15 Coffee Mugs That Will Make Your Mornings a Whole Lot Better
You may think that coffee (or tea) is going to be your pick-me-up in the morning—but did you know that the cup you put your beverage of choice in is just as important?
Studies show that touching certain objects (like, for example, a beloved mug) can be great for stimulating your brain and making you feel more productive and recharged in the morning. In other words, an awesome coffee cup can make a huge difference in how you feel and operate.
Plus, well, it'll make you look cool at the office.
