Are You A ‘Master-Napper’?
No one in this world can nap like me.
There are many traits that I'm proud to have, along with many talents. One of those is that ability to nap pretty much anywhere at any time. Now, I know what you're thinking... "Why don't you just go to bed earlier, Gazelle?!"
That's just the thing, I go to bed at a reasonable time, but for some odd reason, when mid-day comes rolling around, I find myself irresistibly tired and I end up just falling asleep.
I've slept pretty much everywhere in the office:
-Michael Rock's Brand New Office/Couch
-Nancy Hall's Futon
-Michael's Old Office
-The Sales Department
-The WBSM Studio
The Conference Room
-The Fun 107 Studio
-Outback Behind The Studio
-and finally in the small production room.
Alright, I get it... who cares right?! Answer: ME!
Here I am, just trying to charge up the ol' battery for a little juice, that way I can carry on with my day without that drowsy/exhausted feeling. Believe it or not, naps are actually really healthy for you.
According to the National Sleep Foundation (NSF), they claim that napping is actually essential for someone with a busy work day:
"While naps do not necessarily make up for inadequate or poor quality nighttime sleep, a short nap of 20-30 minutes can help to improve mood, alertness, and performance."-NSF
I even found out that I'm not the only one in this world who takes advantage of a good nap... NSF has archived some of the most famous/historical "Master-Nappers" who have walked this earth:
"Nappers are in good company: Winston Churchill, John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, Napoleon, Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison and George W. Bush are known to have valued an afternoon nap."
So, to all my co-workers who may laugh at my expense of a quality nap, the jokes on you! I'm only bettering myself and the value of this company.
Everyone else, don't ever be ashamed to shut those eyes and give those 'lids a break for a few minutes. Just don't do it too much or for too long... you'll end up getting nothing done at all! So, fellow "napsters", nap away... that's what I say.
