Wow. It’s been a while since I’ve updated everything — sorry.
I’ve been very busy alternating being away (conferences, holidays), being sick, and doing a lot of work. Now that I’ve submitted some papers, things are calmer.
One of my current contracts is coming to an end. I am a little concerned about what will come next, and whether I’ll be able to get adequate accommodation. Having a flexible schedule has been crucial for my ability to be productive this year, despite frequent viruses and bouts of debilitating fatigue.
Along those lines, here are two articles about the importance of allowing or encouraging naps during the workday. If it enhances the productivity of healthy people, imagine what it could do for those of us who have to cut our workdays short because of fatigue!
- Recent research showing the importance of sleep encouraged The Huffington Post to allow employees to nap at work.
- Sleeping at work is also becoming a productivity-enhancing trend in Japan.
