Naps are not just for toddlers! Science has shown that naps can help the brain restore and refresh itself, just in the span of 15 or 20 minutes. Adults regularly miss out on a solid night’s sleep, so a nap is the best bet to feel energized and refreshed.
When I was in Cambodia it was refreshing for me to experience Siesta time when just about everyone would take a nap somewhere between the hours of 12 and 4 pm. You would need great luck if you wanted to get anything done in that 4-hour period because most everyone; from the mobi driver to the shop keeper was napping (literally). No really! I have pictures of mobi drivers pulled to the side of the road, feet kicked up and sound asleep with a hat pulled down over their faces. (See below.)
Many workplaces in the States are now offering nap rooms for their employees, recognizing the benefits of having happy, healthy, and creative employees. Why not join the nap revolution and get some extra zzzz’s? Your brain and body will love your for it!
Your’s on the journey,
