We’ve all see the commercial, right? Clever to have the camel walking through the office, loving the fact that Wednesday is also called ‘Hump Day.’
Ever made it to the middle of the week and things just drag? Either things at work take forever, everything feels like it’s going wrong or the clock doesn’t seem to change time AT ALL.
It’s the worst when that happens! How do you get over it? How do you get past the actual hump of Hump Day?
What usually really helps me is a good run on a new trail with a new friend, or trying a new activity. Things I’ve done lately to mix things up are kayak, roller blade (yes, yes…the 90’s are comin’ back), paddle board, rock climb and play tag. Tag. Seriously-kids don’t have a hard time realizing that exercise can be (and should be) fun.
BUT what do you do when you’re in a meeting or at work and don’t have hours to spend on new adventures? Well, when I’m at work and I don’t have of time for a huge break, these are my go-to things that help boost my energy and help me make it through one more day at the desk. It literally takes 5 minutes. One of the key things is to disconnect from any/all electronics. Difficult and totally possible! Take a friend, don’t take your phone. Spend 5 minutes NOT looking at any kind of screen – definitely a challenge everyone should take. Harmless, easy and fun 🙂
Now get out there and punch today in the face!
