The poll of 1,500 UK adults identifies the top 25 things that most help us to keep going throughout the day.
The five most popular productivity boosters at work are listening to your favourite music, having a strong coffee, ticking off your to do list, regular snacks and inspiring colleagues, with the top three things people most dread about the week ahead being feeling skint, stuck in a rut and the daily grind of the commute and domestic chores. However, come the end of the week 82 per cent of Brits admit to treating themselves to something, whether that be leaving work 10 minutes early, buying a nicer lunch or going for a mini-pamper during lunch break.
Peter Grainger, Co-founder of CafePod, said: “Our research shows the challenges that people are under these days and the creative range of tactics we are using to keep going and survive our fast-paced lives. Today we’re excited to launch our Live Fast. Drink Strong campaign which is centred around our mission to provide coffee lovers with an exciting choice of strength-based coffees to enjoy at home.”
