We’ve all heard the song, “Manic Monday,” by the Bangles:
“It’s just another Manic Monday,
I wish it was Sunday
‘Cause that’s my fun-day
It’s just another manic Monday”
Monday gets a bad rap as days go, and I’d like to offer you a little help in turning it around.
Join me every Monday as I share a “Manner Monday” tip for you to think about as you get your week started. Manner Monday is for everyone … anyone trying to make a positive impact on their personal environment and the people they come into contact with on a regular basis.
Manner Monday is not a long and arduous process … it consists of little tips (many of which you already know, but may need a gentle reminder) to help keep good manners in focus and in check as you kick off your week.
Here are a few ideas to make the most of Manner Monday:
*Use it as a table topic for mealtime discussion this week.
*Post it on your mirror, in your car, on your computer, or the bulletin board.
*Use it to jump-start your staff meeting.
*Do you drive carpool? Have the kiddos turn off the technology and engage in some dialogue using the tip of the week.
Have fun with it!
