Office naps boost productivity, kill frustration

Tue, Jun 30, 2015, 12:01 PM
New York, June 30: Employees must be allowed to take short naps during office hours as this will boost productivity and generate more revenue for the company, a study says.

Short naps are an effective strategy to counteract impulsive behaviour and boost tolerance for frustration at work, researchers from the University of Michigan found.

"Napping may be a beneficial intervention for individuals who are required to stay awake for long period of time by enhancing the ability to persevere through difficult or frustrating tasks," said researcher Jennifer Goldschmied, doctoral student in the department of psychology.

Employers may find their employees more productive when the workplace has nap pods or extended break times are offered.

The researchers examined how a brief nap affected adults' emotional control.
