Julius is now 17 months old and so full of energy, sometimes I ask myself how I manage to keep up with him. During the long, hot days of summer we like to head outdoors to enjoy the day, but it can get very hard when you only had 4-5 hours of sleep the night before. Julius still wakes up two times a night to ask for his bottle and will sometimes make one of those times a playtime which can last up to an hour. It's not easy to be bright eyed and bushy tailed when you rarely get any sleep, but this girl here has some tricks up her sleeve to be able to keep up with the little energy monster and get our summer on. It's all about packing the right items for the day, and that includes a few bottles of 5-hour ENERGY® shots for myself.
Whenever we head out I always pack his backpack full of small toys, snacks and juices. I've learned that my son will never be as hungry or thirsty as the minute we head out the door. I usually take a bottle of 5-Hour ENERGY® shots around mid-day. This will give me an energy boost right around the time that lack of sleep starts to kick in. 5-Hour ENERGY® shots are a dietary supplement that contain a blend of B-vitamins, amino acids, and essential nutrients. With only 4 calories, zero sugar, carbs, or herbal stimulants, I don't ever worry about taking them.
Having a small child and going out is not easy. My arms are always full of his bag, my purse, his bottle and his stroller. Meanwhile he runs around creating a mess as he goes. Even sitting down to a cup of coffee means having to make sure he doesn't knock down the whole store.
Going outside is always the best option so he can release all that energy safely. How I wish I could bottle some of that for myself! Oh wait, 5-Hour ENERGY® shots already did! I normally only take one 5-Hour ENERGY® shot per day on the days I really need it, even when I am at home. But if I did not take one at mid-day then I will take it after we've had a late lunch. Something about food makes me really sleepy on a hot summer day, and when I have a list full of errands left to do, I need that energy.
Almost all of my outings includes a stop at Walgreens and this is where I purchase my 5-Hour ENERGY® shots. You can find them by the register and you will almost always find them on sale. I love finding new flavors and limited edition bottles.
5-Hour ENERGY® shots are part of my summer days and with the variety of flavors I never get bored. When I am home they keep me going on those long school and work days, and when I go out they literally save my life.
Small enough to pack anywhere and as safe as having a cup of coffee, 5-Hour ENERGY® shots are my secret for keeping going and staying sane on those busy summer days.
