Incorporating even a short daily nap into your routine can provide you with huge benefits, according to JD Journal.
The National Sleep Foundation has said that our pattern of sleeping all night and staying awake all day may not even be our most natural way of sleeping. Instead it is merely a schedule developed over time by society. More than 85% of mammals are actually polyphasic sleepers.
This means that they sleep for intermittent periods throughout the day, rather than splitting each day into two. While completely changing sleeping habits isn’t something most working adults can do, short 20-30 minute power naps have been shown to be incredibly beneficial, especially when so many of us are sleep deprived.
It may seem difficult to add a nap into your day, but you might consider napping worth your time when you know the positive impact.
