That's a very nice, one-page overview - where's it from?

A fiend of mine was a sleep consultant for companies - helping to plan odd shift schedules etc. - so I already knew most of this from him.

Naps haven't worked quite as well for me in the past, but that may be because I tend to oversleep the 45 minute window, or perhaps I just get to the groggy slow wave sleep stage faster.

What has helped a lot for me, is if I have to do an all-nighter for an important project, I try to get an hour and a half of sleep in, so I get at least one full sleep cycle. I also make sure I get some sun on my face in the morning, so my biological clock doesn't get confused.
