7 reasons you deserve to put your feet up tonight

It’s been a hard day.

IT’S THE FIRST day back at work for a lot of us, and with any luck you’ve managed to make it through the day without losing the will too much.

Whether you’re currently on your way home, or you’ve already got there – you deserve to sit back, relax, and put your feet up tonight.


Not that you need a reason, but here’s seven. Just in case anyone asks.

1. Your alarm went off…

At an ungodly hour, no less, no matter what time it was.

And hopefully you didn’t break it either when you turned it off or when you threw it across the room.

2. And you got up…

Whether you had a tantrum or not before you did is a different story. But you did get yourself out of bed.

You might have even fallen into the shower.

Good for you.

3. You made it to work…

You braved public transport and the weather and you got yourself into work in one piece. Hopefully you didn’t miss your stop either.

Well done.

4. And you made it on time…

Just about. By the very skin of your teeth – still counts.

You might have even picked up a little treat on the way, just to help you power through the day.

5. You stayed in work till the end of the day…

Which was quite the feat today, to be fair. It doesn’t even matter that you probably didn’t get much done.

You’re there in body, if not in spirit.

6. You braved the journey home and survived…

It might have felt like the longest journey ever. You might have had to stand all the way, pressed against various strangers.

Regardless. You did it.

You’re a modern day warrior.

7. You made it home…

In one piece, no less. What an epic, epic day.

So put your feet up. You deserve it.

Well done, you survived. Now, go and put your feet up.
