Napping can Dramatically Increase Learning, Memory, Awareness, and More

According to experts, 10 to 20 minutes is quite enough to refresh your mind and increase your energy and alertness.  The sleep isn’t as deep as longer naps and you’re able to get right back at your day immediately after waking up. If you nap for 30 minutes you may deal with a 30 minute grogginess period because you wake up just as your body started entering a deeper stage of sleep.  The same can be said if you sleep for an hour, but on the other hand, these 60 minute naps provide an excellent memory boost. The longest naps— lasting about 90 minutes—are recommended  for those people who just don’t get enough sleep at night. Since it’s a complete sleep cycle, it can improve emotional memory and creativity.
