News You Can Use — or Snooze

By February 14, 2007General

We continue here our tradition of bringing you the most up-to-date and useful news that we can bring.

According to this WaPo story, a study published this week in the Archives of Internal Medicine (unfortunately our subscription lapsed right after the swimsuit issue) finds that people who napped at least three times a week at the office, for at least 30 minutes, had a 37 percent lower chance of dying from heart attacks or heart disease than those who managed to stay awake through their entire workdays. Like we didn’t know this already.

How much more evidence do you need? So get comfy in that cubicle, prop your feet up, but please don’t snore. If you find yourself sleeping more than you’re awake at your job, probably time to dial it back a little.

Sweet dreams!
