OnePoll conducted a survey commissioned by Monster Energy which published that three in five Americans are more tired than they have ever been in their lives. The study targeted 2000 respondents and reported that the most familiar energy-depleting activity is poor sleep timetables. 

Americans blame the pandemic for their exhaustion

One in two of the Respondents attributed their poor sleeping timetables to working late, while 52% believe that exhaustion is a permanent side effect of the lockdown. In addition, several of the Respondents admitted that staying at home during the pandemic drained them of their energy. 

The study revealed that 59% admitted spending time at home since the pandemic began. However, a few Respondents confess to feeling unfocused and acknowledge that getting a few moments of sleep is not a perfect resolve.

Some of the Respondents stated that no amount of sleep could assist them to focus or conduct activity during the day. As a cause of their depleting energy and creating Exhaustion, 53% of the Respondents blame it on working long hours and staying home during the lockdown. 

41% reported that the lack of routine in their lives, especially during the pandemic, was blamed. The study revealed 46% of the Respondents spent most of their time in front of a screen, creating a lazy streak. 

Americans use caffeine as an energy booster 

The study reported that several Respondents experience a drip in energy, mostly around 1.04 p.m. During this time, 64% will choose beverages such as caffeine to boost their focus during the rest of the day. 

A previous study conducted with 2,005 Americans published that as much as caffeine assists with energy-boosting, only a few consumers are aware of taurine. Furthermore, only 37% of the Respondents knew the ingredient as a perfect energy booster, while a third of the Poll had no idea what it was.  

Another contribution to the global energy drain would be video conferences. Three to five of the respondents admitted that video conferencing was more exhausting than regular meetings, with 49% believing that random conversations with co-workers in regular meetings assisted them in being alert.
