Taking a Nap Break Instead of a Coffee Break

Some companies have created "quiet rooms" for their sleepy employees

McCoy and company surveyed more than 300 HR managers and discovered that at least 66% of their companies had boosted their health and wellness program over the past five years. Also, these companies have installed “quiet rooms” where sleepy employees can meditate, nap or do other rejuvenating activities.

”We’re seeing more offices providing a place where employees can rest, recharge or just get out of the fluorescent lighting,” McCoy said.

Thinking about fluorescent lighting leads into an interesting study about office lighting. Researchers proved that people who do not have windows in their workplace have more physical problems and issues with sleep than those in offices with natural light.
