You’re well beyond the Monday blues, leaped over the work-week hump, and can now enter Thursday, the weekly launch of the pre-weekend paradise. While Friday receives all the benefits of weekend love, often added into the Saturday and Sunday mix, it’s Thursday that is the true work horse, the humble Clark Kent of our weekly Krypton. Thursday represents more than just another day, but rather an opportunity to shine, and establish the day as the new weekly pinnacle, the day of triumph for your mind, body, and soul.
HAPPINESS AND POST HUMP DAY OPTIMISM
The first half of the week is complete, and you’ve worked your way through the buildup and clutter. The weekend is now on the horizon, and you can officially start planning for it. Eating healthy and going to the gym results in a healthy body, so why should your mind be left out of the equation. The more excited you are for the weekend, the happier you become. As long as you can stay focused and enjoy the anticipation, your work will benefit from your positive energy.
CLEAN UP FOR FRIDAY FLEXIBILITY
By the time Friday comes, everyone is already thinking about their weekend plans. This allows Thursday to be your most productive, task-accomplishing day. The last thing you want for your high-spirited Friday is to have loads of emails and projects to get done, not to mention the unexpected fires you might be forced to put out too. By hustling the most on Thursday, you are setting yourself up for a more flexible, manageable, and smooth Friday.
TRY SOMETHING NEW ON THURSDAYS
Individuals grow, develop, and evolve by trying and doing new things, or making adjustments to the routine in our lives. Make Thursday the point in every week that you try something new, even if it’s a simple adjustment like drinking more water or writing one “thank you” email. Try standing instead of sitting at your desk, eat a new food for lunch, take a short break to listen to music or watch a video. For personal gains or business ones, adding new pieces to your life’s puzzle will result in more creativity and a better understanding of your interests, habits, and passions.
CREATE YOUR OWN FUN AND CELEBRATE A SUCCESSFUL DAY
After you’ve tried something new, crossed off most of your to-do list, and started thinking about weekend plans, you deserve to celebrate a successful Thursday! Celebrate with friends, celebrate with some alone time, celebrate with colleagues. However you’d like to give yourself a pat on the back is well deserved. Make a conscious decision to turn off email alerts for the night, and enjoy the rest of your day knowing that Friday, Saturday, and Sunday are coming up next.
