I have a very difficult time concentrating and staying alert during meetings. It has nothing to do with the person speaking or the material being discussed. It's a phenomenon that happens when I am expected to not fidget or talk. In my silence I become acutely aware of the way the conference room lights give me a headache, I can hear and feel my breathing like I do when I'm about to drift off-and suddenly I feel like someone has thrown a big, heavy blanket over me and I'm afraid that I will fall asleep at the table. It reminds me of being in class at school! I'm not alone. A new survey found that a whopping 40% of people have actually dozed off at a meeting over the past year. The sleepiest time of day is 2:00 P.M., so try to avoid scheduling meetings after lunch!
