Adulting is hard. You have to balance work and family all while trying to eat healthy, exercise, and maintain a social life. It’s no surprise that you need to nap on the daily.
Well, good news nap-lovers! A new study by Time magazine says that employees, specifically women, are more product and focused on the job when they are allowed to take a 20 minute snooze during their work day.
“Women, working mothers in particular, give up both sleep and leisure time. We may be running on fumes, but we’re still showing up to work on time, hoping for that 20-minute nap break later in the day to get even more done in the afternoon,” sociologist Suzanne Bianchi, who has analyzed American Time Use Survey data, told Marie Claire magazine.
Jerome Segal, director of the U.C.L.A. Center For Sleep Research, says it’s also a good idea resist that Timmies run in the afternoon and to try to wake up at the same time every day.
