How to Keep Your Energy Up All January

The products that are giving us life.

If we're being completely honest, January is the worst month of the year. It's flu season, tax season, blizzard season, and the everything-will-crumble-from-here season. But if there's anything to look forward to, it's products we know will give us more energy to keep going. Influenster editors came together to share exactly what's giving them life this dark, cold, and dreary January. 

oxo barista

"I know I should have a really healthy answer for this question but the fact of the matter is that my energy secret is the same as it was in 2016—coffee! I have, however, given myself a coffee machine upgrade with the OXO On Barista Brain 9-Cup Coffee Maker. This machine is sleek and easy to use and makes coffee taste so much better than my old drip machine did."-Bethany Cantor, Content Director

garnier micellar water

"I've been using Garnier's micellar water every day for the past month and I can't believe there was a time when I didn't use it. It's cleansing, refreshing burst is just what I need to wake me up in the morning and get me ready to start my day. It's perfect for a gentle and quick cleanse in the A.M. and it's also ideal for a little pick-me-up after a morning run. "-Caitlin Miller, Site Editor


"Tropicana Orange juice is helping keep me energized this January. Aside from coffee, something about the sugariness and fruitiness is a great pick-me-up. How much of that is a placebo and how much it's the product itself is up for debate..."-Zack Handler, Videographer

swell bottle

"One of my resolutions this year was to increase my H2O intake so this was the perfect birthday gift from my amazing roommate! Not only does it keep my water at the perfect temp, it's also super lightweight and easy to carry around...and how CUTE is this design?! Love love love it!"-Carson Mehl, Senior Social Media Strategist

New York Sports Club

"Working out gets me going these days. I've been at NYSC for a year–it doesn't have fancy eucalyptus spray, but it does the job."-Sam White, Content Strategist

dunkin donuts coffee

"I didn't know what energy was until I tasted Dunkin' Donuts Colombian Coffee. It's my favorite coffee in the world, mainly because it doesn't give a gross aftertaste. Seriously, I drink this stuff black and it still tastes like a dream."-Claire Rodgers, Junior Editor
