Take this moment to make the rest of your Monday nothin’ but bliss. You’re just 3 steps away – how easy could it get?
1. Resolve to let the little stuff slide.
Be a duck and just let the little irritations slip right off. People can be grumpy on Mondays, and we never get as much done as we would prefer. Shrug it.
2. Call someone you love.
Whether it’s that pal whose crazy ideas make you feel better about your own goofs, your understanding Aunt Susan, or your significant other, take 10 minutes out of this hectic day to have a friendly conversation. No multi-tasking, either! Give this person your complete focus for ten whole minutes. You will both feel great. That rapidly filling email inbox will not melt your computer if you ignore it for a bit.
3. Eat something!
Between 2 and 4 p.m. today, eat a complex carbohydrate snack such as a handful of nuts or a banana. This will boost your serotonin levels. Wash it down with a big glass of water to wake up and feel alert for the rest of the afternoon.
