Be honest, when your alarm went off this morning you reached across to hit the snooze button didn’t you?
How many times, though? Once, twice…five times?
After realising you could put it off no longer you dragged yourself out of bed, put the kettle on, had a shower, got yourself looking reasonable and headed off to your first day at work for 2016. It is a pattern millions of us have done following an extended holiday (for those lucky enough to have one!)
So, you are now sat at your desk, going through the hundreds of e-mails you missed while you were consuming vast amounts of calories and toasting the past 12 months. You’ve had several coffees and spoke to your colleagues about your exploits over the past few weeks. And on every desk a shiny new diary sits alongside a bottle of water and thoughts of a detox plan going on in your head – as well as how you plan to survive your first week back – and how long it’s going to last.
At Happy, we held our usual Monday Morning Meeting and once the festive chatter was out of the way we hit the ground running with some positive news to start the year from clients and colleagues. An hour later we are raring to go, cracking on with jobs and looking to the future.

Happy New Year from everyone at Happy Creative!
