I usually fold my arms on the desk and sleep with my head down, you have to be careful to make sure you let enough oxygen through and also to not cut circulation from your arm for too long. If I sleep for too long this way my arms become numb, but sometimes I'm so tired I just don't care =)



This is so unnecessary and demeaning. At least bring along one of those little bean-bag pillows you could prop your head on. But the real solution is for the company to provide sleeping facilities at work and not to work their employees to the point of exhaustion and sleep deprivation.


not to work their employees to the point of exhaustion and sleep deprivation.

Genuinely curious: How much of the sleep deprivation is due to employment practices, and how much is due to, say, American cultural values? Are we sleeping less because our employers or our social lives demand more?


One hour+ commute, enough time to prep and eat or go out and eat food, enough time at night to not go bed right after eating, not good for your health, squeeze in an hour of exercise per day, a tiny bit of social interaction with friends and/or family, equals less than 8 (some times even less than 7) hours of sleep. And over the long term for most people 6 hours a night results in sleep deprivation.

But some are lucky genetic mutants. I am not one of them.
