The Benefits of Napping
(...and better sleep habits)
Leading doctors and neuroscientists agree and have been endorsing the benefits of napping for years.
"The truth is, the power nap is the most effective way to rejuvenate your brain"
"People are actually getting the same [cognitive] benefit from a night of sleep, as they are from a daytime nap."
- Sara C. Mednick, PhD.
"Tired people are massively stressed ... sustained stress leads to suppressed immunity and tired people have higher rates of overall infection."
- Russell G. Foster, CBE, FRS FMedSci
While there are a little over half of a million articles covering the benefits of napping, they all boil down to this:
- Improved mental clarity and alertness
- Increased productivity and creativity
- Enhanced memory processing and learning
- Improved heart health and overall well-being
