Monday

A...argh!! Its Monday again!



Yet another Monday is back. I feel sullen. Monday mornings always seem to be here all too soon. Especially after a weekend that came and — Whoosh! — it's already flown by. And all too soon, it's Monday the dread day. But no matter how much I moan or groan, there is no escaping the M days. I want to snuggle deeper into my quilts and hide my eyes away from the light streaming through the curtains and want to chuck the alarm clock in the sea!

But alas the alarm peals away consistently and I got to move my hands to find it and stop it from yelping so much. I sleepwalk my way to the music system- it works for me! The music helps blank the mind...For today its got to be some pick-me-up — peppy numbers, on other days it could be lilting instrumentals, chants or whatever else works for that day, but today has to be something more quicker, faster to wrench me out of my sleep starved state.

The brain slowly comes awake and the adrenalin soon wakes me up. A quick ready to leave state and a gulp of the glass of milk and am on the move. I get to work humming the last song I heard …

Some say if you drink a full glass of water as soon as you wake up, it can give you almost as much energy as drinking something caffeinated. This is because your body looses fluid during the night. Well, for me it works. I drink lotsa water< when I remember to:)

Was also told to try having something with protein in breakfast. Egg whites or nuts. The proteins makes one feel more alert and ready to tackle the M day ahead!Since I am not a breakfast person I get to work very early and about 10ish order for some food that keeps the engine running till lunch

If I could . I would sleep in an extra hour on Monday mornings. Going to bed early on Sunday night doesn't always help I remain awake until my usual bedtime. So as I trudge through the day, music is my constant companion and sees me through the day - my saviour

Soon it will be Tuesday, I remind myself, a good thought to get through the day!:)

a good way to just engage oneself or assure one self . My bad mood starts from sunday night and i get irritated with each and every work and person....the worst part is to come to office and see the box flooded with mails and all on high priority....... it seems everyone has put their mails and work on you to slog for the week..... anyway where there is life , these things are bound to be.....

It starts with Monday and each day thereafter is a Monday till Friday comes up. good mood for 3 days, ennui for 4. not such a bad deal.

Hi Mee

I suggest you relocate to the Middle East - we start our week on Sundays...so i guess that would help...heheheheh

The whole weekend concept undergoes a metamorphosis here..thursday is the new friday and Saturday is the new sunday.

infact thankgod for having my own biz, allows me the flexibility to sleep in more than you and still slog at work and have fun

Monday or no monday Mee, you MUST have breakfast, not good to skip breakfast like this. A healthy big meal at the start of the day is what the doctors have ordered for a good life. So get on with it:)

Mondays can be damning especially after a hectic weekend so I know what you are saying. But aren't weekends meant to be more relaxing?:)

sheila said...

i love Mondays, gives me time to catch up with family the weekend, and Monday week am ready to pull up my sleeves all over again. i guess we all have our 'i hate mondays' syndrome too, so don't worry, I do get what you sayin:-)

No matter what the day, I feel like snuggling in a little bit more. Just 5 minutes longer. I sleep best in the morning, just when it's time to wake up. I've never figured that one out. But whatever time I do wake up, I like to smile. :)

My persoanl favorite of the week is wed n fri for obvious reasons. Mon I am detached abt and tues thurs pass by in a dizzy. If I were running my own business then I guess I wouldn't have minded no day as long as I enjoy wat I am doing

melinda said...

O Mee! I struggled today and absolutely loathe mondays, and like someone said sunday evenings too are not too happy knowing monday is staring me in the face:(, but by the time its monday noon I become more sociable n happier, the week has begun!

For me, the Monday morning blues caused by the inertia triggered by a relaxed weekend, typically last till I start my day at work. Once the work gathers momentum, the blues vanish into thin air, giving me energy to take on the week ahead.

Though Monday is the first day of the week i find that it is not necessarily the most productive day, work wise. Most working people seem to have the blues or weekend hang overs .In government offices one often witnesses clusters of people gathered together shooting the breeze about their weekend with a drag ass attitude towards their work. If i have any work in any government office i usually go on attack mode from tuesday onwards :)
To me monday is hair cut day coz that's when most folks are at work and i dont grow a beard ...waiting my turn for a hair cut !:)

Mee said...
