Re: Did you know taking a nap is good for you?

Yes, I take naps regularly. If I can get even 20 minutes in, I feel refreshed and ready to face the rest of the day! If I slept poorly the night before, I try to get in a 2 hour nap. I also like to keep my room dark and cool. I always sleep with a fan on and facing me. I love the air brushing my face.

The 'trick' is to take a short one. Many of us, as we get older, can fall asleep, seemingly within minutes, for a nap. You need to set an alarm and limit yourself to 15-20 minutes. This used to be called a 'power nap' that some corporations urged, and provided a space for, in their corporate buildings.

No I didn't.  I don't take naps because then I can't sleep at night.  Any suggestions?

I do love to Nap as it give me a pleasant luxury or you can say a short of a mini-vacation. It helps to get some relaxation and rejuvenation. It restore alertness, enhance performance, and reduce mistakes and accidents. Study states that 40-minute nap improves the performance by 34% and alertness 100%.

Went out for a 35 mile bike ride with other cyclists. Had my camel water pack as temperature was climbing from the 80's to the hundreds. When I came home took a nap which proved the ideal thing to do. Refreshed I proceeded to do some chores and shopping.

 Somehow it "resets" my brain, but as someone else said, too long a nap leaves you feeling groggy.
