Naps provide numerous benefits, as long as they aren’t too long. Naps that are about 10 to 30 minutes in length improve mood, alertness, and performance—both mentally and physically. The alertness that naps provide can last for a few hours time. Naps of 10 minutes in length provide the most benefit of improved cognitive performance and reduced sleepiness. Naps also provide relaxation and rejuvenation.
Celebrate nap day by taking a nap! In order to reap its benefits, make sure it’s about 10 to 30 minutes long. It’s a good idea to make sure you have a good sleep environment too, with good room temperature, and limited light and noise. Also, make sure that you aren’t napping too close to the morning or evening. Besides napping in your bed, perhaps you could nap in a chaise lounge chair or a hammock. Even though it may not be the best for light or noise, napping on a towel at the beach may be a good option as well.
