Napping

With the Thanksgiving festivities finished, did anyone take a nap after their big meal? I know I wanted to after eating that amazing turkey and playing with my little cousins. The holiday season is a great time to sit back and relax and enjoy the company of family and friends. Naps are important to take during the day especially after a long, hard day.

 

Here are some tips and benefits to taking naps:

Tips:

  • Short naps should be 20-30 minutes long to help improve your alertness and performance without feeling groggy.
  • Find a restful place to lie down to avoid any unnecessary noise and light
  • Keep the room at a comfortable temperature
  • Try to avoid taking a nap later in the day to prevent abnormal sleep patterns and make it difficult to fall asleep at your normal bedtime.

 

Benefits:

  • Can restore and increase alertness directly following the nap
  • Enhance your performance
  • Reduce mistakes and accidents.
  • Help with those affected by narcolepsy
  • Provides relaxation and rejuvenation
  • Can be like a mini vacation
  • Boosts productivity
  • Improves heart health
  • Elevates mood
  • Relieves stress and boosts immune system
  • Improves memory and learning

 

Now go and enjoy a well-deserved nap.
