Want to boost your productivity? Put your head down and take a nap. It sounds counterintuitive, but napping is the best cure for the post-lunch dip, sharpening your attention and boosting your creativity better than that candy bar or double shot latte. One of the best investments you can make in your health is purchasing furniture for napping.
Here are some tips on napping from the National Sleep Foundation:
- The best time to nap is early afternoon, between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.; napping later can be troublesome, impacting the quality of your nighttime sleep.
- The length of your nap is key to getting its benefits. A brief 20-minute nap will sharpen your attention and motor skills, while a 60- to 90-minute nap will help you with problem solving and creativity.
- The ideal spot for sleep is one that dark, quiet, cool and comfortable. Close the blinds to keep out the afternoon sun, and try to minimize noise. Using a sound machine or fan can help eliminate distracting sounds.
