1. Change Your Environment

Are you not tired of just sitting at your same desk watching the same people with the same environment

A change of scenery can do wonders for lifting your mood. 

Consider working from a different location, like a coffee shop or a park, to add some variety to your midweek routine.

2. Take a Midweek Adventure

Plan a midweek adventure or outing to break the monotony. Visit a nearby museum, go for a hike, or try a new restaurant for lunch.

3. Set aside "Me" Time

During the mid-week, do something you enjoy. 

It could involve doing something creative, reading a book, painting, or taking a bubble bath. 

Set self-care as a top priority to rejuvenate.

4. Listen to your favorite playlist

Nothing around you seems to be amusing enough, therefore you are depressed. You should then turn the music up loud.

Listen to your favorite song for 15 minutes while you’re taking a break from what you’re doing. 

Ignore everything happening around you for a while and lose yourself in the calming effects of music. 

You can always sing along, but remember that there are people around. Avoid appearing in a humorous Vine video.

5. Treat yourself

Who said treats are just for holidays? Grab your phone and order a pizza with your preferred topping if you’re even the smallest bit sad that the weekend isn’t here yet. 

How will this help? 

Firstly it is solely made to cure your cravings and your mood. 

Secondly you will be reminded of how you ordered it and in what circumstances which will make you laugh someday. 

Now it’s enough for the next day to go fresh and work.

6. Start following a midweek routine

Create a weekly routine so as to make your day a bit easy. Starting from Monday to the weekends. Let’s make a routine here:


Have a fresh start. Provide yourself a good treat. Make plans for the rest of the days.


Dedicate yourself to some physical activities. Practice breathing for 15b mins. Take a walk outside the office.


Wednesday is the ideal day to break up the routine of the workweek. Think of working from a different place, such a quiet cafe or a park.

Plan a midweek excursion, such as going on a local nature trail exploration or taking up a brand-new pastime.


Start the day by expressing gratitude. 

Write down three things you’re grateful for in your life or work

Take breaks to chat with colleagues, creating a positive and supportive work environment.


Make a weekend plan that includes activities you love, ensuring you have something to look forward to.

Attend social events like book club, have good food.


Utilize the weekend to relax and unwind. Spend time with loved ones, pursue hobbies, or simply enjoy some quiet time alone. 

Prepare a positive intention or goal for the upcoming week, setting the stage for a productive start on Monday.

7. Be creative

In these circumstances, projecting your emotions in the most original way you can always helps. If you’re an artist, for instance, paint your emotions on a canvas. 

Then write about it if you’re a writer. Since you’re depressed, you might as well gain from it. Doing something is always preferable to sitting around worrying.

8. LOL(Laugh Out Loud)

You release Endorphins or the Happy Hormones  when you laugh, which reduces depression rates, strengthens our social bonds and eases mental and emotional stress.

So, while eating lunch, listen to comedy playlists, crack a joke with a coworker, or watch a hilarious video on social media.

I prefer watching Sarabhai V/s Sarabhai. Half of the Indians are fond of this television series.

9. Adopt an uplifting mantra

Even though practicing an optimistic outlook won’t make your depression go away, it can assist with midweek blues and keep you focused when unfavorable situations arise. 

Craft a positive mantra which you can say to yourself repeatedly which will help to motivate you throughout the day.

10. Complete your most hated task

Everybody has that one task on their to-do list that they detest or are least enthusiastic about beginning. 

You should actually start by completing this task. 

You’ll feel more at ease and other activities will appear less intimidating once you get this out of the way.

Final Thoughts

I reassure you  that this feeling will pass and you will feel more rejuvenated from midweek blues. 

Even you can get over this midweek low by embracing positivism, seeking out joy, and taking care of yourself.

Every Wednesday that goes by will make you stronger and better and will help you to have more abilities to handle any difficulties that may arise. 

Therefore take a deep breath, maintain my composure, and keep going since you know that better times are coming soon!
