I snuck off to our "relaxation room" at work once after a terribly boring meeting which I almost fell asleep in to take a nap during my lunch break. My boss was worried about me when I came back because I normally tell her where I'm going-and she killed herself laughing when I told her I'd gone to take a nap. It was probably my most productive afternoon ever!
ditto - i wish i could.
when i first started i made a comment to my boss that i was really tired ( i think i was dealing with new house stuff at the time) so she said to me "well then go ahead and put your head down on your desk for awhile and take a nap". uhhhhh i'm sure if i did that now she'd think i was nuts. she's the type of person to say "oh yes, you can take a sick day if you're not really sick" and then get soooooo mad at you if you actually do it.
a relaxation room would be SO NICE!!!
around 2-3 in the afternoon i am dying for a nap.
I am the type that cannot nap unless I am in an actual bed so I have never done it, but I used to work with a colleague who would nap sitting up in her chair at her desk. She fell asleep in the break room during lunch a few times as well. It was never frowned on, someone would just wake her up after awhile. LOL
heheh.. I nap everyday on my lunch hour in my car.. lol. We have no break room/ relaxation room at work.. so I'm either off spending $$ at the mall close by, running errands or napping. I prefer to nap.. it saves me $$..
I work at a medical facility, so most people on the non-management floor don't have any desk or space of their own, hence the relaxation room. I have a desk, but not an office, so I would feel uncomfortable napping where other people could see me.
I am not a napper but I have slept on the couch in the boardroom before when I've been sick. One time I went to rest at lunch and told them to come and get me if I wasn't back by 1pm. I woke up at 3:30! They didn't have the heart to wake me as they knew I was quite sick.
This sounds gross, but I know that there are people at my work who actually nap in the bathroom stalls. Google it, there's all types of tips and tricks on how to use a roll of toilet paper as a pillow, LOL
