Cat nap…

A little napping goes a long, long way…

Folks at NASA studied naps to ensure sleepy pilots weren’t putting selves, passengers at risk. Business Insider shared bottom-line takeaways – space agency found pilots who slept for 26 minutes showed alertness improvements by 54%, job performance improvements by 34%, compared to pilots who didn’t nap. 

When it comes to naps, short is generally better. 26 minutes! NASA’s ultimate recommendation is power naps 15-20 minutes long. Simply resting quietly with eyes shut for similar periods of time recharges, refreshes. National Sleep Foundation notes quiet wakefulness can give brain cells, muscles, organs a break reducing stress, enhances moods, alertness, boosts positive creativity.

Time for a cat nap…
