We all do it sometime during the work day. I'm talking about that mement you hit the wall and there's just no getting around it.

We've all done it. Lunch is over and maybe you're still a bit groggy from that. It could be a lot of things causing you to experience that crash, but modern science has figured out the exact time you're like to experience that crash. Accorording to a new study, the average person hits the wall at work at exactly 2:22 P.M.

There are several factors that come into play to cause that afternoon crash and burn, but some of the most common are:

1.  The office is too warm.

2.  You didn't get enough sleep the night before.

3.  An overwhelming amount of work.

4.  Boredom.

5.  It's hot outside.

6.  You ate too much for lunch.

7.  You're coming down after a crazy or busy morning.

8.  Dehydration.

9.  Worrying about money problems.

10.  Eating unhealthy food for lunch.

You may be experiencing several of those problems at the same time and the afternoon crash is inevitable.

The most common way we try and overcome that P.M. crash are going outside for some fresh air, drinking coffee or just taking a break.
