Wondering how to power nap? Great! You've come to the napping queen!
Napping during the day improves productivity, to say the VERY least. A power nap does the body, mind and soul lots of good.
I come from a long line of nappers. Both of my parents take a nap
almost every single day and have for as long as I can remember.
Naturally, I followed in their foot steps and I also nap daily. The
benefits of naps are so positive that I couldn't imagine not taking
Below you'll find benefits of napping daily as well as how to find the time to implement this practice and my own personal napping tips. Happy napping!
There are fantastic physical and mental health benefits related to taking a daily power nap.
In my experience, naps improve my...
like a little
escape for my brain, because during the nap I allow my mind to shut off.
After all, the things I'm thinking about will be there when I wake up.
Physically, a nap gives my body a chance to relax, whether I'm on my feet all day or I'm hunched over at my computer for hours. There are a lot of studies and statistics that show the benefits of a daily snooze and tips on how to power nap, so check them out here!
There is a common misconception that a nap has to be this long activity that people claim they don't have time for, when it's in fact the opposite. It's like a fitness routine - you only need to do a little every day or every other day in order to reap the benefits.
What you do and where you work are not reasons to skip a power nap. I use to take power naps at
my desk when I worked for another company, and I also do it now working
from home. Whether it's in your car, at your desk or at home, get some shut eye in any quiet, available location.
If you keep track of the time that is
wasted on procrastination and/or any other time-sucking activities, I
guarantee it will be more than the suggested 20 or 30 minute nap. Take that wasted time and put it to good use...a power nap!
