Fridays are exciting because they mean you survived another week and you get two days to rest. Sometimes I get in that weekend mindset a little too early and I’m not as productive as I could be on Fridays. To save you from making the same mistakes, I’ll share some of my best tips for making it through Friday.
Reflect on the week
On Fridays, I like to look back on the week to see what I accomplished. During this time, I like to see what I did and what I need to do to make sure that everything is how it should be.
Stay on top of your to do list
I know it might seem easy to push things to the side, but I promise getting them done now instead of waiting until Monday will set you up for a much better week. The busier you stay the faster the day goes by which makes the weekend right around the corner.
Even though it’s Friday you can still prepare and set up your calendar for the upcoming week. This helps set up the upcoming days and gets you in the mindset to have another successful week.
You made it through another week! Congrats! Friday (and the rest of the weekend) is the perfect time to treat yourself for all the hard work you did. Either grab something fun for lunch or try a new coffee order.
Help others have an amazing Friday
Whether it’s thanking a coworker for their help or just reminding people how exciting Fridays are helping others have a good day will make yours ten times better.
In school I was always excited for Friday, but it wasn’t until I secured a nine-to-five job that Fridays became as exciting for me as they are now. While Fridays can be great, make sure you stay on top of the work that needs to be done.
