Monday Can Be Easy Like Sunday Morning


Easy Like Sunday Morning

Mondays seem to have a bad wrap.  So many people wake up with the “oh man, it’s Monday” attitude and need an extra kick or nudge to get going.

This is one of the reasons we came up with our “Make it Happen” Monday posts.  They are intended to help get any of you needing some extra motivation off to a great start.

Just as Monday mornings have their reputation…Sundays have typically been known as a day of rest.  I guess switching gears is part of the reason Monday mornings can be extra tough.

But why can’t every day be “Easy Like Sunday Morning”?  We saw this fishing boat parked at one of our favorite beaches here in Grenada and I instantly knew it would be the focus of today’s post.

Mondays might be a whole lot more complicated and require additional responsibilities…but with a Make it Happen attitude and a feeling of everything is easy, they can be as enjoyable as the day before.

Sure today is Monday, but I want you to wipe away any stigma you have associated with it.  Have a look at this photo once again, get Lionel Richie playing in your head, and make it an easy and relaxed day.

“that’s why I’m easy
I’m easy like……..”

Enjoy Your Ride

    It’s a little harder to do this when one is still working a M-F full-time job! I am very fortunate to be retired now, so Mondays are just fine for me — like every other day of the week. But no so much when I was still working in corporate America.

      Remember those commercials where they had the “easy button”? Well, work time can be made easy as well. It’s all attitude…..thanks for your comment.

        Actually, I used to have the option of working from home one day per week in my corporate job — and I picked Monday as my day home for years. Really helped ease the transition back into the office-based world, and when the weather was nice, I’d slip out for a lunch break bike ride. Did wonders for my attitude! 🙂

Sugar Alternatives for Energy and Hydration

Question: I am using the homebrew sugar formulations (sometimes added to green tea).  I am also trying to wean myself off 1/2 dose adrenalean “lip tonic delivery system” (biorhythm brand- caffeine, hoodia g, synephrine, yohimbe) capsule for energy.

My question is other than juice, can you suggest modifications in lieu of table sugar for energy and hydration.


Both raw/organic honey or agave can work great in the homebrew (substitute in the same quantities for the sugar, or to taste), but you do have to shake well in order to make sure they don’t settle out.  Have you tried either of these?  Also, make sure to use at least the minimum amount of salt recommended in the homebrew as the temps rise, you need the sodium replacement if you’re sweating.
