1. You got up before your alarm went off, successfully avoiding pissing off your roommate for snoozing for an hour. High five.

2. Took the stairs up to the office, all 15 floors of it. Even beat the elevator with Jeff from accounting in it. Air five.

3. Tempted to have a midmorning snack of artificially flavored crisps with high fat content? I THINK NOT. High. Five.

4. You got your inbox down to zero, plenty of time to hang around the water cooler and chat about last night's episode of Breaking Mad Dead of Thrones. The highest of fives.

5. Had a great idea. You didn't tell anyone yet, but some self-congrats are in order. Self-five.

8. When faced with the awesome, life-altering choice of taking the stairs or the escalator, you always choose stairs, because you're the boss of how fast you move between floors.

9. You walked home from work today, successfully avoiding terrible traffic and one very upsetting bumpersticker you would have been staring at for at least thirty minutes. Street five.

10. Awesome nostalgic movie on TV? Nope, nothing can stop you from hitting the gym.

11. Guess who didn't make it to the gym today? That's right, your rival, JEFF. You still got it.

12. You realized while jazzercising that you've actually managed to put your liberal arts degree to work in a meaningful way. Put that palm UP.
