Stay away from everyone in the office tomorrow morning at 11:45. Make it a weekly thing. Put it in your phone. Tuesday morning at 11:45 AM is the most stressful time of the work week. Researchers say nearly half of workers identified mid-morning on their second work day of the week as the moment when they’re most under pressure. You coast through Monday your brain in gear for the week, but you spend Tuesday morning doing all the things you didn’t do Monday and you realize how much you have to do the rest of the week. And, 11:45 AM is the point when everything comes to a head. thankfully by then it’s almost lunchtime and you can duck into the Mexican restaurant for a margarita.
