Booze over bed, the Xmas party pass out

Had one too many at the Xmas party? Sat at your desk feeling sorry for yourself? We've all been there sis! And we're not alone as a study shows the night of the party is the worst sleep of the year

A Xmas party is always followed by a hangover from hell and without a decent sleep, the following day can be a hard one. New research shows that UK employees have the worst night’s sleep of the year on the night of their work’s Christmas party, with 65% getting less than five hours sleep. Sound familiar? A staggering 80% of those who went to work the next day said they were five times less productive, spending most of the day wishing they were back in bed and doing little to NO work.

To show you exactly how your body reacts, the research took an in-depth look at the 24-hour aftermath of a typical Christmas party, analysing the toll alcohol and sleep deprivation takes on your brain and body. Alcohol stays in your system until 1pm the next day, and takes your body on a roller coaster of emotion in 24 hours. They’ve broken the 24 cycle down by hour, using in depth research to show how you’ll feel at during the party, during sleep, and during a hangover. I say it’s probably still all worth it * pours second prosecco!
