Ladies, Here’s Why Your Boss Should Give You A Nap Break!

July 5, 2017

I’ll be the first to admit that I tend to get sleepy at work. Whether it’s trying to get going first thing in the morning, or that 3PM slump, some days focusing can be pretty rough.

And you wanna know what the problem is??

Us ladies are NOT sleeping enough, simply because we’re women.

Buuuuut, y tho?

It’s because the female brain is wired to need more sleep than men. Maybe just a measly 20 minutes more, but still! That’s 20 minutes more.

Yet, you can find us running around doing chores/errands/not getting shut eye, when we’re the ones who need it the most.

A sociologist found that women, working mothers in particular, give up both sleep and leisure time.

And even though these ladies are basically running on empty, they’re still doing all their necessary duties.  

So if you’re feeling drowsy during the work day, take a nap. Doooo it.

And if your boss asks, tell them that the New York Times said you needed to.
