Life is falling into place for Sara Mednick. She recently earned a doctorate in psychology from Harvard University and landed a research position at the esteemed Salk Institute in La Jolla, Calif.
One problem, though. She still hasn't found a place for her office couch.
No, not the one featured in stereotypical scenes of the psychotherapist.
Mednick uses her office couch for daily napping.
"I love taking naps," Mednick said. "I did it all of the time at Harvard."
Mednick knows what you likely are thinking: that taking naps is a lazy person's habit.
Or that napping is a luxury reserved for academic types, professional athletes and freelance writers, among others with flexible schedules.
