    There is a correlation between napping and reduced cardiovascular events.

    I feel we should get at least two paid daily naps a week at work with this research.

    Don’t feel guilty about sneaking in a nap now and then: It might be good for your heart. People who napped once or twice a week were 48 percent less likely than non-nappers to face serious cardiovascular problems — heart attack, stroke, heart failure — according to new research. The findings, published in the journal Heart, were based on nearly 3,500 adults, ages 35 to 75, who were tracked for about five years. How long people napped each time made no difference, and napping more frequently than a couple times a week did not improve the results. Sleep experts generally agree that a ­20-minute nap is all that most people need to feel refreshed and less stressed. Napping longer means waking from a deeper sleep and that can leave someone feeling groggy or fuzzy-headed. Napping late in the day also is not recommended because it can mar nighttime sleeping. The recommended amount of sleep for most adults is at least seven hours a night, with an hour or two more for people 61 and older. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than a third of Americans regularly get too little sleep. That can lead to chronic health problems, including diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease, according to experts at Harvard Medical School’s Division of Sleep Medicine.

    At one of my jobs there was a hallway around a few corners beyond the bathrooms near our office where no one ever went cause there's was nothing back there. I used to take cat naps leaning against the wall back there, disguised as really long bathroom breaks.

    The alternative was me turning into a zombie at my desk but work frowns on napping.

    I've been playing this one mobile game for about, idk, eighteen months now, and I'm in a guild in the game. It's a mass-audience mobile title so there aren't, like, robust social features or user profiles or anything - all you ever really know about anyone is from what they say in guild chat, and most of my guild (aside from the couple friends who got me into the game) are strangers.

    But one of my guildies is this dude named Commander Budd, and Commander Budd is my hero. I don't know anything about Budd except that he is relentlessly upbeat and for some reason capitalizes the first letter of every word no matter what. So the chat will be like

    Commander Budd: We've Got This Guys
    Commander Budd: If You Take The Node On the Left I Think I Got The One In Center
    Commander Budd: I Was Wrong Lol
    Commander Budd: I Will Try Again We Can Do This!!

    I feel like we can all learn something from his example

    I wonder if this has something to do with people who take naps being less likely to use stimulants like caffeine to power through?

    Interestingly I can nap just fine after drinking coffee but actually getting to sleep at night after drinking caffeine is nearly impossible

    I had a weird thing last night. I went to bed a little early and woke up around 1am. Then I fell asleep at 6am and woke up at noon. Good thing it is the weekend.
