10 Ways to Have a Happy Monday

Good morning people! We know that Monday blues are hard to get rid of when you start the day (word has it that an average person would start to smile after 11 am!) So here are some tips of having a better Monday! 

1. Snap Out of It. Literally.
“Put a rubber band on your wrist and pluck it when you feel yourself crashing.” 
Andrew Bryant, director and executive coach of Self Leadership International

2. Set a Monday goal
“Achieve it – the sense of fulfilment will get you through the day.”
– Melissa Norman, managing director of Kelly Services Singapore and Malaysia, a recruitment consultancy

3. Break up the work week
“Take leave on a Wednesday. The week will seem shorter and Mondays won’t feel as depressing.” 
– Yang Kian Seck, founder and coach of Coaching Experience

4. Go with the flow
“Don’t panic over far-off deadlines. Solutions can pop up along the way.” 
– Sara Varela, CEO and executive coach of No Limit Result, a coaching and training company

5. Give yourself a treat
“I think about how, on my way home from work, I’ll be able to grab a bottle of moscato to relax with in front of the TV.” 
– Zen Law, 29, product marketing executive

6. Plan ahead to make Monday less of a drag
“Part of my job requires me to travel to Jurong Island to meet clients. It’s a long, one-and-a- half hour commute and I’m usually there for more than half a day – I try not to schedule these meetings on Mondays.” 
– Afizah A Wahab, 28, project planner

7. Psych yourself up with upbeat music 
“’Hello’, by French electronic music DJ Martin Solveig, is my Monday anthem – its groovy, cheery tempo gives me the energy to meet Mondays head-on.” 
– Serene Ho, 28, account manager

8. Start your Monday with a good breakfast 
“If it’s a Monday packed with deadlines, I’ll grab a good breakfast – anything with eggs – to start the day right.” 
– Diana Othman, 31, corporate communications executive

9. Go for yoga
“I schedule a before-work yoga class on Monday mornings to help me focus my thoughts and calm my anxieties.” 
– Lin Yanqin, 28, assistant editor

10. Dance it out in the morning
“I dance to Cyndi Lauper’s ‘Girls Just Want To Have Fun’ as I get dressed. It gears me up for the week ahead.”
– Gabrielle Lim, 27, retail merchandiser

As the saying goes, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. We hope you won’t turn into Jack at the end of the day!

Featured Vendor: Lorong Makan @ Markets

To all you food lovers, the long wait is finally over! It is confirmed! Lorong Makan will be making a spectacular comeback with all our local foodies curated by the one and only Food Panda! We would like to reveal that HummusCo would be returning to Lorong Makan as one of the vendors! Let’s get to know them more!

What is hummus?

Hummus is a Middle Eastern and Arabic food dip or spread made from cooked, mashed chickpeas blended with tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and garlic.

Health benefits of hummus!

The nutritional benefits of hummus can be rooted down from each of its ingredients. For one, chickpeas are very healthy because they do not contain any cholesterol or saturated fats! They are also rich in protein. This makes hummus a favorite among vegetarians. Chickpeas are also known to be effective in preventing build up of cholesterol in the blood vessels. Most importantly, it can maintain correct blood sugar levels!

What differentiates HummusCo’s hummus from the rest?

Their hummus is freshly made to order, so customers can be assured that their hummus pots are not more than a day old when they pick them up at our production site! HummusCo also don’t use artificial additives as they find that it alters the taste of the hummus and most importantly they don’t like the corresponding negative health implications!

Different ways to use hummus

Hummus is typically used as a dip, but there are also other ways to use hummus. You can include it in your diet by using it as spread on sandwiches and wraps, as dressing to your salad or pasta, as dip for raw vegetables, or as side dish for main courses. See below for more info.

1. Use hummus instead of mayonnaise as a healthy spread when making sandwiches and wraps.

2. Make an instant salad dressing by blending hummus, vinegar, and salt and pepper.

3. Blend hummus with chopped eggs, chicken, tuna, or other cooked seafood for a tangy, protein-rich sandwich filling.

4. Mound several tablespoons of hummus into an avocado half for a quick mini-meal.

5. Mash hummus with cooked egg yolks to make a filling for deviled eggs.

6. Spread toast or bagels with hummus, rather than butter or cream cheese.

7. Grill or broil Portobello mushroom caps and then top with a tablespoon of hummus.

8. Serve a bowl of hummus as a sauce for kebabs / grilled meats of all kinds.

9. Toss hot cooked pasta with hummus, season with cracked black pepper, and sprinkle with chopped fresh chives or parsley.

10. Spread hummus on a pizza crust, top with roasted vegetables and olives, and bake at 425°F for about 10 minutes.

11. Stir a spoonful of hummus into scrambled eggs or omelets before cooking.

12. Spread hummus lightly on fish fillets, top with herb-seasoned bread crumbs, and bake at 400°F for 10 to 15 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.

13. Hummus works well as an appetizer served with whole grain tortilla chips.

14. And more……………..
