It’s already known that an afternoon nap has a number of positive effects on the body, and British scientists have recently discovered that efficiency of a nap depends on the time when we decide to take it.
The results of the latest research have shown that people benefit most from a nap when they lie down at three o’clock in the afternoon.
The reason for this is the circadian rhythm, which slows down at that time. Many people are also sleepy after lunch, and generally there is a drop in attention.
However, be careful not to overdo it. For example, an hour is too much, because after that you will feel stunned.
Scientists are recommending that it would be best to take a nap that lasts for about 20 to 30 minutes.
If it’s about 3 p.m. right now while you’re reading this, we suggest giving the perfect power nap a try.
