Naps

How Can I make Power Naps at the Work Place a Viable Option?

Question:

I've been feeling really drowsy at work, especially around mid-day, and I would like to be able to take a short nap but the office isn't a very conducive place to do so. What can I do to make power napping a viable option during my lunch hour?

Answer:

There has been much debate about the effectiveness of a power nap and how it maximises the benefits of sleep versus time, especially for working professionals. We frequently work too hard, sleep too little and accumulate too much stress, and too often the solution to this is either having a cup of coffee or an energy drink.

Truth be told, power naps (less than half an hour – even as brief as 10 minutes!) have the capability to restore your alertness and promote productivity, and more effectively than any caffeine-infused beverage. Not to mention you’ll be avoiding the side-effects of imbibing too many of these energy boosters.
