I am slowly eliminating caffeine from my diet-- it's a big trigger. My biggest piece of advice is that if you are drinking more than a cup of coffee a day (or more than one soda a day), that you slowly wean yourself off. I have been at no more than 1 cup a day for a week, and next week I'm moving to 1 cup of black tea a day. After that, I'll *hopefully* be down to nothing stronger than green tea. Depending on how much caffeine you are used to (and for me it was lots! my husband and I actually met while working in a coffee shop), it can take a WHILE to get your energy back. But weaning yourself off can really really help with both the headaches and tiredness. A little bit of yoga in the morning is a good pick me up-- and would help with the stressful job too!
Exercise = Endorphins. Endorphins make you happy!
Just because you don't see results after a day or even a week, don't give up. You may not see changes, but every smart choice you make is affecting you in ways you'd never imagine. (The same is true for every bad choice! Be careful.)
