Quitting Coffee? 9 Healthy Ways to Start Your Day

An estimated 83 percent of adults drink coffee—most on a daily basis.

Whether you intend to kick the habit for good, or simply take a break, these suggestions will help you face the day without coffee.


  • Work Out When You Wake Up
    Put It into Practice: Keep yourself accountable by signing up for a class or working out with a friend.
  • Go Outside.
  • Eat Smart
  • Drink Up
    Drink at least eight ounces of water upon waking. If plain water is too boring, muddle refreshing ingredients like cucumber, mint, and lime and add ice water, or try hot water with lemon.
  • Try Tea Instead
    Switch to green tea, which contains about half the caffeine of coffee and boasts many health benefits.
    Brew a cup of tulsi, an antioxidant-rich herb that may be linked to favorable outcomes for stress and anxiety.
  • Consider Coffee Alternative
    Try chicory, a root with an earthy flavor that is dried, cut, and brewed like coffee (and has a similar mild laxative effect).
  • Turn on the Tunes
    Listening to upbeat music in the morning can help provide motivation to get moving. Researchers at the University of Missouri say it can also improve your mood.
  • Stretch Yourself
    Whether you incorporate just a few simple stretches into your morning routine, or commit to a dedicated yoga session, stretching first thing helps you wake up by getting your blood flowing and warming your muscles.
  • Master Morning Meditation
    Spend the time you’ll save every morning brewing or buying coffee wisely. In addition to helping reduce feelings of stress and anxiety, meditation helps you start the day in a calm, relaxed state that can better prepare you to deal with challenging situations.Even if you only have a cup a day, quitting coffee isn’t easy, especially if it’s a longtime habit. Caffeine withdrawal symptoms including headache, fatigue, irritability, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating are more likely to occur when you quit cold turkey, but these symptoms are transient, peaking around one or two days, and subsiding after a week or so. If you experience discomfort, consider tapering your intake slowly over a week; stay hydrated; and substitute green tea for coffee toward the end of the week.
