Next job interview, inquire about nap-time


Scientists are saying that short (20-30 minute) naps can

improve alertness, memory, motor skills, decision-making, and mood. All while cutting down on stress, carelessness, and even heart disease.

And

With Americans averaging fewer than seven hours of sleep per night—and around 20 percent suffering from sleepiness during the day, according to a recent Stanford University study—many companies have turned to the humble nap in an attempt to stave off billions in lost productivity each year.

Apparently “napping” has become mainstream (in some big corps like Nike and Google)… Unfortunately, my company has yet to adopt nap-time during working hours.
