Sleeping On The Job: The Quarantine Data Is In

Catching a few Z’s while at work? Turns out you aren’t the only one.

Right now, most of the workforce is spending their nine to five in the comfort of their own home. Unfortunately, with that, comes the comfort of home. So, to find out how many people are spending their time napping, surveyed two thousand workers.

Turns out one in three is using their current situation to catch-up on some much-needed shut-eye. According to the survey, North Dakota, Alaska and Nebraska have more than half their workers sleeping on the clock.

Meanwhile, no one in Vermont, Wyoming or Montana admitted to it. The survey also found that napping isn’t the only thing people are doing while working from home. Some of the other top answers included caring for or spending time with pets, daydreaming and applying for other jobs.

But according to the experts, extracurricular activities such as napping might not be the worst way to spend your time. If you are exhausted a quick nap might be what you need for a kick-start and to help you meet your deadlines. Now it’s just easier to recharge.
