Berocca Boost: the elixir of mid-life
You know you're middle-aged when you get excited about a new vitamin drink. But this ain't no ordinary supplement, this is Berocca Boost with guarana. The elixir of mid-life. Nobody told me I'd feel so tired. That I'd be working twice as hard in my forties as in my thirties, for the same amount of money. That I'd enjoy drinking coffee and going to bed early. It's not very radical but I'm looking forward to tomorrow's strike day just so that I can have a lie-in.
Guarana is a natural energiser I first encountered in the rave-tastic early nineties, when I was young enough to party every night and still manage to sit upright at my desk the following morning. These days, I limit myself to two nights out a week, and one of those is a pilates class.
Berocca with guarana, more exciting than Marni for H&M. Well, almost.
How do you keep going? Do you have any energy-giving secrets you'd like to share?
