Napping is known to have a range of benefits!  

  • Mood booster - don't become that cranky toddler! Lack of sleep can cause the same crankiness in adults, we have just learned to not throw tantrums.
  • Zaps stress - even just laying down for 20 minutes can help you relax, The National Sleep Foundation recommends calling it a 'mini-vacation'. 
  • Increases creativity - the right side of your brain is strongly linked to your creativity and becomes more active in REM. So take a longer naps and wake up with the answer to something that's been bugging you!
  • Boosts productivity - a short power nap can be better than an afternoon cup of coffee!
  • Boosts alertness  - studies have shown that even just 10 minutes can help you feel more alert during your work day! 

I am a huge advocate of siestas and now hopefully you are too! 

Find some time for yourself today, I promise you won't regret it.
