1. Most of us don't crack our first smile until 11:16 a.m.
2. The best preferred way to beat Monday blues is by watching television or having sex.
Well, who WOULDN'T want to do either of those instead of going into to work!
People also would prefer to do: on-line shopping, buying chocolate or make-up, or plan for a holiday.
3. Over 50% of employees are late to work
That's just crazy! So if you were on time today, pat yourself on the back - you are part of the minority!
4. Most people will moan about it being Monday for a whole 12 minutes.
Well, misery enjoys company, so there will be people around to hear you complain!
5. People between the ages of 45 and 54 are likely to suffer the most Monday blues
I was really surprised to read this. I thought for sure the "younger" generation would suffer more from the Monday blues. Maybe the middle age people realize that they are stuck in dead-end positions with no place to go; the young ones have their "futures" ahead of them.
6. Workers only manage three-and-a-half hours of productive work
Heck, they might as well just cut to the chase. Come in after lunch, say, 1:00 pm on Mondays. By then they'd have a smile on their face, they probably wouldn't be late for work, wouldn't have to complain about it being Monday because it's half over with already, and working 3 1/2 hours would seem like a full day's work! Problem solved! Everyone should work a 4 1/2 day work week!
7. Monday is the most likely day to commit suicide.
Yikes! A permanent solution to "calling in sick".
8. Or have a heart attack.
There was a 20 % increase in heart attacks on Mondays as opposed to any other day of the week as reported in the British Medical Journal. The heart attacks could have be caused by stress and high blood pressure from returning to work.
I have given you 8 negative things about Mondays; the following two are POSITIVE things. YEAH!
9. Monday is the least rainy day of the week.
Which I think is kind of ironic since it is raining as I type this, but hey, what do I know?
10. Monday is the best day to buy a car
Sure. Now I find out about this, after I just purchased a car on a SATURDAY. (Yes, we traded in BIG BLUE for a regular, everyday, 4-door sedan car.)
Anyway, Mondays are usually quieter days. The crowds from the weekend are gone, the salesmen are looking to make a deal. So YOU make YOUR move.
I hope I have enlightened you.
I hope you are having a good Monday.
If not, don't worry.
It's almost over.
