for. Dreams, plans and even things that may never happen are fun to consider together, like a little mental escape from the day. You donโ€™t even have to leave your home to do this, go to your room and shut the door to be unavailable for 15-20 minutes.

5. Choose a book to read together and talk about it. If youโ€™re not a reader, then choose an album (old or new) to listen to and discuss.

6. Hold hands. Show affection. Smile.

In โ€œEvery Family Has a Story,โ€ Darla Johnson shares tips for keeping your marriage alive and thriving.

#WellnessWednesday with Lifestyle Matters
I met Frank on a crowded business flight. As he lowered his breathless, oversized body into the narrow seat, wiping perspiration from his brow, he activated his smart phone with one hand while whisking his laptop out of its case with the other.

Not yielding a second to take in his surroundings, get comfortable, or relax, he hammered away on his laptop while making a rapid series of phone calls until the flight attendant forced a reprieve.

Frank was a successful marketing executive. But his health was in shambles: he was overweight, had high blood pressure, and suffered from insomnia. He had no close friends. His wife had left him. His life alternated from โ€œbouncing-off-the-wallsโ€ busy to inert and apathetic. He lived alone, eating mounds of ice cream, snack foods, and soda pop as he decompressed in front of the television in an attempt to stave off soaring stress levels and nagging loneliness.

Frankโ€™s story illustrates the saying: โ€œWe hurry; we worry; and we bury.โ€ So many of us are hooked on busy, but are barren when it comes to lifeโ€™s most important priorities. We get a lot done, but because there is no balance, itโ€™s doing us inโ€”physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Overstimulation can lead to apathy and boredom. โ€œWhen stimulation comes at us from every side, we reach a point where we cannot respond with much depth to anything. Bombarded with so much that is exciting and demands our attention, we tend toโ€ฆshut down our attention to everything.โ€i

The following three principles lay the foundation for achieving balance while striving for personal, family, and professional success. They are essential and achievable whether you are a busy traveling professional, harried housewife, or stressed student.

๐Ÿ. ๐“๐š๐ค๐ž ๐ญ๐ข๐ฆ๐ž ๐Ÿ๐จ๐ซ ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ๐ซ ๐ฉ๐ก๐ฒ๐ฌ๐ข๐œ๐š๐ฅ ๐ก๐ž๐š๐ฅ๐ญ๐ก. Nix the mindset that you are too busy to take care of your health. The following are essential tools for managing multiple priorities and busy schedules; they are not optional for busy people.

๐˜•๐˜ถ๐˜ต๐˜ณ๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ: Caffeine, sugar, and alcohol are stimulants that rob the nervous system of real energy. They lead to cravings, insomnia and more fatigue. High-fiber fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, and legumes provide nutrients and antioxidants that build brain and immune health, energize the nervous system, and lower stress. Restaurants, airports, and grocery stores now provide more healthful, quick options such as whole grain breads and pastas, delicious mixed green salads and fruit plates, beans, fresh vegetables, trail mixes, and herbal teas. Keep a water bottle with you to remind you to drink water frequently; irritability and fatigue can mean you need water.

๐˜Œ๐˜น๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜ค๐˜ช๐˜ด๐˜ฆ: Exercise reduces anxiety and fatigue and increases energy, both physical and mental. It improves mental focus, problem-solving, and mood. A ten-minute walk can boost your mood for an hour. When traveling, use your time waiting at the airport for walking. After that long meeting or weary day of travel you can unwind and renew your strength with a good walk or work out in the hotel exercise facility! At work, take the stairs. Use break time to take a spin around the block and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine. Drink water and eat fresh fruit instead of chugging soda and downing candy bars.

๐˜™๐˜ฆ๐˜ด๐˜ต: Chronic lack of sleep swamps your system with stress hormones; impairs blood sugar; inhibits learning; increases the risk for disease and depression; and saps mental and physical energy. Quality deep sleep is linked to longer life, improved energy, mood, mental function, and performance. It also lowers the risk for obesity, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer, and many stress-related disorders. Caffeine, high fat and sugar foods, alcohol, late-night eating, holding grudges, and lack of exercise all contribute to poor sleep quality. Slowing your evening pace signals your body and brain that it is time to tone down, rest, and revitalize for a new day.

