The Original Power Nap

The Original Power Nap

Ever wondered what’s the science behind napping?

This week’s Halloween special is all about naps!

A mid afternoon power nap has been shown to be more recuperative than a nap taken at other times of the day.

In fact, there’s a whole range of naps to choose from- some more effective than others. Check it out!

  1. The Nano-Nap– ever nodded off on someone’s shoulder on the train? These brief intervals (10-20 secs) of napping are still being debated on their effectiveness!
  2. The Micro-Nap – this one’s a beauty! 2-5 minutes to shred the sleepiness.
  3. The Mini-Nap – a go-to for athletes. Increases alertness, stamina, motor learning and motor performance in 5 – 20 mins!
  4. Wait for it………………..The Original Power Nap! (in 20 minutes)
