Do you hate Mondays? Great, I've got amazing news for you. Turns out your hate for Mondays can actually reveal a thing or two about your personality. People who can't stand Mondays usually wake up with a deep feeling of "loser complex" from a weekend of drinking and/or eating more than you normally would during weekdays.
A study reveals that women feel least attractive on, you guessed it, Mondays! In fact, about 46% of women admit to feeling the least excited to look at themselves in the mirror on Mondays. So if you've been feeling ugly on Mondays, just know that you're not alone, sister...
Keep in mind though, there are tons of great things that come along with "Monday Blues". Our feeling of internal unsatisfaction actually leads to a positive and more productive week!
In other words, when you wake up feeling bad about yourself and thinking, "Why am I doing this to myself? Whyyyy?" (sounds familiar, right?), you reevaluate your whole life and think of ways you can become a better person and make yourself proud. Your existential crisis turns into a complex of insecurities that, in turn, make you want to change and do great things that week. That's why so many diets and lifestyle changes start on Mondays. Diving into a new workout routine, getting that gym membership, becoming vegan or even making that important business decision - Mondays are perfect to give us that little push we needed to make a change. Now let's hope this enthusiasm lasts throughout the week.
We told you about a possible snowfall just yesterday and quite a few of you were not happy about the news. Well, sorry about that. However by the looks of the first snowfall of the 2015 fall season does not seem as if it will stick around for too long. Did you take any nice pictures of Montreal's first snowfall? You can #mtlblog on Instagram and we will feature the best ones! Have a great weekend!
Cure your case of the Mondays with a smile, because it's National Smile Week, and no matter how much Mondays may suck, there's always a reason to get grinning. An initiative originally meant to increase dental health awareness, National Smile Week is an annual event in the UK which has made its way to Montreal through the magic of the internet. You may be in frown-town right now on this Monday morn, but we've got your smile-fix right here, and it'll help you make the less fortunate get happy too.
To spread the smiles around on Smile Week, Beast Sheds has created the Smile Generator, an online generator of smile-inducing pictures and videos. Click "Make me smile" and you're given an adorable pictures/meme/vine that is sure to warm your icy heart and put a smile on your face.
Smiles are contagious, and so is the Smile Generator, 'cuz if you share the generator online you're automatically entered into a competition where you can win a £50 donation (about $90 Canadian) to the charity of your choice. So you smile, you then make a friend smile, and you then make a charity and all of its benefactors smile through your donation. That's smiles on smiles on smiles, which is as uplifting as it gets on Mondays.
