From Fidget Spinners to office layouts, every six months or so you can count on a new fad to come around to cleverly address unproductive work habits, but truth be told, keeping up with every productivity trend can be a bit tiresome.
Well, it turns out that fatigue, whether it is from trying to achieve productivity ( I don't know about you, but trying to keep a Fidget Spinner aloft is exhausting) or simply a lack of sleep, might be the more likely culprit of office inefficiency.
