Skip Energy Drinks When You're Tired

Energy drinks contain up to five times more caffeine than coffee, but the boost they provide is fleeting and they often come with unpleasant side effects like nervousness, irritability, and rapid heartbeat. Also, these drinks often contain high levels of taurine, a central nervous system stimulant and upwards of 50 grams of sugar (that's 13 teaspoons worth!).  All that sweet stuff spikes blood sugar temporarily, crashing soon after, leaving you feeling foggy and sluggish- and reaching for another energy drink.
