Embrace Power Naps to Reduce Stress

Naptime is back! In fact, taking a power nap can be just what you need to recharge and reduce your stress! Here are three good tips to try out today.

nap

  1. Limit the length. Keep naps under 30 minutes for better short-term alertness and performance. One study found that 10-minute naps are the most effective for immediate improvements. Longer rests can cause undesired post-nap grogginess.
  2. Select the right setting. Find a restful place to close your eyes. Make sure the temperature isn’t too hot or cold. Try to block out noise and light, if you can.
  3. Time it right. Avoid taking a nap too early or late in the day. Napping late may affect your sleep patterns and make it difficult to doze off at bedtime.
