Get a perfect nap

Reactions :  
Getting the right amount of sleep can help you lose weight, look younger, and improve your sex life. A nap can actually give you some of the same benefits of a good night's sleep, may relieve pain, and helps keep your mind sharp throughout the day.

_- Turn off your phone

_- Dim the lights

_- Get comfortable

_- Check the room temperature

_- Schedule all your naps, make it a daily routine

_- Eat healthy at lunch (a glass of milk after lunch could help)

_- Use a timer : a 20 minutes nap is "power-nap" and a 60 to 90 minutes nap is a "restorative nap".

PS: You can buy a nap-kit: ear plugs, mp3 with relaxing songs, eye shades, a travel-pillow and an alarm clock

All these few tips approved by Michael Breus, a guy with a Ph.D.

I like napping in the afternoons and I would fall asleep watching TV.I never looked at the time and when I wake up it would feel like I had slept for about 2 hours until one find day I fell asleep in the lounge.When I woke up I mentioned something to my daughter to the effect of Wow That was a nice sleep and she asked me if I was mad because I had only been asleep about 20 minutes.My point is I have been power napping for years now and not knowing it(lol) and its just as good as the 2 hour siesta

@Yvette, that's awesome!! keep doing it.

I usually do restorative naps especially when I have a bad night

I've never been a nap person. I use to get trouble for staying awake during nap time in preschool. After reading this I am considering giving it a go again, but i would rather just get 8 hours of sleep at night...I'm getting close.

I never take a nap, but maybe I should because I'm dog tired now.
