Five Ways to Make Your Friday Even Better

Posted on

Happy Friday!  Our favorite day of the week is finally upon us.  Heading into this last work day of the week, we wanted to provide you with a few ways to make your day even more fantastic!

Stretch
According to WebMD, stretching can help improve your circulation and flexibility, and may help ease the tight muscles that come with stress.  Take a minute or two throughout the day to get up, walk around, and loosen up those muscles!  Not sure what to do?  An example can be found here.

Eat Citrus
It’s not a secret that we here at MHACF love our oranges and citrus!  You can catch us every fourth Friday of the month during citrus season hitting the streets with our oranges, spreading smiles and cheer. Did you know that oranges contain choline, which is an important nutrient found in oranges that helps with sleep, muscle movement, learning and memory?  Who doesn’t need help with that on a Friday after a long week?

Pour Extra Creamer in Your Coffee
Who needs a reason why?  It’s Friday, you deserve it!

Go For a Walk
Not a coffee drinker?  How about a walk instead?  It has been proven that a short walk can boost your circulation and wake up the mind which can help beat that afternoon sluggish feeling.

Say Thank You
Practicing gratitude is a great way to boost your positive mental health, increase feelings of happiness, makes us healthier, and can boost our career, along with many more benefits!  Happierhuman.com created a list of 31 benefits of practicing gratitude, which you can read here.
