- Sleeping at work… do you..?
I just did. First time ever in the designated ‘sleep room’.
I now feel bad from both the grogginess that accompanies a 20 min power nap, and also for basically slacking off on work time (hi singletrack forum). I snuck out rather sheepishly
I however may do it again tomorrow, depends on if i get on the beers tonight or have another heavy lunch. I mean there is a sleep room for a reason right?Posted 4 months agoHob NobMember
Yep – have been known to. Do the approach of a coffee & a 20 minute post lunch snooze.
I got into the habit of it when I smashed myself up falling off my bike & I was getting terrible sleep at night because I was in pain/uncomfortable, so I found it was the only way to get me through the day.
Stuck with it & i’m a fan – don’t get that horrible graveyard shift feel from about 2-4pm now 🙂Posted 4 months agoandrewhMember
Micronaps at my desk all the time! Really funny the little dreams you can have in a few seconds.
Sounds very familiar.
My first day at old work a very hungover colleague spent her lunch break sleeping on the floor under her desk. I was much more civilised, was working the day after Relentless, booked the meeting room for lunchtime and just went in there with a pillowPosted 4 months agomaccruiskeenSubscriber
On work days that involve a lot of driving I’ll usually plan for a sleep stop. I lie across the seats of the van but can be a bit prone to cramp so end up slicking my legs out the window.
Had a sleep while parked on a meter in Glasgow once. Set a reminder to wake me up before the ticket expired. But the sleep was so gorgeous I ended up just feeding the meter every 20 mins and having another snooze. It got quite expensivePosted 4 months agoNobeerinthefridgeSubscriber
When I used to do nights, yes, every night I’d sleep through my ‘lunch’ break for 0330 to 0400.
Weirdly, some times you woke up feeling refreshed, but other times (the majority I’d say) I’d wake up feeling worse, cod and hungry too. Thank F I don’t have to do nights any more.Posted 4 months agoglobaltiMember
My late Irish buddy who was a solicitor used to lie down on the floor for a nap at lunch time, the story was that they got a new secretary and she thought he was dead. But you’d believe any story about him because he was so funny.
I sometimes nip out in the car and park in a quiet corner of a nearby car park for a 10 minute nap, it’s very nice. Weekends at home I nap after lunch.
In the bad old days of British manufacturing there were legends about entire shifts at British Leyland being found asleep at night.Posted 4 months agojamesozMember
Do it loads. I have very random work times, might not be able to start a job till 6pm after a 3pm job in London. The jobs are usually around an hour so not worth leaving the city.
Monday I have a 4am job and another job early pm. I may put my camping bed in the back of the Transit rather than my bike which is my other way of killing time between jobs.Posted 4 months ago
