Forcing yourself to get out of bed in the morning is the worst. It’s one thing if you get to sleep in and wake up when you want to, but having to leave the warm and cozy sanctuary that is your bed each morning is so difficult. For so many of us, this transition is only possible through the Holy Grail that is an essential cup of coffee. It goes without saying that the first sip of the morning is basically the same thing as falling in love, or knowing true peace and harmony exists, or having dinner with Oprah Winfrey or something. If you’ve ever wondered why that first sip brings you so much joy, science and the Gilmore girls have the answer you’re looking for.
