Remember the good old days of kindergarten where everyone just napped? Remember arguing with your parents who just tried to tell you that you were tired? Closing your eyes to take a nap was like feeling the end of the world. Closing your eyes for a nap meant that you were never going to wake up or that you were going to miss everything and you couldn’t stand life without seeing everything. What we wouldn’t give to have those naps now that we are adults. Now, most don’t care what is going on or will gladly miss a moment if it means the joyous liberation of napping.
Napping on the job may be frowned upon, but the health benefits of an afternoon snooze can’t be denied. Recent studies show that a power nap of 20 minutes can be incredibly productive in your ability to be more alert, remember things better, and improves muscle memory. Sleep is also a great way to get your mind to relax and process information. Ideally a 60-minute nap is better as it helps enhance the processing of information and for repairing bones and muscles. Unfortunately, not all of us can sleep 60-90 minutes a day—also, that is dubbed the “lazy man’s nap”. Instead, we fight through the afternoon slump and work, work, work.
California recognizes that mental health is just as important as physical health. Mental health indicates how you are handling and coping with stress. There are five kinds of stress that influence your behavior, and subsequently, your performance during your job:
Each of these stresses can be manipulated for the worse in the workplace. For example, if you work in a fast paced environment that provides little to no support then you may crash and burn easier than a workplace that does.
