The power of Power Nap

I was very tired, sleepy and also having a slight headache this evening after work. I planned to go to the gym for a workout but I'm doubt I could do so. Thanks to insufficient sleep yesterday night where I can't sleep till almost 1am plus and woke up at 7am. It's a long day at work and I was real tired.

It was an hour ride back home in the bus and I doze off. It's not a sound nap as I woke and napped again and woke up again. However, after almost an hour and when I was reaching the gym, which was nearby my place, I stop napping, 'wake up' and then, I felt refreshed! Thus, I quickly sound the bell to get down and had a great workout and run.



I was simply amazed at the wonders of a power nap! Just a short nap and it really sustained me for the evening! Thus, if you are lack of sleep, try taking a 15 mins power nap in the office. It do you wonders!!

  4. The say power nap should only be 10 to `5 minutes, more than that no good, you will get more lethargic ..

    glad you were having it great work out in the gym

  5. Long naps make one groggy and lazy. I always have short power naps - 5 to 10minutes, just to refresh...not sleep for hours...and still call it a nap. That's for lazy people!

  24. Well, that's why they're called power naps. They can quickly recharge your energy for a short while, and they also do great for working people who lack sleep.
