“Why you should learn to nap like a pro”

Discuss:

Companies like Google, Ben & Jerry’s and Zappos are unapologetic about their pro-napping stances, but a majority of businesses have yet to jump on the siesta bandwagon.

A quick snooze can also prevent burnout. If you work 10 to 12 hour days, five to six days per week, your productivity will decrease and you’re bound to burn out. A nap will give you that extra boost of energy you need to work longer hours.
