Do you buy into the study? would you be able to crash at work? should all companies go this route?

  • When I was younger and used to party, back in the old days. I used to nap at work. We used to sneak into a storage room and actually sleep. Now I just want to finish my work and get the hell out of there.

  • I worked for a large corp that had meditation/stress reduction rooms. You could sign in during your lunch/break go in, lock the door and take 'power naps', listen to music, read a book... On days we had 5+ deadlines due and worked 14 hour days, I would take full advantage!! ;o)

  • If I could I would, But I am not sure it would make me feel better after a power nap. I may just end up being more sleepy. I am pregnant though and get droopy eyes around 2PM.

  • I'd rather go home early than waste time there on a nap.

  • I can't sleep when it's broad daylight out unless I am totally exhausted or really sick. In which cases I wouldn't be at work anyways.

  • In medicine, if you are pulling a 16 hour, the hospital provides rooms and beds to sleep in, showers and free food. Hotel staff managers also get free rooms and food. In the energy sector, construction sites for new plants often provide sleep rooms, showers and free food. If it was determined to be beneficial and effective, yes I would. But the sleeping naked would be hard to explain or to avoid sexual harassment laws. :)

  • People who work the overnight hours often times take nap breaks, instead of meal breaks. I never did because I would be groggy afterwards- but many, many nurses did nap.

  • I used to envy the Italians when they would shutter everything for their riposo.
