You feel anxious
Ruminating about an upcoming event or deadline can fuel your desire to grab a comforting mug of java. Yet, the National Institute of Mental Health recommends that people who suffer from anxiety avoid caffeine. Why? Too much coffee can actually worsen the effects of anxiety, either by robbing you of proper sleep or triggering your flight or fight response, according to Everyday Health.

European scientists found that certain compounds in coffee stimulate the secretion of stomach acid by your stomach cells, according to WebMD. Taking an over-counter medication like Tums can neutralize the acid short-term, but if you suspect coffee is making your stomach hurt, think about changing your coffee consumption habits. Find out the 7 things that happen to your body when you drink coffee every day.
