Don’t take a nap @ work until you clear it with your boss and HR. Why? You may get reprimanded, written up, or fired. Share the science of how strategic napping is a performance optimization technique. If you’re boss or HR does not believe in science or taking care of their #1 asset, then the message you’re really getting is the following: “Fuck You…We’re Going to Suck Everything Out of You and Replace You.”
You may need to find another job at an employer that values you as a person, values your health, values your well-being, and not just your performance and productivity.
Moving to another job may not be possible. If this is the case, commit to putting yourself first if you know that your boss and workplace are you putting you last.
