Did you realize that Summer officially starts on June 21st? Around here we have been having some exceptional weather that has allowed us to already visit the beach twice! Since it is New England, the weather can go from hot to cold in hours, so I have been taking advantage of the opportunity to head to one of many local beaches with my kids. With our several beach bags in tow, and my must-have energy shots, my family and I can enjoy a sunny day at the beach.
I don’t know if it is just me, but I feel like beach days can be very draining. I am not one to just sit and intentionally sun bathe for numerous reasons. Having to watch my three little ones like a hawk, reapply sunscreen hourly, and make sure my son isn’t flinging sand at other beach goers is a real chore. Without 5-hour ENERGY® Shots, I am toast! The intense sun can easily drain me of energy for the rest of the day without my secret little weapon.
To be honest, at first, 5-hour ENERGY® shots. didn’t taste that amazing to me. However, when they started making delicious flavors like grape, and orange, I was excited, and enjoyed drinking them. I like to call them my “secret weapon” for situations that call for my full, alert attention. They are small enough, smooth, and really do work. This product is perfect for my beach bag because I need energy at the shore that won’t give me heart palpitations.
You can find 5-hour ENERGY® shots at most stores across the US, but my favorite retailer to buy it at is CVS. They always have great sales, and I am there pretty much every week, so it’s certainly not out of my way! You can find these bottles of energy in the Health and Energy aisle at your local CVS Store! They were even buy one get one 50% when I purchased mine— what a great deal!
Reasons why 5-hour ENERGY® shots makes it into my beach bag verses a dehydrating iced coffee, or unhealthy energy drink:
- 5-hour ENERGY® shots are a dietary supplement that contains a blend of B-vitamins, amino acids, and essential nutrients.
- There’s zero sugar, carbs, or herbal stimulants!
- Is only a tiny four calories.
- Contain caffeine comparable to a cup of the leading premium coffee!
- An extra pair of flip flops: you never know when your flip flops might break..let’s just say it has happens to me a few times before!
- Sunglasses: Got to protect those baby blues from the sun’s harmful rays.
- Spray & cream based sunscreen: I love spray on sunscreen, but my kids are not a fan of getting their faces sprayed so we use cream for that.
- Beach towel: We all need one to dry off the salty sea.
- Snacks: I love to carry nuts, popcorn, or trail mix in my beach bag
- Lipgloss with SPF: your lips need sun protection too!! The beach is infamous for drying out my skin.
- Cornstarch based baby powder: Helps to get the sand off your legs, and feet!
- Water: A MUST for keeping hydrated at the beach! You should also include a bottle or two of 5-hour ENERGY® shots we love the orange and grape flavors!
- Extra clothes and undergarments: Having a extra pair of clothes, and underwear to change into is essential if you want to stop for ice cream, or getting a bite to eat after the beach.
- Magazine, or Book: For me, there is nothing like flipping through a current magazine when lounging on the beach. A book is even better on days when I visit alone!
