Naps can Rejuvenate you

Should you take a nap during work days?  Good question.

You wouldn’t want visitors, or even your boss, coming into the office and seeing you with your head down.

So your choices would be an empty conference room or private office. Or your car if it’s not too cold outside.

If you’re a home-based business, then it’s easy to go into your bedroom.  In either case, you might want to set an alarm on your phone to wake you at a certain time so you don’t nap too long.

Personally, I do work better in the morning and at night.  My downtime is the afternoon.  I feel rather slow and sluggish  in the afternoon and find it harder to concentrate which is why I try to do something routine like data entry in the afternoon.  Focusing and thinking are better for me in the morning or evening times.

So it would seem that I might want to nap in the afternoon and re-energize, but I haven’t really tried it.  The few times I’ve napped in the daytime it was because I had a bad night the night before or I was sick.

Michael Hyatt  references some major people who were nappers:  Edison, daVinci, Einstein, and JF Kennedy, and

Helen Sanders (Health Ambition) describes power naps and how they work.  Very interesting article, especially on how you have to wake before you go into deep sleep.

 

Maybe next time I’m tired in the afternoon, I should try a short nap.  It just might rejuvenate me to make better use of my afternoons.  Do you nap?  If so, how long?

Here’s to sleeping –  I mean napping!!
