Tired moms know… Wait. Maybe I should just say moms because being tired, out-of-energy, and on lock fora 24/7 schedule with tons of interruptions is part of the parenting commitment. When you’ve been up since 6:00AM and your kids haven’t napped, but what to go full throttle at the park, in the grocery store, and can’t make it back into the house without igniting a mini riot, there’s a moment in your after when you need a pick me up. Not just to keep your kids alive, but to avoid being ambushed and defeated. You need a 5-hour ENERGY®. Here’s where I’m losing a few of you because energy shots aren’t your thing, but you haven’t tried their latest campaign – mixer recipes!
First, let me introduce or remind you what’s great about 5-hour ENERGY® and how it helps give you the burst of energy you so desperately need. If you need hours of energy and alertness, this is shot full of dietary supplements is for you. Here’s why 5-hour ENERGY® is so awesome:
· Contain a blend of B-vitamins, amino acids, and essential nutrients
· Helps people feel alert and energized for hours
· Zero sugar, zero carbs, zero herbal stimulants and 4 calories!
· Caffeine in a 5-hour ENERGY® shot is comparable to a cup of the leading premium coffee
Did you see that? Instead of burning your mouth on a hot cup of coffee that cost you $7, grab an energy shot! While 5-hour ENERGY® shots are a great way to increase energy, you need to be fully aware of all the warnings. DO NOT consume more than 2 5-hour ENERGY® shots in a single day. Never drink two back-to-back and consider drinking 1/2-shot for moderate energy throughout the day. It’s not an energy drink intended to be mixed with alcohol. It is not intended to be consumed by children, pregnany women, or people with medical conditions. You’ll get your second wind to take on the rest of your day without needing a nap, but 5-hour ENERGY® does not increase physical performance, dexterity, or endurance.
Now that you’re ready to consume this energy shots responsibly, I wanted to share with you the perks of using a 5-hour ENERGY® mixer. A shot on it’s own is a quick swig and you can continue with your day. For some it may be too strong, so I wanted to share with you some real mommy mixers:
1) Fruit Punch with Berry 5-hour ENERGY®
2) Decaffienated Tea with Pomegranate 5-hour ENERGY®
3) Lemon Infused Water with Pink Lemonade 5-hour ENERGY®
The tastiest was something that all parents can go for in the fridge. Take an Original Berry 5-hour ENERGY® energy shot and poor it directly into a sippy cup, err cup, with your children’s fruit juice (replace with any brand of pouched juice, boxed juice, juiciest of juices, or something fresh-squeezes – if you’re THAT parent.) Trust me it’s the easiest way to get the energy shot down and it’s the perfect mix of sweet and bold berry flavor.
