Wednesday can feel like the toughest day of the week to get through. It's the no-man's land of the work week: the days since Monday have been dragging, and Friday still seems so far away. It's easy to feel drained and depleted.
The constant demands of work, family, and daily life can be exhausting on a mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical level. All of us are subject to the mid-week burnout sometimes. Luckily, we've come across plenty of tips we'd like to share to help you recharge and get through those Wednesdays feeling energized.
This week’s pick-me-up tip is simple:
- Just breathe.
- Take a moment in the middle of your day to close your eyes, take a deep breath, and slowly exhale.
- Focus on your breath. Allow your thoughts to wander and dissipate.
- Feel your body relax.
- Open your eyes.
Has it been five minutes, or only a few seconds? It’s easy to get lost when you’re letting go of all the tension you may not have even realized you’ve been carrying with you all day.
