I’ll Tell You Why I Quite Like Mondays

I know it’s blasphemy but I like Mondays, and I’m going to try and make you love them as well. Try, as I think there are ways.

You Get More Mondays Off Than Any Other Working Day

At least 4 Mondays a year are bank holidays, more depending on when Christmas and New Year fall, so that is down to only 48 a year required, add in holidays you take and you drop up to 5 weeks more, that is potentially 9 Mondays of 52 written off as work days right there, 17% gone already.

Mondays Make Up A Seventh Of Your Working Life

Think about it, dreading Monday is wishing away a seventh of roughly 50 years you’ll work for, that could be over 2000 days or about 5 years of days you hate, that is a lot.

Make Monday A Fun Day

I have things that make me happy on a Monday, I make it magazine day, when I get my latest copies. I go to the coffee shop and have a leaf through for 20 min before getting my bus. It creates a little oasis of clam and happy before tackling the day

Pizza Monday

Most of the take aways near me have offers on during the week, I love a pizza Monday, it feels good after the inevitably busy day to know I can come home and not have to cook.

A Chance To Start Over

Every Monday is a fresh start, the jaded overworked end to a week is long gone, I’m recharged and ready to roll, to possible the impossible and get it all right this time, but also I have a whole week of fun to do, all those activities I have planned are now THIS WEEK WOOP WOOP

You don’t have to be that annoying bloke on the job to love Mondays, you just need to shift the view point.
