Could Your Employees’ Use a Productivity Boost?

Its common for office workers to feel tired in the afternoon. But this can be a serious problem if it affects their productivity. That is why many offices are starting to encourage short power-naps to combat drowsiness.

NASA sleep researchers have found that a nap of just 26 minutes can boost performance by 34 percent. Another NASA study found that napping significantly increases “working memory”, the ability to focus attention on one task while holding other tasks in memory, which is critical when performing complex work.

This is why more and more colleges and offices are starting to have nap-pods available. They are noticing the benefits short power-naps have on productivity. Such as, lower stress levels, improved ability to concentrate, and enhanced mood.

Recently a study done by the National Health Service in the UK has found another technique for improving alertness and productivity. Its called a coffee-nap and it entails exactly what the name suggests – drinking an average cup of strong coffee followed by a short 15-20 minute nap. This method has proven to be the most effective because the caffeine in coffee take approximately 20 minutes to activate in the body. So that when you wake up from your nap, the caffeine is just starting to take effect, giving you a two pronged attack for fighting off drowsiness.
