Taking a nap in the middle of the day does not imply laziness. Far from it… taking strategic naps has been shown to increase productivity and mental awareness.

British Airways (of all people!) has an interesting page up about taking strategic naps. May favorite part was a quote from Winston Churchill himself…

“You must sleep sometime between lunch and dinner, and no halfway measures. Take off your clothes and get into bed. That’s what I always do. Don’t think you will be doing less work because you sleep during the day. That’s a foolish notion held by people who have no imagination. You will be able to accomplish more. You get two days in one – well at least one and a half, I’m sure. When the war started, I had to sleep during the day, because it was the only way I could cope with my responsibilities.”
(Anthony, W., The Art of Napping, New York: Larson Publications 1997, p19)

Who am I to disagree? I’m off to bed…
