How-to survive Mondays

We’ve all been there. It’s Monday and we’re suffering from post-weekend withdrawal symptoms. Just the thought of having to go through 4 more days (excluding Monday!) before the next weekend is simply, well, too much to bear. You’re just too depressed to be productive today – you’ll probably be able to muster enough energy to clear the urgent matters, but that’s about it.

So, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to help you through this dark moment.

Note: If you choose to open any of the suggested links stated in this article, you might want to keep those windows to a discreet size. Aside to MY Boss, I was totally doing work when I had these sites on my browsers.

8 sites to keep you entertained during work 

1. [VID] Jimmy Kimmel’s Celebrities Red Mean Tweets, YouTube

Watching Jimmy Kimmel’s Mean Tweets is good for us because it allows us to view something negative through a positive and humorous perspective. That’s what we tell ourselves to justify this sadistic pleasure at someone else’s expense. And also because it’s just downright hilarious. Our personal favourite’s #7.


2. [GAME] Find The Invisible Cow

Disclaimer: You will have to use your earpiece for this. It’s addictive, and it’s also a brainless activity (which is probably why it’s addictive). Here’s a hint to help you with the game – read the title of the game carefully. Yes, the cow is invisible.


3. [VID] Talking Animals, YouTube 

If your pet could talk, what would it say? YouTube channel, Talking Animals, has a compilation of videos that anthropomorphise your household pets. Is your dog upset because you ate the last bite of the steak? What if your cat actually hates it when you go on a cute-cuddly-mode with it? This YouTube channel will make you look at your pets in a different light. #IKnowWhatYouAreThinkingAbout


4. [GAME] Pac-Man

It’s a web-based Pac-Man. #BestThingEver #Classic #EnoughSaid


5. [HUMOUR] The Oatmeal

There’s a certain appeal to reading random, quirky, easy-to-digest information when you’re attempting to do work. They are the best form of low-investment distractions. The Oatmeal is a database of hilarious stand-alone bite-sized comic strips about various topics. Open this up on a standalone incognito window, keep the size small and occasionally scroll down to view the comics for a short comic relief.


6. [HUMOUR] Anntonii

There’s The Oatmeal, and then there’s Anntonii; a rich database of memes with a localised humour. We love jokes that speak to us in our common tongue, i.e. Singlish. As we tend to view this when we’re in the office, our mouse would naturally hover over the Office Memes category and we giggle in secret pleasure when we recognise some common experiences.

Viewer discretion is advised: Coarse language.


7. [A BIT OF EVERYTHING] Bored Button

Feeling bored? Click the Bored Button on Bored Button. The beauty of this site is that you’ll never know what you’re going to get. Life is all about random surprises.


8. [GAME] I Love You Like A Fat Lady Loves Apples

Mindless, low-energy and low-investment game. Your mission in this game is to use your mouse to navigate the character’s hand so that she can eat her apples. It’s as simple as that and that’s why it’s perfect for a quick distraction when you’re on the job. Try it.
