Nap time

June 13, 2006

For some reason, I keep running across things about sleep. Like these sleep facts: Did you know that “17 hours of sustained wakefulness can lead to a decrease in physical and mental performance equivalent to a blood alcohol level of 0.05 (legally drunk)”? Or that people who spend five or more hours a day at a computer are more likely to be insomniacs? (So that’s my problem!)

But really, it could be a problem, especially since people generally don’t sleep as well on the road (or at meetings—well, not at the meeting, but away from home for one. You know what I mean). Take those already sleep-deprived attendees to a reception and give them alcohol, and you could have a problem on your hands. I don’t know what we can do about it—maybe build in a nap time after the luncheon?—but thought you’d like to know, anyway.
