Friday Fun: Favourite afternoon pick me up?

Danny Zuccaro Community Leader Nov 30, 2017

Time for more Friday fun! So what do you reach for when you are low energy and need a boost mid afternoon? My personal fav and guilty pleasure is a Crunch bar! Have loved them since my childhood and always gets me going again. 

What is everyone else turning to for that pick me up?

Definitely a beverage -- La Croix, hot cocoa, or coffee depending on my energy level and what I've already had that day.  If I'm hungry it will typically be popcorn, chips, cheese, or Nutella and banana like @BiancaE!

yes! It's basically fruit and nuts, right?

Some times thinking about old funny TV show moments or sound bytes will perk me up a bit...

Favorite Friday pick-me-up? An Uber!!

Kidding :) 

This Friday a group of Atlassians are meeting at 3PM and are venturing out to pick up trash in the local neighborhood! Nothing like some urban treasure hunting with teammates to kick your weekend off right. 

Speaking of weekends... have a good one, everybody!

Friday, Friday. I plan for social activities, because after a long week I need a break. Sometimes they're even social activities with just me attending, but the idea is there.

Espresso, and a short walk with headphones playing something energetic.

My doctor tells me that drinking espresso is bad for me (based on the fact he found out my espresso maker makes 6 shots and they're all mine), but it's still a better option than my old habit of nipping out for a cigarette

I'm a chocolate junkie. I know, it's not good for me, but I can't help it. Shame on me... 

I try not to have chocolate here in my desk, but if I would have to buy some sweets now, I would buy:


I also like semolina and rice pudding, but of course not in the office...

Will the folks on this thread judge me if I say sugar-free Red Bull? 😉

Monique vdB Community Manager Dec 01, 2017

I mean, I'm trying real hard not to but

Erica Moss Community Manager Dec 04, 2017

I feel like you're not really trying though? 😉

@Erica Moss I definitely backed you before I read it again and saw the "sugar-free". Don't worry, I won't judge.

I judged.

@miikhy At least you're honest. 😎

Getting up for a walk to get the blood moving, and then grabbing a drink- either hot tea or coffee. Sometimes I go for the sugar rush, but usually a crash follows....

I would go for a beverage like a large Cappuccino / Latte.
