Many of us like taking a nap in the daytime, but unfortunately just few of us can afford it. And it’s not too good, especially for those whose work and daily activities are closely linked to being focused and concentrated. The specialists from Utrecht University (the Netherlands) found out that a short daytime sleep is one of the most effective ways to increase our productivity. They are convinced that only 20-30 minutes of a good sleep in the afternoon is enough to relax. This short sleep will help us restore our energy, clear our mind, sharpen our problem-solving abilities and be ready for new challenges.
Moreover, the experts from Holland are convinced that this short daytime napping can play an important role in lowering the traffic accident occurrence and helping us avoid various traumas and injures linked to a lack of attention and inability to focus. They claim that their experiments have shown that having a regular 20-30 minutes daytime nap (at least 3-4 times a day) decreases the risk of having a stroke for almost 37%.
That is why having regular daytime sleep is not less important for every modern person than following a healthy diet, drinking sufficient amounts of water or doing enough physical activities on a regular basis. However, the researches say that it is possible to achieve the states results only in case if you have a short but very good rest. The best environment for such daytime napping sessions are, certainly, dark rooms with relatively low temperature. It is recommended also to use beds and do not sleep in a sitting position. Only this way your body can relax completely and take maximum from a short daytime sleep. How could we possibly have this luxury daytime sleep when we spend out days in the offices, the specialists have not specified.
