Ever taken a NAP AT THE OFFICE during the day??

My boyfriend takes a 30 minute nap every single day at the office, just puts his cap over his head and goes to sleep, I can't do this, once I am up, I am up for the day, but now researchers are showing that a 30 minute nap a day is heart healthly .. with that said, would you take a nap at the office everyday knowing that it is good for you? Perhaps our employers should give us a location for such adventures to take place? What do you think?

I guess it would be nice for some but it would take me longer than 30 mins. to even fall asleep. I can't sleep during the day either. I use to work 3rd shift a could fall asleep standing up though lol.

When I was pregnant with my 2nd daughter, I worked in an office, and I would go out to my car and put the seat all the way back and take a nap. I had a little travel alarm clock I took with me or I would sleep right through my whole lunch hour.

I've done it on my previous work, and it was somewhat allowed by them employers. But we do this during lunchbreaks and an extra 30 minute break at the afternoons, by that we don't affect the work that we are doing. And we could also preserve our energy when working starts again..

I have never taken a nap at work. but if it is good for a person, the employer who give you lunch might want you to take the nap as part of your lunch.

I think everyone should if they can, especially if the job is stressful. we all need a brake so I would advise everyone take a brake and rest your eyes if you get a lunch break. I sure you do.

Several of us have taken naps at the office. We have a boardroom with really comfortable chairs. We just pull two together and take our shoes off and lay back and snooze. I am on disability now. As I started getting sicker, it was harder to wake up from these naps. Sometimes my coworker, would feel bad for me and leave me there. I would then feel bad cause I was sleeping on work time and not my lunch break.

My Husband does the same thing. I'm just a housewife, but i do take naps at home :P I think that if i was working and needed a nap, it would be nice for the bosses to provide an area for people to do just that. My husband is a truck driver, so when he wants a nap he just pulles over into a rest stop or pit and takes his nap... I hope they get him a sleeper bunk in that damn thing soon though, because when he comes home at night i'm forever working out those darn kinks Peace and love

Depends on what kind of job you have. I used to take a nap before (it happened to me twice I think), I felt asleep on a chair and it was early morning. Tha night before that - I was out and of course - I had no sleep that night.
