Similar to Tuesdays, Wednesdays can be a very stressful day of work/school for your followers.  Medical Daily explains that midday Wednesday is when energy levels are at their lowest and stress levels are at their highest.  This makes it very important to post images and videos that will cheer your fans up.

Case Study
It’s important to seek advice from experts when you wish to achieve goals.  When it comes to social media, look no further than Taraji P. Henson aka Cookie Lyon.
Here are 10 of our favorite post from the talented actress.  We have also included some of our favorite Cookie Lyon posts from Empire’s official IG account.  Each image includes an action tip.  If it wasn’t for Taraji’s hard work on social media she most likely wouldn’t have been chosen to play Cookie Lyon.
10. Choose the right colors.  Cookie and fashion go hand-in-hand.  Her gold outfit is perfect on the following white background.
