Carpe (don’t dread) the diem.

We all know the feeling…going to bed and dreading the sound of our alarm clock the next day. We’ve seen the funny cheeky sayings “I need another day between Saturday and Sunday” ” I’m allergic to Mondays”…yadda yadda. But you know what? Having a negative mindset about a day, before it even happens, doesn’t really give that day a chance.

So I say, figure out a way to enjoy the days of the week you dread.

Here are a few ideas:

* Have some sort of after work activity you love, and can look forward to doing: Surfing, yoga, go on a hike, kickball league, etc.
* Go to a movie during the week.
* Do something über fun the night before the aforementioned dreaded day.
* Wake up an extra hour early so you can surf before work.
* Coffee with friends is always a perk me up.
* Volunteer at an animal shelter/aquarium/some place without grumpy humans.
* Take an art class one night of the week.

A little simple thing that breaks the routine, can take you from dreading a day, to delighting in it. Yes (gasp) even Mondays.

Here are a few of the best exercises to do during the holiday season…

Table Push Aways and Fork Put Downs.

Notice: You still have a fork, are eating and being festive. Please don’t feel the need to be the weird relative eating just a lettuce wedge and reciting nutrition facts on eggnog. Just remember to stop when you are full, try to not go back for thirds or fourths, and share the desert with a friend (or the dog under the table. If it doesn’t have chocolate in it).

Considering most of the US is in a cold spell, I figured it’s a good time to close your eyes, take a deep breath and think some seriously warm thoughts. Now if only when we all opened our eyes, we would be somewhere warm.

But, there are a few ways to make freezing days feel a bit warmer. Brace yourself, there are a lot of options: (more…)

Be sure to take some time out today and write down all that you are thankful for, little or small. There is so darn much to be thankful for… beaches, surfboards, road trips, random adventures, good health and all.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Now go chow down.
