I need a nap. Please don’t tell my boss, but I’m tempted to crawl right under my desk and zonk out for an hour or so. It won’t be very comfortable, what with all the electrical cables and cold french fries. But I’m a dedicated napper, and I know it’ll do me some good.
And best of all, I now have scientific research to back me up. At this year’s meeting of the American Association of the Advancement of Science, researchers from UC Berkeley showed that a 90 minute nap around noon can help increase our ability to learn for the rest of the day.
And for those of you struggling to get a decent nap, well, I’ve got some great news too! Lifehacker has this guide for getting a great power nap.
