It’s already known that easy access to your kitchen is leading many Americans working at home to pack on the pounds, but a new survey says some are also tying one on while technically on the job.
The survey sponsored by alcohol-free beer alternative HOPWTR shows that 46% of those working from home have knocked off early at least once to have a drink during quarantine. Another 45% of the 2,000 respondents said they’ve had a drink while on the clock. 64% say they’ve participated in a virtual happy hour with co-workers since the quarantine began. One in five say they want to drink less next year. Other bad habits the respondents admitted to picking up during the pandemic include snacking too much on comfort food (40%), drinking too much caffeine (32%), and staying in their pajamas all day (23%).
