Sleep is very important for everyone but did you know that how long should you nap for during day time? Lets discuss about the nap timings.
10-20 minutes – To improve alertness, stamina and a nice way to get back to work and refresh yourself.
30 minutes – Never! Studies indicate you may feeling more sleepy after that.
60 minutes – To improve the recognition of your reality.
90 minutes – To improve the memory and imagination of your emotion and easy to wake up from.
What is the perfect time to take a nap?
The optimal time to take a nap is decided by individual variables such as your sleep routine and age. For most people the easiest way to take a nap is early in the afternoon. Napping after 3 p.m. may mess up with your sleep at night.
Side effects of nap during daytime
While napping provides several health benefits. This can cause side effects, and even have adverse health effects.
Naps that exceed 20 minutes will increase the inertia of sleep which makes you feel groggy and disoriented. This happens when you wake up from a deep sleep. If you do, then sleep deprivation symptoms appear to be extreme and last longer.
Napping too long or too late in the day will make your sleep more difficult at night. It is also worse for people with insomnia and who also have nighttime sleep issues.
Longer daytime Sleep is associated with a significantly higher risk of cardiovascular disease and all-cause death. Daytime naps longer than 60 minutes are associated with a higher risk of heart disease as compared to non-napping. Age, general health, and sleeping habits play an important role.
