You pounded the alarm clock into submission only hours ago, yet it already feels like Monday should be nearly done. One glance at the clock knocks the wind out of you…… It’s not even 8:30.
For me, some Mondays move by like a with the cheek-flapping speed of a glacier. The day drags on like a much more painful and humorless version of Bill Murray’s experience in Groundhog Day. *cue ‘I got you Babe’ by Sonny and Cher*
Other Monday’s feel like a reprieve from task/duty/work-filled weekend that didn’t include a moment of indulgence.
My Mondays tend to be split down the middle. The secret for surviving a Monday Malaise, or maintaining a Monday’s motivation, at least for me, is starting it right. No, I’m not talking about breakfast. I’m not even talking about my choice of liquid jumper cables. I’m talking about something to make me laugh. I don’t need anything heavy, weighty, or even mildly meaningful. Just give me something that will get me laughing my ass off. After that, the rest just falls into place.
What is your typical Monday like? How do you cope with it? Are you part of a #coffeebandits group that sucks down enough of that aromatic perfection to consume half of Brazil’s 15% of the global supply, or do you just dive in and get it done?
How do you deal with your Monday malaise/motivation?
