WASHINGTON – Taking a nap is like rebooting your brain and for that employees must be given sometime to take a nap during office hours as it can boost the productivity and also can generate the revenue for the company.
Researchers of University of Michigan found that taking a nap may be an effective strategy to counteract impulsive behavior and to boost tolerance for frustration.
It is becoming increasingly common for people, especially adults, to not sleep an entire night. This can negatively impair a person’s attention span and memory, as well as contribute to fatigue.
According to researcher and doctoral student in the department of psychology Jennifer Goldschmied said, “Napping may be a beneficial intervention for individuals who are required to stay awake for a long period of time by enhancing the ability to persevere through difficult or frustrating tasks”.
Research carried out by examine 40 participants whose ages were from 18-50, maintained a consistent sleep schedule for three nights earlier to the test and examined how a brief nap affected adults emotional control.
They completed tasks on computers and answered questions about sleepiness, mood and impulsivity.
Participants were randomly assigned to a 60 minute nap opportunity or no-nap period that involved watching a nature video.
Participants who napped paid more time trying to solve a task and reported less impulsivity than the non-nappers who were less willing to endure frustration in order to complete it.
The results indicate that staying awake for a long period of time delays people from controlling negative emotional responses.
Research results that employers may find their employees more productive when the workplace has nap pods or extended break times are offered.
