To nap or not to nap?

To nap or not to nap?

March 14, 2015

Is napping part of your nature? While midday sleeping may be frowned upon or viewed as lazy, the National Sleep Foundation reports that a short nap of 20 to 30 minutes may be beneficial. A quality nap can improve mood, alertness and performance. To make the most of a nap, the National Sleep Foundation suggests:
  • Keep naps to 20 to 30 minutes for short-term alertness.
  • Ensure the room temperature is cool and comfortable. Thermo-regulating bedding can help with this step.
  • Take naps earlier in the day to avoid disrupting sleep patterns.
While naps can be a good midday fix, they're not the solution for inadequate sleep. Simple solutions like a quality pillow can help good, quality sleep becomes a nightly habit.
