Come Monday mornings, I often think of those of you who are working in offices and other workplaces. I’m always very busy on a Monday (particularly after a sale as big as last night’s…..phew!), but it’s a very different kind of busy. I can, and usually do, stay in my pj’s all day. I can do a lot of my tasks – invoicing, updating the website, sorting out address labels – propped up in bed, thanks to a laptop. I can stop for coffee and cake whenever I fancy. And if I want to have an afternoon nap and catch up later in the evening, that’s ok too (not that I’d do that, oh no…..). This is the beauty of working from home, of being your own boss.
So I always feel sorry for those of you struggling back to work after the weekend. Stressful meetings, an overflowing inbox, too many calls to return. Poor you. Don’t you think it’s about time you took a coffee break? I think so too. Make yourself a drink, think about knitting, and chill……..
For the especially stressed, try some soothing herbal tea. Breathe in that aroma, warm your hands around the cup, and let nature calm your body down.
