Nap Your Way to Health

Research has shown that taking naps in the afternoon has surprising health benefits, such as improving your heart health and longevity. A study in 2007 showed that those who took naps were 40 percent less likely to die of heart diseases. Also, having a 45-minute nap was shown to lower blood pressure and improves cardiovascular recovery after a stressful situation. Other ways that naps are beneficial are: they help you to avoid weight gain, they can enhance sexual health, they boost your memory and creativity, and they can also improve your alertness.[1]

Try to take a nap around 1pm when energy levels start to diminish. Avoid taking naps after 3pm, as it can interfere with your sleep cycle.
