Hide somewhere and take a nap at work

The Japanese have a word for strategically sleeping on the job: “inemuri,” roughly translated to “sleeping while present,” Tim Herrera writes.

To improve your productivity on the job, you should do the same.
In a study published in Nature Neuroscience, researchers tested subjects on their perceptual performance four times throughout the day. Performance deteriorated with each test, but subjects who took a 30-minute nap between tests stopped the deterioration in performance, and those who took a 60-minute nap even reversed it. 
“Naps had the same magnitude of benefits as full nights of sleep if they had a specific quality of nap,” said Sara Mednick, a co-author of the study and associate professor of psychology at the University of California, Riverside.
If you're really slow, here's some advice on how to nap. Sheesh.
