Taking back nap time.
Whatever happened to nap time? Why is it not a part of our everyday lives? With our eyes open to the world and bombarded with colors, lights, people, images, scenery it is important to give our eyes and minds sufficient rest.
Dr. Sara Mednick wrote Take a Nap! Change Your Life. In this book she covers her research on napping and how it is an important aspect of our daily lives. Dr. Mednick’s research shows evidence that a siesta provides incredible physiological, psychological and cognitive benefits. Taking a nap will allow you to be fully alert, energetic and in a good mood all day long.
Now of course it may be impossible to take a nap in the middle of the day at your cubicle, but consider the possibility of naps on the weekends or even stoping in one of those napping spas. In New York City the YeloSpa offers a rang of napping times and types.
Go forth and nap!
