Naps are good.

Recommended Posts

Actually, naps are amazing. I can't help but feel a crash throughout the day, and a nap can really pick me up for the rest of the day. I just have to be careful to not let them go on for too long.

According to ScienceDaily, kids who nap are significantly happier, smarter, and nicer. I think the human body was designed to nap. It just seems weird to just sleep for 8 hours, then expect everyone to be fully awake for the next 16 hours without a break. Some people just need to recharge, even if its just for 20 minutes.

In fact, I'll take a nap right now.

I like taking naps sometimes. I took one today in fact though I try not to to much. I get to busy.

Naps are definitely a good thing. From what I've read, make sure to keep your mid-afternoon naps under 25 minutes though. Any more than that, and they'll actually drain your energy.

They're a particularly bad idea for me.  Naps are a known trigger for cluster headaches for me.  This probably contributes to my naturally sleepy demeanor.  It really does suck though.

There are suprisingly many people who think Power Napping is just short sleeping (for some  one - three hours!)  while they should be between 20 to 30 mins. I guess many people think that they won't even fall asleep during this time or wouldn't get enough sleep - which wouldn't happen if they did it regularly... (power napping is something you learn over time and is shown to be immensely effective, while, as you wrote, any longer than that is actually energy draining)

As for napping in general - I don't really do that. I try to get my 8 - 9 hrs of sleep, go to sleep at roughly the same time and wake up at roughly the same time and hardly ever feel tired during the day. Although there are days where I get wayyy less sleep due to assignments or studying but this also means that I can't nap due to them...

I wish that naps were more common in the workplace. I know some companies like Google allow naps, but I wonder why it's so common to just expect your workers to be fully energized for 8 hours a day. Allowing your workers to recharge would definitely lead to happier workers and less accidents, I'm sure.

We need to change the fast pace of society before expecting anyone to accept naps to be normal for adults. Such high demand is placed on productivity that I couldn’t even see this being possible.

Actually, a lot of places implement flex scheduling for this reason.  We have limited flex options at work, but there's also admin/flex time available to all employees who want to get out of the office for an hour or so outside of lunch.  Since the post is so unique, most who do this generally go for jogs, walks, or hit the gym.  The turnover rate for professionals in our area is exceptionally low - but there's more than just the ability to flex time that makes it worth it.

As for naps at work, I could see that being a thing.  I certainly wouldn't pay my employees for it, but I could see excusing an hour a day around lunch time for it.
