Office Workers Most Alert On Tuesdays

By Devaki

The office workers are at their top form at office at 11.33, on Tuesdays, says a new study. But it will be a downhill after that with Fridays being the worst day, closely followed by Mondays.

After the weekend, two-thirds of people feel over-tired, with workers spending at least half an hour making coffee, reading the paper and chatting with the colleagues.

A psychologist explains that people are not at their peak on Monday mornings. They will be beverages,chatting,monday blues,overtired,stress,weekend,work cultureed, thinking of the things they have to do the days ahead. This is a main reason for the Monday morning blues, too. But people have got rid of a lot of the in-tray, by Tuesdays. They feel more relaxed, more patient and are likely to be more productive.

He also says that Fridays are the days when everyone dumps on everyone else. As technology makes people available 24/7, people really work hard and so they require leisurely weekends. They should do a relax and unwind at the weekend. But it is very difficult for employers to know what to do because they have let the genie out of the bottle, adds the expert.

More than 3000 workers from Britain participated the survey, which was conducted as a part of this study.
