Napping is an age-old
tradition. In many countries, workers still take a siesta in the
middle of the day. Research has shown that afternoon drowsiness is part
of the body's natural rhythm, not just a response to a heavy lunch.
Most of us agree that sleep is nice, but does it help our brains?
Actually, yes. NASA research has determined that a 26-minute nap can
boost workplace performance by 34 percent. Daytime sleeping improves
mood, creativity, and focus, all of which may make us better employees.
