February 4, 2021 – Consuming coffee forms a part of many people’s daily routine, chosen not only for its unique aroma and flavor but also for its ability to increase alertness and concentration, owing to its caffeine content. Research has suggested that the motives for choosing to consume a caffeinated drink include alertness, taste, mood, social reasons, perceived health benefits, and habit.
The effects of coffee or caffeine are often sought by those requiring alertness and increased concentration, such as during the working day or when driving. Caffeinated drinks can also be chosen by people if they are sleep-deprived or when adjusting to new sleep/wake cycles such as coping with jetlag.
For some people, the increase in alertness and concentration triggered by caffeine may also hinder restful sleep if coffee is consumed close to sleep time. Therefore, it can present a contrast of effects; it is often chosen to kickstart the morning and to reduce feelings of fatigue at key points during the day, however some also choose to limit coffee consumption close to sleep time. This report considers the impact of coffee and caffeine consumption on sleep, including in those whose circadian sleep/wake cycles are disrupted and those experiencing sleep deprivation.
