9 Reasons Why You Should Nap at Work

3. Dozing at the Wheel is Dangerous

For those who drive to work, lack of sleep can be hazardous. Drowsy driving causes approximately 100,000 car crashes annually, with younger people being the most at risk. While getting a full night's sleep before driving is the ideal, taking a short nap before driving can reduce a person's accident risk. Experts suggest that if you're tired before you get behind the wheel, try grabbing a "caffeine nap." Drink a caffeinated beverage, recline your seat, doze for 20 minutes, and wake up ready to go.
