A Coffee Break That Can Improve Your Long-Term Memory and Health
Medical research by Johns Hopkins University in a 12Jan2014 article entitled: Caffeine has positive effect on memory, suggests that drinking a cup of coffee after processing new information can actually improve your long-term memory and retention ability in your brain. Also, the cup of smooth, freshly brewed coffee can also help you to relax and allow the conscious mind to transfer the new information or knowledge to the permanent mind and establish permanent links to this information, where the new material is more readily available to be accessed. It is encouraged that an individual take coffee breaks after a study period.
I have listed additional benefits of coffee at the end of this article. If an individual wanted to boost their regular workout program, the individual just has to drink a cup of coffee. The cup of coffee kicks your metabolism into hyper-drive, where one consumes the highest level of calories. Having a cup of coffee provides both a physical and a mental benefit for health and fitness.
There is one more factor to help an individual improve their learning capabilities, and this has to do with Circadian Rhythms. Online education programs are becoming more popular for higher learning. With this fact, taking advantage of short study periods and finding your maximum time to retain information is critical. For more information on Circadian Rhythms, please refer to: Golfer’s Circadian Rhythm for a Virtual Golf Swing. Even though this is an article about the sport of golf, the learning process can be applied to any subject matter.
Benefits of Coffee for your Health and Fitness
Coffee is your best partner to include in your health and workout routine. Besides boosting your workout routine by 12 percent, coffee also has the following benefits of:
- Reduces post-workout discomfort, up to 48 percent.
- Lowers your risk of Type-2 Diabetes by nine percent. Exercise increases this by 32 percent.
- Lowers your risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease by 60 percent.
- Lowers your risk of heart disease.
- Prevents cavities.
- Protects you against melanoma. This is very important for the golfer, along with wearing sunscreen. Keep a tube of sunscreen in your golf bag and apply it at least twice during the round, at the start and at the turn.
- Improves the psychoactive or cognitive function of the brain.
- Blocks the inhibitors of neurotransmitters in the brain that improve the rate of retention. This is a part of Circadian Rhythm that governs how we learn and retain information.
- Studies show that coffee increases the body’s ability to burn fat and boost the metabolic rate by 12 percent.
- Coffee contains the nutrients: Riboflavin, Pantothenic Acid, Manganese, Potassium, Magnesium, and Niacin. If you develop pain in your legs, potassium can help alleviate this discomfort.
- Coffee can lower your risk of Liver and colorectal cancer by 40 percent. Liver and colon cancer are the third and fourth causes of cancer deaths.
- Coffee can lower your risk of stroke by 20 percent.
- Coffee has more antioxidants than fruits and vegetables combined.
- Coffee can extend your life expectancy by 10 percent: Science Confirms: The More Coffee You Drink, The Longer You Will Live!
- Coffee helps an individual process and access information learned. Take breaks after learning or studying periods.
Boosting Your Health with a CASPER Home Gym
If you want to improve your health and fitness, set up a home gym. The more convenient your gym is, the more likely that you will develop a workout routine. Before I give you all of the advantages of a health and fitness routine, let me provide you with an incentive to either start and/or maintain an exercise regimen.
First, there is a 600 percent on your return, based on money and time that you invest in your health and fitness. That means for every dollar you spend on equipment and time working out, you receive six- dollars back is health care savings in medical costs and insurance and independence of life.
Second benefit is the biggest incentive. What would be the logic in spending 30-plus years working doing what you have to do, then retire and not be able to do what you want to do. Consider your home gym workout program and time spent working out like your 401(k) or IRA. When you get over 50, you will need to draw on your health and fitness wealth. I’m 60, and I’m testimonial to this philosophy. This photo was taken on January 12, 2018, when I was 59 years old.
SR925-MET Diet Program and CASPER Workout Program, a Home Gym with Minimum Cost to You and Maximum Gains
I have followed two essential programs; one for 35 years, the CASPER Home Gym Workout Program; and for the last four years, the SR925 Diet Program. The breakdown on your health and fitness is not just exercise, but 80 percent based on your diet and 20 percent based on your exercise routine.
The following links below will provide the information on both of these programs, but diet is the lions share of your health and fitness that needs the attention. Before I retired, I had difficulty losing 40 pounds that I gained while I was suffering from a hip problem called Perthes.
I tried every diet on the market and the majority of these diet programs didn’t work. Any success that I did have was short-term. I lost more battles than I won, until I started studying the Circadian Rhythm of the digestive system and how certain foods were processed by the body.
This research became the basis for SR925 Diet Program, where I lost six inches in my waist in three months. After nine months on the SR925 Diet Program, I lost an additional two-and-a-half inches, for a total of eight-and-a-half inches (8-1/2 inches). I went from a 37.5 inch waist down to a 29 inch waist, where I’m at now. This eight-and-a-half inches equates to 48 pounds of weight that I lost and have kept off since December of 2014.
The SR925 Diet Program is based more on when you eat than what you eat. You can actually turn your body into a calorie-burning juggernaut with simple principles of time and schedule; and better than that, both my diet plan and fitness program are combined in the following links below for more details and application.

Operation DOG TAG
Sports, such as golf, along with fitness and an exercise regimen that includes yoga, has been proven to be a great Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for trauma victims. Veterans and those who have experienced a traumatic situation where the mind has been traumatized and disrupted can use golf and yoga to help re-establish connection and pathways in the brain. Golf also provides an excellent opportunity for trauma victims to reconnect in a social setting to develop a dialogue without the pressures of clinical visits.
