Attitude Adjustment: After a nap, You will be less impulsive and better able to deal with anger — in other words, you will be in a better mood. Napping kills the crankiness.

How to Smart Nap
You’ve already agreed that napping sounds like a plan. If you’re going to try napping, do it right. It’s not as easy as nodding off any time you feel an inkling to yawn.
When: Mid-afternoon (around 3 PM) is best. Don’t sleep too late in the day, or at night you will be wide awake and ruin your routine at bedtime.
Where: Find a peaceful, cool place to doze. Maybe during a break in your car, if you don’t want the boss to catch you snoozing. (That said, many businesses are starting to wise up by letting employees lie down for a break.)
How Long: You don’t want to wake up in the middle of a deep sleep, or you’re going to be even more groggy than when you started. For a short nap, Hold it to 20 minutes
Note: If you are still planning on a cup of coffee to supplement your sleep, drink it before you nod off. Caffeine takes time to activate, and it will likely kick in right as you wake up from a short snooze.
