The holidays are over, the grim realities of life are laid bare as the glow of lights and tinsel fade. Maybe you've gained weight. Maybe it's unimaginably cold where you live. Maybe, for whatever reason, you're totally just not feeling it today.
You're not alone. The Monday after New Year's is typically known as "Blue Monday," the saddest day of the year. Why? For all the reasons listed above. Do you really want us to repeat them?
So yes, that is a perfectly legitimate excuse to look at pictures of smiling animals. Your boss wants you to. Because today's mission is simple: Be happy.
