Perfect the Art of Napping

Nothing sounds better after the lunch hour than a quick nap. If done right, naps can help your work performance for the rest of the day. But, if the timing isn’t right, a nap could do more harm than good.

To help you perfect the art of napping, the Wall Street Journal compiled a list of top tips for a solid nap:

  1. Don’t nap too long. Experts suggest anywhere between 10 to 20 minutes.
  2. Avoid napping close to bed time. Instead, target the 1 to 4 p.m. range for an afternoon “pick-me-up.”
  3. Nap in a comfortable place. Some suggest sleeping upright to limit the nap length.
  4. Don’t nap if you suffer from sleep disorders like insomnia or sleep apnea.
  5. Dreaming during a nap means you may be sleep deprived. Instead of the nap, try getting more sleep every night.
  6. Along the same line, don’t use a nap as a substitute for getting a full night’s sleep.
