Perfecting Your Nap

I don’t know anybody who has this luxury these days. So many folks are working two or even three jobs. There’s a reason the most sleep deprived don’t have the time for a power nap. Nonetheless, sleep experts now say the ideal time of day to get your body re-energized with a nap is between 1 and 4 in the afternoon. (Wait a minute. That’s almost half our show!)

How long is the right nap? Experts say a nap of 10 to 20 minutes will give you the right boost of alertness and energy. But stretching it to 30 minutes is counter productive and will leave you feeling groggy and out of it. However, if you had the time, going 90 minutes will increase memory and creativity. All this according to a brief report on the Today Show.

How long would you consider the perfect nap? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
