Fuck Me I’m Famous megastar DJ David Guetta revealed some of the secrets of his success in an interview with the Times this week and as well as singling out his Stakhanovite work ethic, suggested quitting drugs 20 years ago made a big difference.
“When I stopped, my career went whoomph overnight,” the Pacha Ibiza party host recalled, “None of my friends can work Monday or Tuesday, so I have two more days in my week.” (UK Times)
His appreciation of the importance of making the most of Mondays coincided with the publication a new report on dressing habit which revealed that British women take over four times as long getting ready for work on Mondays as on Fridays.
The survey of 1,000 people by UK department chain store Debenhams said women typically spend 76 minutes on Mondays trying on clothes, washing and doing make-up, declining to 19 minutes by Fridays. Men similarly took 28 minutes on Mondays and just 11 minutes by Friday.
"Make the most of looking at your work colleagues on a Monday morning,” Debenhams spokesman Ed Watson recommended, ”Because that's as good as they're going to get.” (Reuters)
Web portal Ehow suggests ‘there's actually a scientific explanation behind those dreaded Monday morning blues’ (which is actually quite complicated) though the advice site offers suggestions including leaping out of bed, having a cold shower and one worded strikingly similarly to David Guetta’s top tip.
“Drink coffee or another caffeine beverage,” says Ehow, “Although it's not healthy to drink caffeine to the point of addiction, caffeine, when used in moderation, can give your Monday mornings that much-needed oomph and alertness.”