๐Ÿ. ๐“๐š๐ค๐ž ๐ญ๐ข๐ฆ๐ž ๐Ÿ๐จ๐ซ ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ๐ซ ๐ฆ๐ž๐ง๐ญ๐š๐ฅ ๐š๐ง๐ ๐ฌ๐ฉ๐ข๐ซ๐ข๐ญ๐ฎ๐š๐ฅ ๐ก๐ž๐š๐ฅ๐ญ๐ก. Zoning out in front of the TV or Internet for hours saps energy and increases fatigue and tension. Mentally refreshing diversions, though, are like mini-vacations for the brain. These include relaxing hobbies, recreation, social time, learning new tasks, and volunteering. In addition, spiritual health is at the center of a balanced lifestyle. It is important to take time to submit our priorities to God; He wants us to trust Him to guide us safely through lifeโ€™s busy challenges. Strengthen your spiritual life by connecting with God through prayer, reading the Bible, and reading inspirational book.

When we are crazy busy and about to snap, the inevitable result is inefficiency, irritability, ill-health, and imbalance. โ€œThere are many good things to do; but sometimes doing โ€œgood thingsโ€ can crowd out what is โ€œbest.โ€ Focus on your most important priorities.

๐‘ป๐’‰๐’† ๐‘ณ๐’Š๐’—๐’Š๐’๐’ˆ ๐‘พ๐’๐’“๐’…
Jesus encouraged his work-worn disciples, โ€œCome apartโ€ฆto a quiet spot, and rest a while." For there were many coming and going and they could not get time even to eat.ii

At creation, God knew that we would need special time for rest, friendship, and time with Him, so He set aside a special day for that purpose.iii โ€œ๐‘…๐‘’๐‘š๐‘’๐‘š๐‘๐‘’๐‘Ÿ ๐‘กโ„Ž๐‘’ ๐‘†๐‘Ž๐‘๐‘๐‘Ž๐‘กโ„Ž ๐‘‘๐‘Ž๐‘ฆ, ๐‘ก๐‘œ ๐‘˜๐‘’๐‘’๐‘ ๐‘–๐‘ก โ„Ž๐‘œ๐‘™๐‘ฆโ€ฆ๐‘‡โ„Ž๐‘’ ๐‘ ๐‘’๐‘ฃ๐‘’๐‘›๐‘กโ„Ž ๐‘‘๐‘Ž๐‘ฆ ๐‘–๐‘  ๐‘กโ„Ž๐‘’ ๐‘†๐‘Ž๐‘๐‘๐‘Ž๐‘กโ„Ž ๐‘œ๐‘“ ๐‘กโ„Ž๐‘’ ๐ฟ๐‘‚๐‘…๐ทโ€ฆ๐ผ๐‘› ๐‘–๐‘ก ๐‘ฆ๐‘œ๐‘ข ๐‘ โ„Ž๐‘Ž๐‘™๐‘™ ๐‘‘๐‘œ ๐‘›๐‘œ ๐‘ค๐‘œ๐‘Ÿ๐‘˜โ€ฆโ€ ๐ธ๐‘ฅ๐‘œ๐‘‘๐‘ข๐‘  20: 8-10

God cares about your scheduleโ€”He wants you to rest physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. He invites you to enter into His rest.

We all have multiple roles and responsibilities, including work, spousal, parenting, personal, church, and community. Each role can be fulfilling and energizing when kept in balance. Will you take that step today that will build more balance, strength, confidence, and perseverance into your life tomorrow? A balanced life is shaped one day at a timeโ€”but not by chanceโ€”but by choice!

