• Over 1 in 5 London office workers have unhealthy reliance on caffeine

        • As millions of people prepare to head back to work over the coming weeks as the lockdown measures are eased, the rigours of the commute, office-based working and lack of home comforts will undoubtedly be a shock to the system. 

          With this in mind, how can those returning to office-based working ensure they are fully prepared and energised for the intensity of full-time office work?

          Millions have turned to increased consumption of coffee and energy drinks to boost energy in lockdown, but 1 in 5 have developed an addiction to consuming these caffeinated drinks whilst 19 per cent have reported ill-health effects as a result of overconsumption.

          For many of the 24 million Brits currently working from home, the prospect of returning to the office is a welcome one. A recent study carried out by Olympic nutrition provider Revvies discovered that over a third (37%) of people in Britain report that working from home has made them the most lethargic and tired they have ever been.

          However, the research also suggests that many workers won't be able to ease back in to working from the office, as a quarter (24%) of people say their employer hasn’t explored any flexible working options to help them return to work after lockdown.

          John Nolan-Neylan, CEO and Co-Founder of Revvies said, “our research highlights the dramatic negative impact this past year has had on our energy levels. 

          “COVID induced lockdowns have caused millions across the country to remain confined to their homes, limiting opportunities to be active. Now, as we prepare for a return to the office, it is more important than ever for us to find ways to help employees perk up and be prepared for the shock of returning to office working. 

          “Our energy levels affect every aspect of our day-to-day lives, be it our mood and mental wellbeing, how much we get done at work, or how able we are to exercise. It perhaps comes as a surprise that our energy levels have dropped as our activity has slowed down this year and it seems that people are now looking for alternatives to the traditional ‘go-to’ cup of coffee or sugar-filled energy drinks.”
