In many countries around the world, people take a nap every afternoon. Really! All the stores and businesses shut down for a few hours so people can take naps. Siestas make sense because we are actually designed to sleep twice a day. Taking naps is proven to increase alertness and enhance performance throughout the day.* Based on the rhythm of life, our bodies usually need naps between 2 and 3 p.m.
Take a power nap today for 10 to 20 minutes. Notice your energy surge after the nap. You may want to do it again tomorrow.
Express your love today!
