Vindication!

September 9, 2015

Forcing staff to start work before 10am is tantamount to torture and is making employees ill, exhausted and stressed, an Oxford University academic has claimed.

Before the age of 55, the circadian rhythms of adults are completely out of sync with normal 9-to-5 working hours, which poses a “serious threat” to performance, mood and mental health.

I’ve been saying this for years, based on hard personal experience. Read all about it. Now, if only there were a way to make the circadian rhythms of children align with those of adults we’d be laughing.

  1. That completely chimes with me too. It’s not just starting at 9 either, most people have actually got to be on the road well before that so making the situation even worse. Can now feel vindicated while feeling tired!
