When you have a hangover, you're likely to experience problems with your:

  • Memory
  • Concentration
  • Dexterity
  • Visual-spatial skills, or your ability to accurately perceive how objects you're looking at relate to each other in space around you

Not surprisingly, this temporary dulling of your abilities increases your risk of a number of problems at work, including:

  • Trouble completing your tasks
  • Criticism from a supervisor
  • Conflict with co-workers
  • Falling asleep on the job
  • Workplace injuries
