I’m a writer. There are times when my job requires me to work ’til the wee hours of the morning. During times like these, I tend to take naps. Power naps to be specific. I usually take it after lunch. A power nap which is my favorite, only takes 10 – 20 minutes; making it ideal because I could go back to my work desk immediately after the short rest without feeling groggy.

Talking about naps and its benefits, I discovered some interesting information. Companies like The Huffington Post, Procter & Gamble and Google have invested on putting up what they fondly call “nap rooms” equipped with slick recliners for employees. These companies want workers to be rejuvenated on middays with a short nap. Now, how cool is that?

Additionally, more and more US citizents fail to get sufficient sleep, so some companies like Nationwide Planning Associates have built “nap quarters” for workers to have some ZZz’s with the hope of boosting their productivity at work.

In our Infographic, we show you how to take a nap that fits your needs. In other words, a perfect nap. Should you have a 20-minute, 30-minute, 60-minute, or 90-minute nap? Find out below.
