    Great article around the importance of sleep on sustainable performance - often the first thing to be sacrificed when we get 'busy'. Studies come out of the neuroscience world are showing that naps between 26 & 45 mins are having significant impacts on cognitive performance for up to 6 hours after the nap.

    The interesting thing on sleep pods- is whilst some organisations are starting to encourage it - in a high performing culture how accepted is it to actually use them or take the 'nap'
