Health Tip: Nap to Feel More Rested

By on September 20, 2010

Our careers and busy lifestyles are leaving many of us sleep deprived.

The National Sleep Foundation says there’s nothing wrong with a daily nap to help you feel more relaxed and rested. It offers these recommendations:

  • A nap should last no longer than 30 minutes.
  • Nap in an environment that’s cool, dark and quiet.
  • Don’t nap too late in the day. Doing so could interfere with bedtime.
  • Don’t try to nap too early in the day, as your body may not welcome more sleep so soon after you woke up.
