160 Wednesday Motivation Quotes To Make Your Hump Day Rock

Wednesday is the day that I like to compare to a coin. One side of it says: “Ok, I survived Monday and Tuesday and I’m looking forward to the weekend”, and the other sighs; “Oh, the weekend is still far away”.

What’s your side of the coin? Do you feel positive when Wednesdays come, or this is the most dreaded day of the week?

Counting down the days until the weekend can definitely be challenging. Mid-week time can make us feel short of will and ambition.

That’s why it is crucial to seek some motivation to help you make Wednesday the best day you possibly can.

And that’s where my collection of Wednesday motivational quotes comes in!

For all those of you with the other side of the coin struggling to deal with the Hump Day blues, I’ve searched the web to gather the best Wednesday quotes to get you through the day.

Read them and get motivated to make your Wednesday rock!
