If it’s a workday, chances are you hardly have an ounce energy left by quitting time. About 40% of workers report feeling fatigued at work on any given day. I’ve definitely been there; too little sleep, too much stress, and the feeling that you just can’t get enough done can wear you right down until all you can think about is sliding into bed, pulling the sheets over your head, and staying there…forever.
The irony is that that cycle only drags down your overall productivity, not to mention your health and happiness. Plus, there’s something just a little sad about spending all afternoon counting down to the end of the workday only to slog home, collapse onto the couch, and spend all evening watching other people doing fun and exciting things on reality TV.
