How To Make Mondays NOT Suck #13


If this is your first time embarking on a Make Mondays NOT Suck (#MMNS) journey, we suggest that read this first. With that being said, let's face it- we all know that Mondays suck.

Why Does This Monday Suck?

For those of us that viewed history in the making last night, and have forced themselves into work on a day that some are saying should be a national holiday.. we have really put ourselves ahead of the game in regards to momentum.

Facts about Super Bowl Monday (#SMUNDAY, as the expert marketeers at Heinz have cleverly hash-tagged):

  • 16 million Americans will not show up to work: (1 in 10) 1

  • 10.5 million Americans planned ahead and requested the day off ahead of time 1

  • 7.5 million people could arrive late for work 1

So..How Do I Make THIS Monday Not Suck?!

First of all, Congratulations to the New England Patriots Franchise and most importantly Tom Brady. I'm a Giants Fan at heart but after going to school in New Hampshire and being shown the ways of #TFB (My college roomate and Nitchell Natchell bestie, Bmac that's you brother!!) having a respect for greatness in all forms, you can't help but catch Brady Fever.

Ask yourself this question: At halftime, with the score 28-3 Falcons, how many of you said "This Game is OVER!"?

You quit on Tom Brady? Shame!! Those that recognize true greatness understand that no feat is too big for someone with the tenacity and dedication to winning that Tom does.

We witnessed an absolutely mind-boggling comeback unfold before our very eyes and in the same stroke as our reaction to Jordan Spieth's last round back 9 slide during the 2016 Masters, we look to sports to learn about our own lives. With your back against the wall do you crawl up into a ball and cry for Mommy? or do you formulate a plan, execute it and crush your goal?

Halftime Manifest Millennial Facebook Live, Mr Manifest quotes: "Tom Brady is one of the greatest athletes in sports and Bill Bellichick, one of the greatest coaches so I don't think you should count them out yet." (00:00:12)

YES That's Right! Mr. Manifest Called the Comeback!

With that being said,

Today We're Talking: Recovering from Super Bowl Sunday.

Strategies for Action:

  1. Going with last week's theme of staying in shape, the first suggestion today is going a nice run.

    • There's nothing better than a brisk jog (pronounced YOG) on a Monday evening after work.

    1. Eat some pineapple. (and of course #HydrateUp)

      • According to Registered Dietition Annessa Chumbley, "Bromelain [An active ingredient in Pineapple] restore[s] peace in your intestinal system; it lowers any inflammation in your body after that night of junk food or the other things you would have been drinking and eating...”1

    2. Sign this petition to Make Monday after Super Bowl a national holiday so that next year, we'll have the day off and I can write about something else.

    3. Kick back and relax - You've made it through Monday.

      • Keep calm and Manifest It!
