Instead of wearing jeans for Casual Friday, ask employees to wear their workout clothes.  Load the day with a morning yoga class in the conference room, a salad-style potluck, and at least one walking meeting to bring happiness and health to work.

Awesome Hanna! I'm also in the process of pitching this to the corporate offices at Chipotle. Let me know how it's received and--if all goes well--implemented. How big is your company? So glad you think the idea has potential!

I love the idea of a "Team Turn Up". The benefit is tri-fold: 1) directly beats the 3:00 lull, 2) creates community and fun, and 3) replaces a healthy snack with what's usually an unhealthy habit. Great suggestion!

Great suggestion Rebecca! How awesome that you're planning to incorporate Feel Good Friday with your staff. I'd love to hear more about your organization and implementation plan if you're willing to share:

1. Could you describe your organization? E.g. how many employees in the office, how many employees will participate in Feel Good Friday, what type of attire is worn on a typical day?
2. Could you describe your plan for implementation? E.g. are you going to announce FGF at a staff meeting, via email, at a conference? What types of Friday activities do you plan to implement?

I'd love to also pitch this idea to my organization (Chipotle's Corporate Headquarters). It would be awesome if people who are interested in implementing this could all share ideas!
