December can be a tough time of the year. The weather makes me want to sleep for days, but like everyone else, I've got to keep working hard before taking it easy during the Holidays!\nThe period before Christmas is a time to finish everything on your to-do list, whether you're working or studying- cramming for finals, writing essays or other assignments before the Holidays, so it's normal to need a little kick of energy here and there while trying to get everything together!\nWhile you probably know that conventional energy drinks are pretty bad for you, as they contain a ton of sugar and artificial ingredients, did you know that GURU offers beverages that are actually a healthy option?\n[embed]https://www.instagram.com/p/BNuoslLjhAZ/?taken-by=guruenergydrink[/embed]\nFounded in Montreal in 1999, GURU was the first company in the world to introduce all-natural energy drinks. Made with organic ingredients, such as Panax ginseng and guarana, and are actually a healthy alternative to mass-market energy drinks, not to mention the fact that they taste great.\nGURU's main energizing ingredient is green tea, which is caffeinated (but naturally so you don’t get the jitters) and loaded with nutrients that improve brain function. It also contains echinacea, which can be great for your immune system! And on top of being good for your body, you also don't get the crash normally associated with these beverages.\nAside from the Original GURU, which you've probably seen and maybe even tasted, they also introduced a cool new product this year: GURU Energy Water.\nvia @guruenergydrink\nGURU Energy Water is sparkling water infused with green tea, and comes in three yummy flavours: grapefruit, lime, and my personal favourite: pomegranate. It's the ultimate go-to if you're looking to feel energized while still managing to tone down your sugar intake... it even won Best Beverage of 2016 by Vegan Health & Fitness Magazine!\nCertified organic and non-GMO, GURU figured out how to help you get through those times you need to be super focused, like during finals, or when driving long distances, without compromising your health.\nvia @guruenergydrink\nGURU's beverages offer a natural and healthy way to improve alertness, and feel energized, which, I'm sure you agree, can come in handy sometimes (uh, all the time).\nWhen you need a pick-me-up, grab a GURU, and in the meantime, follow them on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, or check out their website to keep up with their latest.
