But on Tuesday reality sets in and staff spend the first part of the day going through emails they ignored on Monday before planning the week ahead.
And 11.45am is the point when everything comes to a head.
The findings do make a certain amount of sense, but, naturally, we’re wondering how closely Lifehacker readers match up — so let’s hear which day you dread in the comments.
