Napping at work can be stressful

Sleeping At Desk

Science overwhelmingly supports a workday snooze, but sleeping on the job is stressful.

Bloomberg News reports that for or more than a decade now, research has proven the benefits of napping on the job.

Yet another study out this summer from the University of Michigan found that participants who took an hour-long nap weathered frustrating tasks better than those who didn't. Science knows that the midday snooze produces all kinds of benefits, including improved memory, increased alertness, and decreased mistakes.

There's also some evidence that naps help with creativity and problem solving. At the other end of things, researchers have found that workers lose 11.3 days of work because of sleep deprivation.

As a result of these findings, countless articles over the years have implored tired desk workers to take a sleep break - all in the name of increased productivity. But who really does that ?
