Working on a Happy Monday
When life gives you Monday, dip it in glitter and sparkle all day. ~ Ella Woodward
Daylight Savings Time
Ahh Daylight Savings Time is back and I’m really happy about that. I’m one of these people who would actually prefer to have Daylight Savings Time all year. You see I’m not a morning person and I really don’t like leaving work in the dark for a chunk of the year. I know there are plenty of people who would prefer things the other way and even a few who probably enjoy the shifting back and forth. That’s just not me.
Sometimes Mondays are dangerous
The big downside of the switching back and forth of course is that we lose an hour this weekend. Actually, we lose the hour we gained back in the fall, but that won’t wake getting up this Monday morning any easier. This isn’t just an inconvenience, or even just the makings of a sleepy morning, it is in fact dangerous. There is an 8% increase in strokes on the Monday after the time change to Daylight Savings Time. So truly friends, take it easy this Monday morning. Also watch out for sleep deprived drivers.
Change your perspective on Monday
So we’re all going to go to bed early tonight right? Of course not and I know a lot of you are like me and find it hard to get to bed on time for a normal Sunday night. So, tonight, with the time change, it gets even harder. So tomorrow morning, or this morning, depending on when you are reading this, you’re likely to wake up a little more tired than a typical Monday, a little more grouchy and not in the best mood. That’s why it is so important to remember the quote above, you see we decide whether or not we’re going to be happy. Sure, it’s hard, but let’s all try just a little harder tomorrow morning to be kind, to be grateful, to not be so short with each other, to let someone into traffic, hold a door, say thank you and good morning and let’s all try to have a happy Monday my friends. ~ Rev Kane
