If it seems like there are dozens of hashtags giving themes to every single day of the week out there, it’s because, well, there are. From #mondayblues to #sundayselfies, you can #engage with social media all week long. Here’s our guide on how to make sure your Instagram account never misses a day.


Mondays are rough, and you may need some help beating away the #mondayblues. For that, get yourself some #mondaymotivation, either by posting a shot of your gorgeous #manicuremonday or by scrolling through some hunks on #mcm (#mancrushmonday). Then again, if you aren’t into hunks (why?) you can show off your cat with #meowmonday.

Here’s a #tuesdaytip: get yourself a #tuesdaytreat, like a #tacotuesday, or even make it a #tuesdayboozeday. You can also go for #tuesdayshoesday if you’re more of a shopper, or make the treat a trip somewhere for #traveltuesday. In general though, Tuesdays are for change, so use #tt (#transformationtuesday) to show how things are changing for you. Also, if you have pets, be sure you catch them with their #tongueouttuesday.


The #wednesdaywisdom is to post some inspiration to your followers on #humpday with a #1linewed, where you post a line from your favorite book—or even one you’re working on yourself. You can jump into your past with #waybackwednesday or just appreciate some beautiful, talented women with #wcw (#womancrushwednesday) and a glass of #winewednesday. And remember, the Internet isn’t just for cats; use #woofwednesday to brag about your pooch.

You’re almost at the end of the week, so show your appreciation with #thankfulthursday, or just share some of your #thursdaythoughts. Maybe you want to take some time to look back with #tbt (#throwbackthursday), or show off your home decorating skills by photographing your #thursdaytrays, which is 100 percent a thing now. At least if you go on a #thursdate, it’s #thirstythursday.


You have yet another way to look at your past mistakes (or great selfies) with #fbf (#flashbackfriday), but otherwise, Fridays are for helping your friends get into the weekend. Suggest someone to #followfriday, or tell people what you’re reading with #fridayreads. Or you can just say how you’re #fridayfeeling.

Hold up!!! It’s Friday y’all 🙂 #FridayFeeling #Finally

The weekend is pretty laid back when it comes to hashtags, but Saturday was made for #caturday. Then again, if you’re getting ready to go out #saturdaynight, you may want to post a #sexysaturday selfie of your outfit.


#Lazysunday is even more chill than Saturday, made for showing off selfies with #selfiesunday, or just enjoying whatever #sundayfunday looks like for you. However, you can still indulge in your vices/NSFW content before the work week with #sinday and #sinfulsunday.
