Lately, I have been starting my workdays by watching an episode of the Ren & Stimpy Show on Netflix. I watch as I eat my cereal and drink my coffee and it makes me feel…so happy! I used to start my day by checking facebook and twitter and updating statuses and checking emails and by 8am I usually felt stressed and already behind. So, I’m definitely finding cartoons to be a much more enjoyable way to start the day…Even if it is juvenile. By the time an episode is over, I pretty much have to head off to work, but my work days have been so much more enjoyable after a morning with Ren Hoek and Stimpson J. Cat. (Yes, those are their full names.)
I loved that show as a kid. I know it’s totally silly and often gross, but I find it hilarious! There is something about cartoons in the morning that is just so fun and makes me feel like a kid again. It may be just a simple, silly pleasure, but I think those are the kinds of things that can really make a difference in the day to day–Don’t you?
Anyway, I’m going to keep it up this summer and see if watching morning cartoons is the true secret to a happy work week!
