Regrettably, I can't seem to nap for less than 3 hours, and it takes more than 20 minutes for me to fall asleep.

Your boss sounds like a micromanager. I haven't seen my boss for a week.

Yeah perfect nap time for me is 1-3 hours. I can fall asleep pretty easily though.

I sleep on breaks and lunch every work day.  I don't fall asleep at my desk anymore.

Protip: Chug a coffee then nap for 15 minutes.

Also nut up. Naps are for old people and children.

Same as me. My "naps" are called going to bed.

Same here. My wife is a champ though. She can nap at red lights and be ready to go by the time it turns green.

I hit the snooze button for more than 10-20 minutes. Naps are an hour and a half minimum.

Thinks this thread is getting a little too nappy.

I think that if someone's tired enough to actually fall asleep at work, you should just give them 20 minutes to take the "refreshing nap" they're talking about.  Heck, if you're that tired, you're not working, you're nodding off.

I'm spoiled though, since I work from home.  I can take a nap just by kicking the recliner back to full.  And it really helps my productivity afterwards to have taken the break.  I'm salaried, does it matter if I take 20 minutes to take a nap that I make up for later?  If anything, I'd encourage team members to do the same.

My nephews think I'm crazy when I tell them that, someday, they'll reach an age when all they'll need to have a good day is a good poop and a good nap

/just had a good poop, about to take a nap

When I worked the overnight shift I would take a 15 minute nap if I found myself falling asleep. Usually one nap in the middle of the shift would pick me right up without the fuzzyness.

15 minutes does it for me. If I'm tired enough to nap, I'll drop off in seconds.

Yes. If you are getting tired during the day you are doing something wrong.
