The Exact Time of Energy Dips
Workers are most likely to feel a dip in energy levels when the clock hits 1:29PM. A study of 2,000 adults currently working from home found more than a third are doing longer hours now than before the lockdown. As a result, more than half suffer from low energy levels by lunchtime.
… But there is help, and it’s just 60 seconds long. The UK-based health lifestyle brand Swisse Me worked with music producer Paul Whitehead to create a hi-energy track that blends house music, techno, and drum ‘n’ bass. The track — supported by a university professor of music at the University of West London — can supposedly help eradicate the lunchtime lull.
… The professor said: “The blistering stomper is 140 beats per minute, packed full of early ’90s piano house motifs, an injection of hard house, and follows a skippy breakbeat pattern. Rave is primal and activates deep-seated brain regions that are used to process feelings of happiness and euphoria. … Music affects us so deeply, it activates more regions of the brain than any other stimulus and provides profound benefits to both our mind, body, and soul.”
