5-Hour Energy
When I went back to school 4 years ago, I knew I was in for a very challenging and tiring ride. I had two kids that were 2 and 4, a home and husband to also care for, a part time job and was going to school full time. My part time job was a graveyard shift in an ER and needless to say, I was tired all of the time. I don’t normally drink much caffeine or drink energy drinks, but sometimes I really needed that extra boost. When I did, I could drink half of a 5 hour energy and I was good to go! I never had the crash like I do with other caffeine either. Obviously I haven’t used 5 hour energy for quite some time as I was pregnant and am nursing right now, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t days that I couldn’t use it. My husband often uses them while driving to keep him alert and awake as well. It is available in a variety of flavors, including berry which is my favorite!
