How many hours a day do you spend at work? Out of your total number of hours, think about your level of productivity. Were you focused and productive for all those hours? How many hours did you spend perusing the internet? How many hours did you spend thinking about your evening plans? Or being anxious about your afternoon presentation? Staring at a blank page/screen wishing you were in your bed because you feel sick? These questions bring us to the topic of presenteeism – the act of physically attending work, but not being mentally present.
