For those who continue to work throughout the summer, there is no doubt that you have experienced the "summer slump." It's a researched fact that those who don't get a summer vacation, tend to become less productive in their workplace because they're simply worn out. According to this infographic by phone service company Grasshopper, with a rising temperature comes a falling productivity rate.

Other reasons why the summer months put workers in a summer slump include the desire to daydream about what they could be doing outside of work and the concern for the internal office temperatures. Oddly enough, 46% of workers are not comfortable in their offices during the summer because the air conditions are either too cold or too hot.
