Why I NEED A NAP
A nap is a short period of sleep, typically taken during daylight hours as an adjunct to the usual nocturnal sleep period. Naps are most often taken as a response to drowsiness during waking hours. In most cultures, most working adults are not expected to sleep during the day and napping on the job is widely considered unacceptable. Other cultures (especially those in hot climates) serve their largest meals at midday, with allowance for a nap period (siesta) afterwards before returning to work.
You would be surprised if I tell you that you need nap time for a sound mind and this is very true. This also depends on how or when you take the nap.
Types of Nap
1. Nano Nap (10 – 20 seconds)
2. Micro Nap ( 2 – 5 minutes)
3. Mini Nap (5 – 20 minutes)
4. Power-sized Nap ( 20 minutes)
5. Lazyman Nap (50 – 90 minutes)
1) Nap time increases alertness
2) Improves learning and working memory.
3) Helps retain information better.
4) Heightens creativity by bringing up ideas
5) Improves sensory activity
6) Growth occurs because hormones are released during sleep
7) Nap improves mood (Serotonine is discharged)
8) It saves money ( Lolz)
Some great men we knew never joked with their nap time and some of them were John F. Kennedy– he took lunch in bed and took a nap immediately after that, Leornado da Vinci took nap every day, the multibillionaire John D. Rockfeller took his nap well and seriously. Thomas Edison took his nap so much that he became ashamed of his napping habit but looking at them, you would understand what those little minutes they took out to rest did to them; they were something out of the ordinary.
Having stated the types and importance of Nap time, it is important you try to make it a habit but I suggest you not try the lazyman nap always because it is as the name implies– for lazy men!
