According to the Mayo Clinic, short daytime naps offer many benefits. Just a 15- to 20-minute nap or even just deep relaxation, reduces fatigue enough to offer "improved performance, including quicker reaction time, better memory, less confusion, and fewer accidents and mistakes."
That's right, Mr. Boss Man, it's not just me that thinks it's a good idea. The Mayo Clinic agrees, and those folks don't mess around when it comes to medical research. They know their stuff. I bet THEY take naps.
Not enough? Ever hear about a place called Bell Labs? Well, me neither. Until that is, I read an article about them and their important innovations during the 20th century such as the transistor and satellite communications. How were they able to accomplish these things? That's right; they took naps.
So consider this, Mr. Boss Man, which is just a generic term and should not be taken as offensive to the bosses that happen to be women: why not stop dumping so much extra work on your employees? Why not make everyone happy and increase productivity by giving everyone a 15-minute nap? Why not rejuvenate your employees and calm down and de-stress the ones like "Donna" who tend to go off the deep end late in the day?
(This has been an unbiased opinion by Rebecca Todd, who would never nap on the job without permission.)

Americans might run on sleep, but those living in the country's largest cities don't appear to run on much.
