Did you ever get caught by your history teacher while taking a nap when you were in junior high school?
I’m guilty as charged. Back in the day, I used to feel embarrassed when my teacher would politely yell at me, “Ankur! Please go wash your face.”
Only if I knew back then that naps taken in short intervals of 30 min actually increases productivity in the long run.
Yes, you heard it correct. And this is backed by science.
We all love science, isn’t it?
Don’t believe me, just watch if for yourself.
So take your naps without any guilt. Just be extra cautious when you’re in the room with the CEO discussing company’s strategies for the next fiscal year.
