I can really drag throughout my day. I’m usually on the go-go-go. I’m also lucky if I get 5-6 hours of sleep per night. I have a hard time falling to sleep most nights, and I’m up around 5:30 AM week days.
There is nothing worse than feeling zero energy when you have things to do.
As a writer, having no energy also affects my ability to blog. When I’m tired, I can’t focus. And when I can’t focus, I cannot formulate a thought, let alone write a post.
I do drink coffee. I drink coffee 2-3 times per day. Sometimes even a cup of coffee or tea is not enough to perk me up.
I do not like energy drinks. I have tried many over the years, and most of them either taste gross, don’t work or work too well that it makes me jittery. I’m 50-something years old and overweight. The LAST thing I want is to feel my heart racing from too much caffeine.
I was pitched not too long ago an energy drink called UPTIME. Like I said, I’m not a fan of energy drinks, but this one sounded different. Its made with natural caffeine (L-Theanine). It comes in a variety of flavors. There are sugar free versions (5 calories per can) and a version made with cane sugar (150 calories).
I figured I’d give it a try, especially considering that my focus has been really off lately. I’m currently taking classes to become a volunteer counselor, and they are done over ZOOM due to the virus. I’m finding it hard to not only stay awake, but also to focus on what the instructor is teaching us. I needed something, so why not try out UPTIME.
I was sent a variety of flavors. I was sent mostly sugar free (which was fine with me), and two of the drinks made with cane sugar.
Many energy drinks that I have tried over the years are just gross. They are so gross that I can’t even drink them. I was pleasantly surprised that all of the flavors of UPTIME that I tried are delicious. They do not taste like energy drinks at all. In fact, I would drink then all day long if I could (and if that wouldn’t be TOO much caffeine).
I wasn’t holding out much hope as far as energy was concerned. I figured that at most I’d get a little bit of a “buzz,” then I’d quickly “crash.” That was not the case with UPTIME. I didn’t experience any jitters, nor did I find myself “crashing.” The caffeine wore of slowly, so much so that I never noticed it.
A great benefit (for me anyway) when I drink UPTIME is that it helps me to really focus. I was shocked at how much I was able to focus and stay on task. I’m awake and alert when I am on my ZOOM class, and I am able to write blog posts without losing my train of thought. I actually drink an UPTIME earlier this morning and it’s been a few hours and I’m still feeling great.
With UPTIME, you can drink as little or as much as you want. If you think you just need a few sips, go ahead and put the screw lid back on and save the rest for later. Or you can drink the whole can (I usually do that). It’s up to you.
UPTIME tastes better cold, but you could drink it at room temperature too.
The great thing about doing reviews is that I get to learn about products that I might not otherwise learn about. In this case it’s UPTIME.
Sometimes products I am sent to review become personal favorites of mine, so I end up becoming a frequent customer. This is one of those cases. I think UPTIME is wonderful and I am planning on purchasing more. I just have to figure out which of the yummy flavors I want to buy (they come in cases of 12 bottles). I wish they offered a variety pack. That would be perfect.
UPTIME has tablets too, but I cannot comment on those since I have never tried them before.
