It’s HERE! The day we’ve been waiting for all week, the day that will free us from obligations and lead us into the weekend. It’s Friday! and FRIDAY, I THINK I LOVE YOU. We sing songs about it, write movies about it, use hashtags about it, there are even clothes designed for it – heck, there’s even a restaurant chain named after it, But why exactly do we all love Fridays so much? I am sure we all love this magical day for our own reasons, but today I want to share with you why I love FRIDAYS.
IT ANTICIPATES SOMETHING....
We all live for that feeling of anticipation? It really puts us in such a state of mind that we feel fresh, young and ready to conquer anything, even if we are not. Even if the anticipation is something so simple as sleeping in over the weekend, your body reacts to that sense of anticipation. So on Fridays anticipate something great.
ITS THE DAY WHEN THINGS END AND GOOD THINGS START
Beyond anticipation of the weekend, you can look back at your week, losen your shirt, kick off your heels and see how good or bad you did. Breathe in, breathe out and look ahead to a couple of days of no work and the days being about you and the important people in your life. Friday is the best possible metaphor of life: it’s the actual moment when you look back just to look ahead.
BAD THINGS DON'T HAPPEN ON FRIDAYS
Not true of course, but that’s how I like to thinks about it. Your mind lets go of things that are lingering in your head and you tend to focus more and more on the weekend to come. You feel invincible, unstoppable, adventurous and more relaxed. When something bad happens on a Friday you actually tend to handle it a lot better knowing the weekend is here. At least I do anyways.
Remember the time that the phrase “Casual Fridays” was non existent? We have come a long way from the era of stuffy work clothes. Casual Fridays are sort of a release, a way to ease ourselves into our casual weekend style. One of my favourite Casual Friday styles is this cotton tee from Hello Lovely Clothing Co. Can't think of a better way to show how much you love Fridays. This shirt is made out of the softest cotton and I especially love the lace detail on the back. Style it with a pair of skinny jeans for a casual look or wear it into the night paired with a pretty skirt, either way that Friday feeling will be on display for everyone to appreciate. FRIDAY, I THINK I LOVE YOU!!!
I EAT DIFFERENTLY
This is so true. Most people usually eat well and take good care of themselves…from Monday to Thursday, but Friday? That’s “take-out day”. It’s the day we don’t care too much about fruit at the office or watching the amount of carbs we eat. On Fridays I tend to treat myself to a special coffee and my favourite take out.
THE DAY IS SHORTER
Have you ever felt that coming home from a trip is faster? It’s because going back to that place you love and feel comfortable is what weekends are usually about. You might even work more than you did on a Thursday, but you work faster, harder and more efficiently because you just want to be done…and move on to the weekend, thus giving you the impression that the day is shorter.
MUSIC HIGH ON FRIDAYS.
For me It’s kind of a natural thing, like french fries and ketchup. Fridays go with music. When possible, I just turn the volume up and play a few songs on my playlist and magic happens: on a Friday, nobody will complain. Nobody dare…because Fridays are made for music.
It doesn’t matter if you have a routine all planned up for your Fridays and you repeat it each Friday, or if you just want an original plan for each Friday. You know for a fact that FRIDAY is the one day that you’re waiting for, the day when your home is not where you go, but where you end up.
