How do you get through a mid-afternoon slump? I don't drink caffeine.

Also, how will you be spending this weekend? If you live in the USA, do you have a 3-day weekend?

munch on an apple, drink some water, go for a short, brisk walk, do some stretching.

probably some shopping, and maybe see a movie. I don't get one, but my kids do.

Take a walk and get some fresh air? Eat? But no, sugar and caffeine is what I actually do.

Is there a holiday this weekend? MLK? I don't know... I don't do anything right now and my husband doesn't get many holidays others do. :(


Oh yeah, Presidents' Day... never mind.

Have a snack! Apples, cheese, nuts...

I'll be spending Thursday/Friday with my boyfriend, and working Saturday/Sunday. I have an assignment due Sunday at midnight, so I'll be tweaking that, too. I don't live in the US, but I had a three-day weekend last weekend (well, technically a five-day weekend, since this week is my reading break).

I usually play a few games on my phone, something to get my brain moving in another direction so I can refocus.

I don't get a 3-day weekend. I have lunch plans on Saturday and a long run on Sunday morning. I'm also feeling like beer will be involved.

I walk around and talk to people.

Nothing. Probably watching Frasier and The X-Files on Netflix.

Sadly, I do not have a three-day weekend.

I get up from my desk, have a healthy snack, stretch. We also have desks that raise and lower, so I'll often raise mine up and work standing for a bit.

It's my weekend right now. I've relaxed and tonight need to get some laundry and cleaning done. Over the regular weekend, I'll be working.

It's really nice, especially since we don't get our own desks. We just all share the desks in the dispatch center. Even sitting, we all like our desks at different heights.

I'm actually having surgery on Monday, so it's not much of a holiday for me. :/

Light exercise, and maybe some fruit sugar or electrolytes.

I have a date on Friday, and I'm going to a roller derby bout with that same person and his friends on Saturday. Sunday and Monday I'll be with my kids. They have Monday off school. I haven't decided what we're going to do yet, but we'll either go on a bike ride to a fun place, or do some crafts at home.

Snack, a nap if I'm at home and feeling the slump, moving around helps a lot too.

I will probably clean my house, like I've been meaning to do for the last forever, maybe finally get my tree down? XD I also may have a couple friends over for RPing. No 3-day weekend for me. :(

NAP! I have a flexible life that lets me plan for that most days.

Otherwise jerky or protein laden food and a walk.

A joint.
Or going for a little walk to clear your head, wherever you are. Listen to some silly fun ridiculous music. Go buy yourself a treat if you can afford to.

Lol no I don't. I don't work Mondays because of school, but my workplace will be going as usual, probably much busier than usual since all the high schoolers will have the day off. SO glad I won't be there.
I'm going to be in class all day. University holiday? lol what is that

Take a walk away from your desk and have a cool glass of water.

I don't know specifically, but I'll be on vacation, so it'll be something fun.

You don't drink caffeine? Could you snort or inject it? :)

Light exercise, a healthy snack like fruits or veggies and water, getting fresh air.

Nothing special. Idk if it's a three day weekend here.

Sometimes drinking Emergen-C helps. Sometimes chewing gum helps. Listening to energetic music always helps.

Wow! My kid has a three-day weekend and I didn't even know it. We don't have plans, but maybe we'll come up with some now that we know...
