7 Steps to the Perfect Nap (Infographic)
When it comes to napping, you can’t just close your eyes and hope for the best. You have to think it out.
Napping is associated with numerous health benefits, including a lower risk of death from heart disease, lower blood pressure, and various psychological benefits. It can also be a boom for productivity, such as increased alertness and better concentration.
However, not all naps are created equal.
A 20 to 30 minute nap is considered the optimal nap time because you enter the much coveted stage 2 sleep, which enhances alertness and concentration, and improves motor skills. Most importantly, you don’t enter deep sleep and therefore won’t wake up groggy and unproductive.
