1. De-Blahhing at Work

(Okay, so I’m not sure de-blahhing is a word, but let’s
run with it anyways, shall we?) According to a staffing
survey by the accounting firm Accountemps, 33% of folks
feel least productive between 4 p.m. – 6 p.m., while 29%
suggest noon – 2 p.m. is when they most feel the blahs.
To counteract the blahs, make sure you eat properly,
get some fresh air (oxygen at work is a beautiful thing),
stretch your legs with a quick walk, plan to do less
mentally taxing work during your blah times, and finally,
plan for a brief humor break (read a funny books, listen to
five minutes of your favorite comedian, or find a good
humour buddy) during the peak of your blah time, because
nothing can de-blah the blahs faster than a hearty laugh.
2. Mike’s Fun at Work Tip

Since summer is here (at least for those of you on
the northern half of our lovely planet) here are five
quick and easy fun at work things to plan this summer:
– Hold a Hawaiian shirt day, and award a prize for the
tackiest Hawaiian shirt
– Hold (at least one) ice cream sundae social event
– Have at least one staff meeting outside
– Hold an indoor staff beach party, complete
with fake palm trees, fake sand and fake fancy drinks
– Bring in a few disposable cameras and create a fun
wall of photos specifically for the summer season
3. Deep Thought of the Week

“The trouble with being right the first time, is that
nobody appreciates how difficult it is.” Anon.
4. It’s a Wacky, Wacky World

A few weeks ago we talked about a lovelorn swan that
had fallen for a paddle boat, now it seems there is
a peacock in London who has his eyes on a lovely
gasoline pump. Each year, the eight year-old peacock
leaves his roost during the mating season, saunters
on over to the gas pumps, and spends the day preening and
prancing for the gas pumps. (Well, at least someone
enjoys going to the gas station these days.)

Happy First Hump Day of the Summer Season! Keep laughing.
