Monday Mornings are sometimes the culprits...
You know the minute your eyes pop open, after the horrible continuous howling of the alarm clock, that it's not going to be a good day. The mere act of getting out of bed, to quieten that unrelenting alarm clock, is a slow-motion adventure which is interspersed with terse moans and groans. Should a spouse be close by, he / she will be at the receiving end of the unhappy barrage. If they are clever and know you, they have already beat a hasty retreat !
For me, there are some definite " cures " that lift those " blues ". When you feel like that, it is time to go into immediate action.
1...TRY and take the day off.
2...GET dressed as quickly and un-slovenly as you can, and go to your local store. If you don't know the people there, it does not matter how you dress, but try and at least brush your hair ( and eh..teeth ).
3...ONCE in the store, go straight to your survival aisle. You know, the one with all the treats you like. The same one, that you usually try to avoid, yet walk up and down it a number of times to " just " look. Buy all the food that makes you feel better. For me it is chocolate, crisps, ice-cream, biscuits and celery. The celery is just to stop me feeling guilty. I do put it on top of the basket, so if I run into someone I know, the celery deflects their eyes off all my goodies !
4...GO to your local DVD shop and get RomComs (Triple Feature: French Kiss, Never Been Kissed, One Fine Day ) or Action Flicks ( Die Hard ). The more the merrier. Don't forget, you will spend the day on the couch in front of the TV .
5...GO to your bookshelf and choose a romance novel ( I like These Old Shades by Georgette Heyer ) to read. Something simple yet effective. Men, you should also try a simple romance novel, as it gives you great insights into our ( women ) minds, which is helpful, as most likely we ve caused you to have a bad day in the first place.
Please let me know your Feel-Good magic and ritual. I would love to hear from you.
