The power nap

In today's fast-paced world, people are often under pressure to be productive and meet their daily goals. I know in my case, I have tons on my plate and cram a lot in the day.

Long work hours, deadlines, and stress can take a toll on one's health and well-being.

One way to deal with this is to crank it up with caffeine or energy drinks.


The power nap.

A power nap is a short sleep that typically lasts between 10 to 30 minutes. It is a natural and effective way to refresh your mind and body, increase productivity, and improve one's overall health and mood.

Over the last fifty or so years, I have managed to grab a 20-minute power nab every single day. It's the one way I have found to get more out of life, whether I am having fun or working hard.

Taking a power nap can help you regain focus and alertness, making you more productive for the rest of the day. Studies have shown that power naps can improve cognitive function, memory retention, and decision-making skills. Power naps can also help reduce stress levels because, during sleep, the body produces less cortisol, a hormone that is associated with stress.

From everything I have read, power naps improve cardiovascular health, reduce inflammation, and lower the risk of developing chronic diseases. Regular napping is said to also help boost your immune system, making you less susceptible to illness.

Bottom line. If you want to get the most out of your day, it's better to push reset than go into overdrive.
