To nap or not to nap?

by Michael Polzella

I love napping and wish my office had a comfy couch. While there are drawbacks to napping, such as waking up feeling groggy, or napping so long that it interferes with your nighttime sleep, there are also some benefits:

– Improved mood: You are rested and better able to deal with issues.

– Improved performance: You have better reaction time and memory.

– Increased alertness: You become more aware and ready to act.

– Reduced fatigue: You just feel better.

An effective nap should be 15-20 minutes during mid-afternoon in a quiet setting. Allow yourself time to wake up before resuming activities.
