Pinch, Punch – Happy New Month!

Pinch Punch – so how are you feeling this first day of the Month…?

I know many people who are actually starting their ‘New Year’ again this particular first day of the month! Was January 2016 really that bad! Mine was okay-ish I kind of just got on with it… but maybe it wasn’t the case for you?

So, are you one of those people who actually dreads Mondays? Or is it the chance to start the new week – and a new month – motivated and rearing to go!

The hashtag #Mondaymotivation seems to do the rounds most Mondays, so this tells me that people need a little kickstart on a Monday for whatever reason…. me being me tends to be motivated any day of the week! Or at least that’s what I tell myself! But is there actually something about Mondays? Let’s see….

When will you first smile today? Apparently, most people do not smile on Monday until 11.16 am. That’s kind of sad.

And did you know, 50% of workers on Monday are late for work – more than any other day! Have you clocked in yet?! I am running the risk of running late already! [maybe cos I am writing this!

Monday is also the most common day of the week for people to throw a sickie! But hay, don’t worry – you are safe, apparently Friday is the most common day for people to get fired!

‘Monday morning syndrome’ mostly affects people aged 45 to 54 years….. mmm wonder who falls into that bracket. Do you?

Most suicides occur on Monday….. and the number of heart attack victims increases significantly on a Monday too…. so look after your health everyday, okay.

However, Monday is also reported to be the least rainy day of the week….. really? Well I am saying nothing about the weather in Torbay today….! But lets just say it has been a bit stormy recently!

Research also shows that Monday is, the best day to buy a car! And Monday is also the busiest day of the week for online shopping! So get spending! Retail therapy and all that!

But finally,…. as Monday is an anagram of DYNAMO – it cannot be such a bad day after all…… So get moving!

Have a great Monday everyone! And here’s to a good month too.
