Our busiest moment of the week -- 11:45 a.m. Tuesdays


I've long suspected something like this, but now we have more evidence: Tuesdays are the busiest days of the week. Even more to the point, the busiest period of the week for everyone is almost certainly... 11:45 a.m.

That's the conclusion of researchers at the British-based health supplement company Bimuno, which polled 3,000 adults to see when they're at their busiest. I can't say that the revelation is surprising, but it is interesting.

Most of the British residents polled feel that we wind up coasting through Monday because we're mentally still in the weekend. But by Tuesday, we're in the work zone, and worse, we're making up for all the time we lost on Monday. And by 11:45 a.m., that's the moment when everyone seems to have the sinking realization that not only are they completely swamped, they just may have to work through lunch and possible stay on the job into the evening.
