Monday is painful on a number of counts – sleep deprivation, return to work mode with an overflowing inbox, the weekend’s catastrophes lying in wait, and regret for lost weekend opportunities.
So how can we improve them? Besides the sensible things, like maintaining a consistent sleep pattern and cleaning up the desk Friday afternoons.
This morning I indulged in leftover dark chocolate pudding – for breakfast – along with my coffee. What other things could help make Mondays better?
- As above, dessert for breakfast!
- Schedule lunch with a friend.
- New shoes!
- Ditch the depressing news on the way to work; listen to NPR, comedy or an audiobook.
- Or, the TaniaTM method – resign.
I’m sure the rest of you have ideas, serious or tongue-in-cheek, please share!
