Take next Wednesday off

🔌 Today’s tip: Recharge with a random mid-week mini-vacation.

You know what’s even better than a three-day weekend? A two-day workweek. To maximize the re-energizing power of a day off, as the Forge writer Annaliese Griffin has argued in Quartz, take it smack in the middle of the workweek. This turns a five-day slog into two-day chunks buffered by free time.

If you can’t take a day off, think of a treat you usually save for the weekend — a favorite takeout meal, an indulgently long bath — and make it happen on a Wednesday. You can always use a mid-week boost.
