Wednesdays get a bad rap. Sure, they’re smack-dab in the middle of the week. We get it. You’re already tired from Monday and Tuesday, but you’ve still gotta get through Thursday and Friday to enjoy the weekend. Anduzzi’s feels your pain, and we wanted to do something about it. That’s why our Wednesday drink specials, featuring 2 for 1 margaritas, martinis, and wine are the perfect pick-me-up for midweek misery.
Looking for more strategies to overcome your Wednesday woes? Boost your spirits with a couple of these quick strategies to beat the blues:
The best way to get through a tough day is having something to look forward to… Why not make it a nice bottle of vino? Studies show that you’ll be in good company.
“Wednesday evening, at 6:53pm, is when most of us feel confident enough of making it through to the weekend to pull off our ties, kick off our shoes and pour ourselves a glass of wine,” according to Australian wine bottlers Cobevco.
Of course, you shouldn’t drink on an empty stomach. Anduzzi’s has ½ price appetizers, like Loaded Pub Chips, Grilled Jalapeno Bacon Kickers, and Hand Battered Cheese Curds to pair with your choice our Wednesday drink specials including 2 for 1 wine, martinis, and margaritas.
We’re not saying that you should put your head down on your desk and take a brief snooze cruise, but we are saying that you should set aside a few minutes when you walk in the door to get some shut-eye. You’ll want to time it properly, to avoid accidentally cutting into your bedtime sleep schedule.
To get the best nap, one that refreshes you without leaving your groggy when the alarm goes off, should only go into the first and second stages of sleep. Because our natural sleep cycle is around 90 minutes, keep your dozing limited to 20-30 minutes. You’ll wake up before you reach the deep levels of sleep, and still have all the benefits of resting.
Plus, you just shortened your Wednesday by a half-hour!
Sometimes, looking forward to a glass of wine isn’t enough to get you through the day. If you need to remember there’s a light at the end of the work week road, start up your signal fire, open up GroupMe, and get your buddies together for some weekend fun.
Not only are you taking the time to reconnect with the people who make you happiest, you’re also motivating yourself to get through your work. Weekend plans make it even more tempting to knock out all of your responsibilities, so that you can kick back and relax without the siren call of the office tempting you back into its cruel clutches.
Can’t decide what to do? Anduzzi’s has events happening all the time, from game day get-togethers to live music on the patio. Send our event calendar to your pals and let them vote on which location you’re going to meet up at for food, fun, and commiserating.
Wouldn’t it be nice if Wednesdays included massages, saunas, and those little cucumber slices over our eyes?
Unfortunately, that’s not the case.
Instead, we’re stuck dealing with packing school lunches, traffic jams during our commute, cold coffee in the lounge, and coworkers who won’t stop fiddling with the thermostat. Add that to the pile of “to-dos” slowly stacking in your inbox, and it’s the recipe for mental exhaustion.
There’s no time to go out for a spa day when the Davidson report is due on the boss’ desk in the morning, so you’ll have to bring the pampering to you. Whether it’s curling up with a good book, binging on your favorite shows, or just taking some time to enjoy your family, taking a few minutes for yourself can make the week seem a little easier.
Why wait until the weekend to throw yourself a little dance party?
Studies show that listening to music releases dopamine, decreases stress, and helps elevate your mood, especially while you’re driving. It’s the perfect way to pep yourself up when you feel the Wednesday blues creeping up.
This weekend, curate your perfect Wednesday motivational playlist… It needs to have songs that hype you up, get you excited, and keep your energy high. Maybe it’s DMX or Gregorian monk chants. We’re not judging.
However you choose to chill, stop by Anduzzi’s for Wednesday drink specials, food, and fun. Friday will be here in no time!
