FGF: Feel-Good Friday
“I feel good, today
can't nobody bring me down
I just got paid, and I think I'm gonna hit the town”
We’ve had this jam in our head all week long – check out the music video from Thomas Rhett here. Since we’re feeling good, we want you to as well! We’ve put together five feel-good tips and stories sure to kick your weekend off right.
Watch Channing Tatum Throw Down in “Lip Sync Battle”
We highly suggest taking a minute to watch THE Channing Tatum “run the world” in the popular show “Lip Sync Battle” hosted by LL Cool J. We promise, you won’t be disappointed!
Take a Walk Without Your Phone
Get some fresh air outdoors to rouse your senses and clear your mind. The light exercise break will also reduce momentary stress and help to re-energize your mind.
Enjoy a Banana
Or sliced avocado, or half of a baked potato. There’s evidence that people who have lower copper intake (these foods are rich in this vital mineral) are more likely to have a hard time falling asleep at night and feel less rested each morning.
Search For a New Jam or Playlist
Boost your spirits by finding a new upbeat anthem to listen to this week. Recent research at the University of Missouri discovered that individuals can successfully try to be happier, especially when cheery music aids the process.

Spend Time Working on Something That’s Meaningful to You
Spend some downtime engaging in a personal project or hobby. Consider picking up a pencil if you enjoyed drawing in the past or pulling the trigger and signing up for a pottery class or basketball league.
