You know the feeling.
It’s 2:30 in the afternoon, and with a heavy belly-full of lunch, an afternoon of work looming ahead, and your morning coffee buzz worn off hours ago, you find yourself zoning out, imagining yourself curled up on your couch watching reruns of Portlandia. You need something to get through the rest of this day!
Usually when I find myself in the thick of an afternoon slump that just won’t pass, I find myself standing in line at Starbucks thinking “Ugh, do I really want another coffee…?” And sure enough, an hour later I’m so amped up on caffeine that I can barely focus on what I’m supposed to do next. But in those situations when work needs to be done and neurons aren’t firing, what’s a girl to do? As a bit of a health nut, the idea of five-hour energy drinks scare the crap out of me. Sure, I occasionally need an afternoon boost — but do I really need a bottle of liquid crack to get it?
I was super happy when I was introduced to Elebra, a healthy alternative that contains natural caffeine (from guarana seed extract) and vitamins to help give you a little kick but with the added bonus of improved concentration. Not only does it perk you up gently, but the buzz is long, focused, and there are no coffee jitters to be found.
Whether you’re still in school and need a little help fueling an all-nighter, or are a nine-to-fiver like me, there are days when you just need some extra oomph. Instead of reaching for something synthetic or bound to make you crash, try some “Productivity in a bottle.” You’ll not only get your work done, but you’ll feel good later, too. Now, what energy drink can deliver that?
