PHAIWA wants to know what you think about certain public health issues. Please read below and answer our poll on the right:
Recently The Conversation published an article entitled, 'Want to boost your memory and mood? Take a nap, but keep it short.' The article states that the overwhelming feeling of sleepiness some people experience in the afternoon can be immediately relieved after a short nap and that alterness can be improved for a few hours after waking. It also claims that the best time to take a nap is sometime in the early to mid-afternoon and that sleep should last no longer than 20 minutes. This lead to a brief discussion in our office as to whether taking short naps on the job (i.e. during lunch breaks) should be acceptable. Would post-nap work productivity be sufficiently boosted? Are there underlying OHS issues? Have your say!
Our Deputy Director would never allow it, but we want to know what you think: “Should brief naps during an employee’s break time be permitted in the work place?”
