You know it, and I know it, that coffee scent makes you feel good and it helps initiate that wake-up process. Here is something I didn’t know but learned from an article in Psychology Today Canada, “Coffee makes us feel so good because it is able to tap into virtually every reward system our brain has evolved. Hidden within that hot black silken elixir is a chemical that has taken over your brain by mimicking the actions of cocaine and marijuana.” If we were having coffee I would tell you I am still scratching my head pondering this thought.
If we were having coffee I would introduce you to this month’s theme: Mental Health. Canada’s Mental Health Awareness Week is in May, so I thought May would be a great month to explore mental health themed posts.
If we were having coffee I would say that this picture of Maddi pretty much sums it all up in terms of my week! I think I will call this photograph, “Can I look? Is it over yet?”
How was your week?
