The National Sleep Foundation released some sleepy survey results yesterday. About one third of the 1,000 participants admitted to falling asleep or being on the verge of sleeping on the job during the past month. The average weeknight's sleep for the respondents was six hours and 40 minutes, and ironically most named work as the culprit for what keeps them from sleeping.
Reading this immediately reminded me of the episode of Seinfeld when George finds a way to sleep under his desk — he just lays on his back and pulls in the chair. He even has a shelf added to hold an alarm clock. I can't say that I wake up feeling refreshed each morning, but I've never come close to sleeping at work. What about you?
