You only need to look at a jar of coffee to perk you up.



If you are becoming worried that your coffee habit is getting too expensive. Don’t worry because just looking at a jar of coffee can apparently give you a pick me up and you don’t even need to have a sip.

Imagining a hot cup of coffee is thought to boost our energy levels, and raise our heart rates and make our thinking sharper.

Researchers gave 400 participants an article to read about tea or coffee. They were then asked how excited, active, worn out or drowsy they felt. Those people with coffee on their mind were more likely to be alert they also performed better in tests that measured focused thinking.

The report said that because many of us are caffeinated so often we internalise the association between coffee and getting moving. Which means just looking at a jar of coffee is enough to get us moving without drinking anything.
