It’s hard to measure “happiness improvement” on a day to day basis. It’s not something that is tangible. I spend all day with myself. But I think I found one notable improvement. My mood on Monday Morning.
Let me explain. Like I have mentioned before, I have to wake up at 3am every Monday and head off to work to count and weigh all the food and beverage in the restaurant. Measure all the liquor in the bottles and lift every tapped keg of beer. I then have to imput all the numbers and compare them with the sales rung in on the POS and look for mistakes.
By then it’s 6AM and it’s time to put a way the Food Order which has been stacked in either the freezer, walk in cooler, or back room over night. After that it’s on to my regular opening responsibilities while catching up a delagating tasks after a busy weekend.
By the time my guests and most employees arrive at 11am, I’m usually a ravng lunatic. Short tempered and anti social is an understatement. I’m just counting the seconds before I can get home and lounge the evening away.
But I’ve noticed that in recent weeks that has all disappeared. After taking a day off, I am ready to take on the week with a new found spirit and energy. In addition to drinking all my water, I have downed an entire pot of offer. I do my best to be cheerful and helpful to all my employees who are also tired from a very long weekend. It’s now 730pm and I am getting ready for a run.
Since I left work at 3Pm. I have taken Liam to the Doctor, worked outside on the yard, did all my household tasks, and we took the kid to the lake for a stroll. He’s so cute in this little voice “come back her futtterfry”. #ThankGodItsMonday
