The Napping Wisdom

This fast paced world is not nap friendly.  The saying “Some sleep five hours, nature requires seven, laziness nine and wickedness eleven” shows our regard for sleep.

When one is caught sleeping even during his free time, people are quick to judge him as lazy.  What many don’t realize is that a 15-minute nap can actually do wonders in our busy waking hours whatever activity we opt to do.  Napping can increase productivity for it gives us a chance to “recharge” that can result to more vigor and clarity of mind.  The way not to fall asleep on the job is to take naps when you need them. 

Sleeping 15-minutes to 2 hours in the early afternoon can reduce stress and improve alertness.
A nap is like a snack on sleep.  We do this when studying or working for long hours and this certainly helps in reinvigorating us.  There is an exquisite pleasure in giving oneself over to drowsiness.  Napping is one of the few pleasures left that are not life threatening.  One who is drowsy but tolerates his feelings usually suffers from headaches and unconsciousness.

So the next time you fall into sleep, don’t feel guilty.  Nap is one of the best things in life for free!

I remember that during my employment time we used our break time to sleep at our desk after that it feels refresh like you said...<3

I agree. A short 'siesta' would make us feel recharged and ready for more tasks ahead :) especially for us bloggers who are fond of working at night.

Sometimes, I battle the nap. because I can't sleep at night. especially when I am not working during winter season. But when I work during summer time, I take a nap and that helps me a lot to keep my day going.

Power Nap really works wonder! That's why yung ibang ocmpany sa US, aside from their regular break, they gave their employee a Nap Break.
