We’ve all been there.
There you are, sitting at your desk, staring at your computer, when suddenly you feel your eyes start to close … Then comes the rush of panic as you jerk your eyes open and look around to make sure no one saw you nearly use your keyboard as a pillow.
Napping at work is still a no-no in most offices, but a new story from Inc. says some companies are starting to change their thinking on getting a little shut-eye during the work day.
The story cites companies who have gone so far as to install nap rooms and encourage the practice.
There’s also a body of research in support of a workday siesta. James Maas, who Inc. credits with coining the term “power nap,” tells the magazine a 15-minute can restore your energy. Still, the story says longer naps can leave you feeling groggy.
