难解的办公室迷思
为什么午饭后总犯困?为什么咖啡总会洒出来?为什么抗拒不了食物的诱惑?为什么总有办公室恋情发生?科学解释来了,迷思让道——>

**1. Why do I feel like I'm going to fall asleep at my desk after lunch?**

**为什么午饭后回到座位我就想睡觉?**

Circadian rhythms dictate that it's totally normal for humans to be drowsy around seven hours after waking up. So, say you wake up

at 7 a.m. and arrive at the office around 9 a.m. By the time 2 p.m., you'll naturally be a bit sleepy.

人体的生物钟决定了我们在起床7个小时后开始犯困。假设你早上7点起床,9点到公司,到了下午2点,你很自然会有点困。

Although food definitely can induce drowsiness (especially if you've eaten a large meal that saps energy, repurposing it towards

digestion), this phenomenon is not tied to lunch consumption. Studies have shown that people tend to feel sleepy during the afternoon, even if they haven't eaten lunch.

虽然午饭的食物也会导致犯困(特别是你吃了一顿大餐,能量都被用来消化了),但午后犯困并不直接和食物相关。研究发现就算有些人没有吃午饭,午后他们还是会犯困。

**2.Why do I always manage to spill my coffee when I'm walking?**

**为什么走路时我总会把咖啡**弄洒**?**

When swished in any vessel, coffee tends to rotate at a particular frequency. The human gait occurs at a rate that happens to stir up the natural swishing motions of coffee. This makes spilling likely, and it occurs most often between your seventh and tenth step.

不管你用什么容器端着咖啡快速走动,咖啡都会以一定的频率转动。我们本身走路的频率也会加速咖啡的转动。这样咖啡就很容易洒出来,而且最容易在第7步和第10步之间洒。
**3.Why is it so hard to resist food around the office?**

**为什么在办公室好难抵抗食物的诱惑?**

A four-week study published in the International Journal of Obesity showed that displaying candy in a clear dish rather than an

opaque container increased the amount of candies eaten in an office setting. Moving the dish physically closer to participants also increased candy consumption.

《国际肥胖杂志》发表过一个为期4周的研究:如果糖果放在透明容器里,办公室的人就会吃得比较多;如果糖果放在不透明的容器里,大家吃得就比较少。而且,糖果放在离人比较近的地方,就会吃得多;放在比较远的地方就吃得少。(要减肥的童鞋知道该怎么做了吧?)

**4.What's the deal with 'work crushes'?**

**办公室恋情靠谱吗?**

According to Psychology Today, proximity is really the core of attachment. Familiar people have a calming, soothing effect on us. Seeing the same person day in and day out may lead to warm and fuzzy feelings.

根据《今日心理》杂志的说法,近距离是喜欢的核心。熟悉的人会带给我们平静和安心的感觉。每天都看到同一个人会产生温暖而模糊的感觉。

Shared experiences are important when it comes to bonding. If you go through stressful work situations along with colleagues, an

emotional connection is forged. Coworkers can commiserate together, and also share in each others' successes.

共同的经历对亲密关系也很重要。如果你和同事一起经历有压力的工作,你们之间就会建立一种情感上的关系。同事就是用来同甘共苦的。
