“People lack energy!” says energy drink
How tired are you feeling? Given that it’s Wednesday, apparently you ought to be feeling verrrrrry sleeeeee-peeeeeee:
One in five workers admits falling asleep at their desk with Wednesday the most likely day employees will nod off
A fifth of British office workers are so tied they have dozed off at their desks, a new study has revealed.
The poll of sleepy staff found that a third of those quizzed had taken a nap at work due to an afternoon energy slump, with one in five actually falling asleep at their desks.
Around one in five, or 22 per cent of the 2,000 UK office staff polled, have snoozed for between ten minutes and an hour – with most people napping for 47 minutes and Wednesday being the day these workers are most likely to nod off in the office.

Wednesday is the day when we all have the least energy, and when we’re all most likely to nod off at our desks. Unless we have something on hand to boost our flagging energy levels, that is.
The research was carried out by energy drink Lucozade Revive, who noted that a sneaky one in ten admitted to falling asleep in a meeting room or an office bathroom.
