Claims data on accidents in the home over the last three years has revealed that a third more domestic accidents happen on Monday mornings compared to any other day of the week. Accidents are more prevalent on Mondays because more people are recovering from a weekend of staying up later and often of drinking much more heavily than they would do during the week, according to statistics released by Halifax.
Lack of co-ordination on a Monday morning leads to accidents including fires started with hair straighteners, letting baths overflow and spilling drinks onto laptops. Psychologist Glenn Wilson said: "Mondays are marked by low performance and inattentiveness as the body and brain struggle to recover."
