Feel like napping? Then you probably should. It’s National Napping Day (wow, who knew?), yes, but you don’t need an arbitrary holiday to remind you that there are advantages to getting a little shut-eye during the day. But what kind of napping should you do? Wait, what? There’s more than one kind?

You bet there are. Here are the three types of napping you could be doing:

  • Habitual napping occurs when the sleeper (you) takes a nap at the same time every day. Think “nap time” at day care, or, for you, “nap time” at (or under) your desk.
  • Planned napping is calculated in a good way. This is the kind of nap you’d take before you get sleepy, which will aid in helping you stay up later (if you must). Some call this the “disco nap.”
  • Emergency napping is for those oh-my-god-i’m-so-tired-I-could-zzz moments. This is ideal in situations where you need to sleep to perform tasks safely, like driving a car or operating machinery.

Now that you’re up to speed on napping stylehere’s why you should convince your boss that it is a good idea. Essentially, these tips will guide you on your way to getting permission to take a little nap during the workday. You are so very welcome:
