Four out of five office workers suffer from post-vacation blues, including lethargy, loss of drive to work, sleep disorders and loss of appetite, according to a survey on Thursday. This was the result of a straw poll of 457 office workers by a recruitment portal between Aug. 18 and Tuesday. Respondents gave multiple answers to survey questions.
Some 77.8 percent of respondents said they suffered from post-vacation blues, which was slightly more common among women (79.2 percent) than among men (76.4 percent).
People in their 40s topped the list at 86.5 percent, followed by those in their 30s (78.3 percent) and those in their 20s (75 percent).
The largest proportion or 72.9 percent complained of lethargy and loss of drive to work. Next came physical fatigue and loss of stamina (65 percent), sleep disorders (16.2 percent), headache, muscle ache and cold (9.7 percent), and skin complaints and eye diseases (8.3 percent).
