A quick review of the recent research makes it instantly clear that naps are basically a wonder cure for pretty much any productivity problem you can think of. They boost performance, improve memory, reduce stress, increase creativity, and even make you kinder.
But if the science of naps couldn't be more clear cut, why do so few adults find time for a quick afternoon snooze? Logistical hurdles are clearly a huge problem for many. Finding a boss that approves and a quiet corner to rest your head is an impossible challenge in many workplaces. But even entrepreneurs who set their own schedules and write their own rules often fail to nap when their bodies are calling out for a bit of extra rest.