Some couples have been praying comfortably together for years while other couples find it scary and intimidating to pray together. Here are a few tips for praying together:

1. ๐‘ป๐’‚๐’๐’Œ ๐’‚๐’ƒ๐’๐’–๐’• ๐’Š๐’• ๐’‡๐’Š๐’“๐’”๐’•. If you're not sure what to do, decide beforehand which of you will start and finish the prayer.

3. ๐‘ฒ๐’†๐’†๐’‘ ๐’Š๐’• ๐’”๐’‰๐’๐’“๐’•. Long praying is not the same as effective praying. Don't try to pray for a certain amount of time. Just say what's on your heart, even if it lasts only for a few seconds.

4. ๐‘ซ๐’๐’'๐’• ๐’‘๐’“๐’†๐’‚๐’„๐’‰ ๐’๐’“ ๐’„๐’“๐’Š๐’•๐’Š๐’„๐’Š๐’›๐’†. Do not say something like, "Lord, please help my pagan swine spouse to quit being such a jerk!" Pray for God's favor, encouragement, and anointing on your spouse's life. If he or she needs to be convicted about something, let God do it. It's not your job.

Take on Toilet Paper!
(By Pastor Jay Gallimore)
People are fearful, and terrorized by the villains of disease,
crime, shortages and economic ruin. So, they hoard toilet paper!
The Champions of ๐น๐‘Ž๐‘–๐‘กโ„Ž, ๐ป๐‘œ๐‘๐‘’ ๐‘Ž๐‘›๐‘‘ ๐ฟ๐‘œ๐‘ฃ๐‘’ face these villains
without fear.
Champion ๐‘ญ๐’‚๐’Š๐’•๐’‰: trusts God implicitly. โ€œWhen perplexities
arise, and difficulties confront you... Trust all with God... We
seek the strength of erring, finite man, when we might have the strength of the unerring, infinite God.โ€ [1] Hudson Taylor, the pioneer missionary to China said, โ€œGod is not looking for men of great faith, He is looking for common men to trust His great faithfulness.โ€

Champion ๐‘ฏ๐’๐’‘๐’†: knows the villains are real! The earth is a
swamp of death and decay. But Champion Hope has Godโ€™s
promise. Death will be โ€œswallowed up in victoryโ€. [2] Lawlessness and chaos are not eternal. He has a Messiah who promised, โ€œblessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.โ€ [3] โ€œlet not your heart be troubled... I go to prepare a place for you...I will come again... that where I am, there you may be also.โ€ [4]
Champion Hope doesnโ€™t focus on the swamp, but on the promise! Because the swamp is temporary but the promise is real.

Champion ๐‘ณ๐’๐’—๐’†: is the strongest force in the Universe. But
His real name is Champion Unselfish Love. Many villains try to counterfeit Him. Their names are Lust, Perversion, Indulgence and Selfishness. So, face Champion Love with shortages and he shares what he has. Faced with disease, he will have peace in his heart. Faced with crime, he will pray for them. Faced with economic ruin, he will still sleep peacefully.
Champion Love, loves because His Father is love. And Love never fails. Never has and never will!

swamp of death and decay. But Champion Hope has Godโ€™s
promise. Death will be โ€œswallowed up in victoryโ€. [2] Lawlessness and chaos are not eternal. He has a Messiah who promised, โ€œblessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.โ€ [3] โ€œlet not your heart be troubled... I go to prepare a place for you...I will come again... that where I am, there you may be also.โ€ [4]
Champion Hope doesnโ€™t focus on the swamp, but on the promise! Because the swamp is temporary but the promise is real.

Champion ๐‘ณ๐’๐’—๐’†: is the strongest force in the Universe. But
His real name is Champion Unselfish Love. Many villains try to counterfeit Him. Their names are Lust, Perversion, Indulgence and Selfishness. So, face Champion Love with shortages and he shares what he has. Faced with disease, he will have peace in his heart. Faced with crime, he will pray for them. Faced with economic ruin, he will still sleep peacefully.
Champion Love, loves because His Father is love. And Love never fails. Never has and never will!
