The idea of taking naps daily is not something that is commonly practiced as part of our normal work day.
There is often a stigma associated to those who take regular naps. They can be perceived as slacking off, being lazy, uncommitted, unmotivated or a low-performing worker.
From the person taking naps perspective, they can feel guilty, especially if they have a lot to get done. If we become aware of the benefits of taking naps, we can decide if it’s something we want to try.
The days I take naps compared to days I don’t, I notice a significant different in my effectiveness, especially mid-afternoon to early evening.
Whenever I can, I’ll try and get a nap in mid-afternoon because that’s when my energy levels tends to drop. My intention is to take a nap daily because I know it helps make me more effective.
