3 Delicious Non-Coffee Drinks to Keep You Alert at Work

Did you know that fruits can actually wake you up?

In times like this where we have to stay awake for online classes, virtual meetings, and late-night work, coffee helps a ton. The caffeine not only tastes good, but it also keeps us awake and energized, ready to take on our workload. But what if you are a non-coffee drinker?

There can be various reasons that make people shy away from coffee.
