8 SECRET Places You Can Sneak A Quick POWER NAP During Lunch Hour In Singapore

Don't fight the midday slump!
07 August 2019

A power nap might just be what you need to recharge and be more productive.

Did you know that Singaporeans have one of the longest working hours globally? 45.9 hours per week, to be exact, which means an average of more than nine hours per day. It’s no wonder that most of us working here are trudging to and from work every day, drained.

The concept of siestas may be unusual and even frowned upon in Singapore, where we are expected to be productive all the time during working hours. But a midday power nap can actually make us more productive at work, even more than your go-to cup of caffeine. Just a twenty to thirty minute nap in the middle of the day can provide our bodies with some much-needed rest.

Instead of forcing ourselves to sit at our desks and churn out work on a sleep-addled brain, a nap can give us an energy boost, improving our mental alertness, concentration and mood. It’s a far healthier way of fighting exhaustion and burnout than chugging down energy drinks and coffee.

So if you need some shut-eye after working overtime the previous night or experiencing post-lunch food coma, check out these places where you can squeeze in an uninterrupted midday nap.
