We all love sleeping, don’t we? It is that precious ammo for our rest that we never can get enough. Considering how adult life screws us around and we find ourselves changing our identities at 3 am, the first and most precious thing that we end up losing are our hours of sleep. And the worst part is you cannot even explain it to your boss or that co-worker who cannot stop talking to you. (Seriously Karen, lay off for a while!).
But did you know that having an existential crisis at 2 or 3 am (mine always hits around those hours) can still get you a good sleep? You just have to tune your knob in such a way that you end up sleeping in the office or wherever you work. Sleep has no boundaries or proper places. When you gotta sleep, you will end up sleeping in the middle of the road if it comes to that. And when you cannot sleep, you won’t even if you end up getting a bed from the heavens above. But enough of that. Follow this article for life changing advice about how to sleep in such a way that your boss will never find you dozing off. We will call it the sneak nap! Besides, those 10 minutes nap are the best five hours your day is going to have.
- Sleep in the Toilet
What’s the best way to sleep in such a way where nobody will be able to disturb you? Make an excuse that you have a really loose stomach, and if you are not allowed to go to the washroom for at least an hour or two, the entire office will suffer the consequences. Then, go and have your power nap. Do make sure that you carry a fragrance with you when you enter that stinky place. Otherwise you will be fighting poop monsters in your nightmares.
- Sleep in Your Car
Sleep has a messy way of coming when you are least expecting it. My suggestion? Go to your office at least an hour early and when the sleep monster comes, vanquish it in your parked car. Just make sure to set the alarm properly. During the midday, you can make an excuse that you forgot something really important like your laptop, or identity and without it, you cannot function. Then go in the car and sleep like you have never slept before. In a way you didn’t.
- Relieve Yourself in the Abandoned or Unused Rooms
Some offices have a lot of unconstructed buildings in their vicinity. You can go there and have the time of your life! Or you can say that you cannot work without a creative brainstorming all by yourself and then find the room which is currently unused at the moment. Go there and have a sound sleep. Always make sure you carry your alarm with you otherwise you will end up spending a night locked in your building or waking up with an angry boss over your face.
- Nap in the Closet/Store
Got a closet or compartmentalized room that is used as a store or a closet where everyone hangs the clothes. That is the spot where you will be sleeping and not getting the heat for it. Just make sure that you can sleep really well while being surrounded with clothes or extra stuff nobody is going to use. Also, depending on how stinky that place is, make sure to carry fragrance.
- Under Your Desk
What is that one place where nobody will expect you to be? Where you can spend a considerably large amount of time and nobody will even bat an eye? Under your desk! That’s right! Adjust under your desk and rest your head against the bottom of the table or chair and then roam the valley of the slumber. Just make sure that you adjust yourself in such a way that nobody knows whether the earth swallowed you or the sky devoured you.
