**1. Why do I feel like I'm going to fall asleep at my desk after lunch?**
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.
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.
**2.Why do I always manage to spill my coffee when I'm walking?**
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.
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.
**4.What's the deal with 'work crushes'?**
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.
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.
