Sometimes, being overachieving and fabulous means you get a bit stretched too thin. Like, if, say, you’re working 250 hours, running a blog, planning a wedding 300 miles away, and trying to diet/exercise well in the meantime. (This, of course, relates to NO ONE we know.) Anyway, sometimes push comes to shove and exhaustion overwhelms you — and it’s only 3 PM and you’ve got hours to go before you can even THINK of heading home.
We don’t know of anyone who regularly schedules these things, but plenty of our friends — including us — have taken a cat nap or two at the office. The only rule we’ve really heard of is to make sure your desk is free of paper clips — those suckers stick to your forehead like nobody’s business — but otherwise, we’ve found that everyone’s got their own system. What’s your routine? Do you make up some excuse for your secretary or just turn the ringer off the phone, lock the door, and put your head down? Do you stretch out on the floor or keep your head on the desk? Have you brought supplies in — blankets, couches, sleepytime mask — to make naptime go more smoothly? Also, what’s your average snoozefest at the office? (We like to stick to the 20 minute “power nap.”)
