It’s Monday morning, the start of the working week, hmmmmmm. Are you feeling great, or would you rather it was Saturday morning with the weekend ahead? Preferably a long weekend ahead perhaps? Why make it just a weekend, let’s make it your on annual leave, all four weeks of it at once. It’s only day one, there’s three weeks and six and a half days to go and your lying on the beach in Thailand with a cocktail in hand…. feeling better??
If you can’t get to Thailand and are struggling to get off the ground this Monday (like me), stick a pencil between your teeth, it’s bound to make you smile. Better still, try it in front of your colleagues and your bound to lift the mood in the office.
The actual physical action of smiling alone is enough to produce an emotional effect releasing a certain ‘feel good’ chemical in the brain. So if your really not feeling the love today, just try and smile and see what happens.
Are you smiling with a pencil in your mouth? Send a picture to our Sideways Crayon Facebook page or tag us on Twitter. We need to smile as well.
Got any other tips on lifting your mood on a Monday morning?
