Monday Momentum: September 18

Every Monday, we mourn the death of the weekend. Luckily, Monday Momentum’s got everything to get you through this week—from your morning jams to something to look forward to once Friday (finally) comes around.

Here’s your weekly dose of motivation. Mondays are tough, BE TOUGHER.

READING MATERIAL
An article from around the web to enrich your life

“The Concept Of “Surviving” Fashion Week Is Absurd,” by Hilary George-Parkin for i-D.

In an age when my phone has, in the past 24 hours, notified me of North Korea’s most recent nuclear test, rising death tolls from Hurricane Harvey in Houston, raging wildfires engulfing California and the Pacific Northwest, and President Trump’s intent to end DACA, the program that protects 800,000 undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children, speaking of “survival” in anything but the most literal of terms feels tone-deaf at best, and willfully ignorant at worst.

 

FACT OF THE WEEK
A conversation starter to help you make new friends or impress the ones you already have

Walking sideways burns 78 percent more calories than walking forward. Lateral motion takes extra effort by putting your body to work in unfamiliar ways.
