Getting a good night’s sleep is one of the best things we can do for our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being, says Vaibhav Sharma
Power naps can recharge youWhile sleeping in the day can cause sleepless nights, there are times we do not have a choice. If you have been pulling too many all-nighters at work or college and find yourself too drained – a power nap could help keep you fresh for the afternoon’s presentation. The trick is to have a cup of tea or coffee before your nap – which should be around 25-35 minutes long. Studies have found that a short power nap of around half an hour has a much higher restorative effect – any shorter can be ineffectual, while sleeping longer puts you at risk if going into deep sleep. A cup of coffee beforehand will also ensure that the caffeine kicks in just as you are getting up – perfectly timed! Just do not use this tactic too often, as there is no substitute for a good night’s sleep.
