If the answer is no, you are not alone. Napping at work is something that might become encouraged by employers in the future. 

BrightHR has introduced ‘nap-time’ for its employees in a bid to boost productivity. They have created a new sleep room in its Manchester city centre office to allow staff to take part in a pioneering new study to test the power of napping on the job. 

Will this be a success? That is something that can't quite be answered yet, however
sleep expert Dr. Nerina Ramlakhan​ has these top tips for napping at work:

Dont nap for more than 20 minutes

Remove all technology from the room

Keep lighting dim but not completely dark to avoid deep sleep

Treat it as a rest, not a sleep

3pm is the optimum nap time
