How important is resting?

Today post Lunch I decided to take a 45 minute nap. I was having thoughts about what my office colleagues would think etc. But I decided to go ahead with it just the same.

One could discuss about the effect of that on the office motivation levels etc etc. But, after the nap I was really refereshed and the 3 hours post nap have been 100% productive.

For the kind of work that we are doing I feel we need such breaks to be able to deliver our best. Otherwise – the mind is jus not able to keep up with the information flow. This blog post on Zen Habits espouses the importance of rest...

And here is another post from New York Times which speaks about the Legitimate Urge to sleep in the afternoon.
