How Long Should the Perfect Nap Be?
Have you ever woken up from a nap and felt WORSE than when you started?
Dr. Jeffrey Iliff is a sleep researcher, and a clip of him explaining how to take the perfect nap is making the rounds on the internet.
When it comes to naps, he gives you two choices.
If you take a short nap, don’t go longer than 20 or 30 minutes, that way you won’t go into a deep sleep, and you’ll wake up feeling refreshed.
If you want to go longer, only nap for 90 minutes. That completes one full sleep cycle, and again, you’ll wake up feeling recharged.
Anyone else tired?
