Career columnist Penelope Trunk has a great idea in her column this week: The caffeine nap. Drink a cup of coffee, then immediately take a short 15-minute nap. By the time you’re done napping, the caffeine is kicking in and you can wake up quickly, alert and refreshed.
I would make a cup of tea, take it back to my desk and let it steep while I put my head on my wrist rest. Wake up, slug the tea back and go!
