You’ve seen the hump day commercial.

Last week someone told me the reason he likes the hump day commercial is it not only makes him laugh, it also helps him get over hump day.

I like the hump day commercial too. It definitely makes me grin and instantly puts me in a good mood (how could a talking camel NOT put you in a good mood). But I wouldn’t go so far as to say it helps me get over hump day.

Do you need more than a talking camel to get over hump day? Try these ideas…

5 Ways to Get Over Hump Day


Often we find ourselves dragging by mid-week because we haven’t done anything physical. Recharge your batteries by going for a walk, taking a jog, practicing yoga, doing strength training, or simply getting out in the sun. Better yet, stay recharged by making exercise a regular habit.


Sometimes hump day is made extra difficult because of all the clutter in our lives. Clean up your workspace. Throw away anything you don’t need. De-clutter your life and hump day will feel more like a bump than a mountain.


On Wednesdays I take 10-15 minutes to reexamine my priorities for the week. Refocusing on what matters most creates instant energy!


Kathy and I protect our Wednesday evenings. We don’t plan anything special; in fact, we don’t plan anything. We hang out, read, and usually watch a favorite TV show. Relaxing together gives us something to look forward to during the week and helps us get re-energized for the rest of the week.


This is my favorite! Ever since I reengaged with my dreams, I rarely struggled with hump day. I absolutely love the journey I am traveling as an entrepreneur and motivational speaker, and one of the benefits is that I love what I do. When you love what you do…there are no hump days!

BTW…if you’re interested in learning how to become a motivational speaker, a business speaker, or a trainer, claim your spot at the Speak It Forward Boot Camp. I guarantee you’ll learn everything you need to know to launch your speaking business.
