The Power of 20 Minutes.


Posted by Swati S.

Research shows that 20 minutes is just the right time to have a relaxing power nap. It wakes you up feeling active and refreshed. This is something that I have actually experienced. Taking 20 minutes off in the afternoon makes me more productive for the rest of the day. It is nice to see research supporting it.

The Spaniards do it. The Italians do it. I love taking the moment to get a cat nap. Like around 2 or 3 in the afternoon -- very rejuvenating for the rest of the day.

I wrote about what I consider to be the one true ingredient for successful power napping here:

Absolutely! Everyone from Leonardo da Vinci to Einstein understood the refreshing power of a little catnap. You don't even need to overdo it--to me, 10-20 minutes lying supine (maybe with a little background relaxation music) always makes me feel like I've gotten about an hour of sleep.
