Avoid too much caffeine

Healthier versions of energy drinks are able to give you a jolt without relying heavily on caffeine. Many of the mainstream energy drinks, however, are loaded with caffeine, which can take a toll on your body. Time states that energy drinks have more caffeine than coffee, tea, and soda, with some brands containing anywhere from 154 milligrams in a 16-ounce can to 505 milligrams in a 24-ounce can. To compare, Livestrong recommends keeping your caffeine intake to less than 200 milligrams a day, meaning a 24-ounce can will easily put you above the recommended daily amount.

Consuming too much caffeine can cause you to feel nervous, anxious, and jittery, and has been linked to high blood pressure. In serious cases, it can do much worse than that. Business Insider warns that drinking too much caffeine can lead to hallucinations, addiction, stomach ulcers, cardiac arrest, a coma, or in severe cases, death.
