Is there right way to nap when you are working from home?
When working from home it is difficult to get into a healthy routine. Many of us end up glued to our work and don’t take the breaks we need.
It is easier to be inactive as the toilet is closer and the walk to get a coffee is shorter. There is no lunchtime gym class and the boundaries between work and home become blurred.
One of the joys I quickly found when working from home was being able to get a nap in during the day. Many people have told us the same, they have nowhere to nap at work but they love to have a nap when they work from home and it does wonders for their productivity.
As I’ve started to discover, napping regularly is part of a healthy lifestyle and if done right is great for your productivity, creativity, and health. Now many of us are working from home making this a great chance to perfect and improve our napping habits.

At the beginning these days were few and far between but as many workplaces adapt and made them mandatory I found myself working from home regularly. I started to revisit my napping at home habits and improve them as I had the luxury of doing so more frequently.
