Have you taken a cat nap lately?
Sleep experts have found that daytime naps can improve many things: increase alertness, boost creativity, reduce stress, improve perception, stamina, motor skills and accuracy, enhance your sex life, aid in weight loss, reduce the risk of heart attack, brighten your mood and boost memory.
How to Power Nap
• One of the keys to power napping (also known as “cat napping” in the non-work world) is to keep them short.
• Many experts say 10 to 20 minutes is the ideal duration to bolster energy and heighten alertness.
• Too long a nap can risk grogginess.
• The benefits of a nap can even last for several hours.
