Everyone can benefit from a good power nap throughout a long day. Here are just a few of those who we always recommened to take a power nap along with some suggested nap times:

The Businessperson: What could be better than taking 20 minutes out of your hectic day to just put on your headphones, lean back in your chair, and clear your mind of all that worries. Sounds great, huh? But I know what you’re thinking…no way my boss would just let me doze off for 20 minutes in the middle of my workday, that would just “lower productivity”. In fact, this is a false assumption. A 20 minute power nap can actually rejuvenate your mind and body and keep you productive for those crucial final hours of the work day. If taking one during the day is not feasable, we find that a power nap after work is a great way to unwind for the day and to leave your “work” at the office. Suggested Nap Times: Immediately following Lunch (your body is telling you it is tired for a reason), Mid Morning break, Once arriving home after a long day at the office.

The Student: Whether it’s pulling an all-nighter the night before a final, or partying until 5 am the previous night, the full time student always can use an energy boost. A power nap has been proven to reopen your mind and help your body cope with irregular times (hangovers, all-nighters, daily stress, etc.). Suggested Nap Times: 2 hours before a night on the town, In between an intense study session, Immeadiately following a test.

The Housewife:
A power nap can be just what you need in between dropping the kids off at soccer practice and running to the grocery store. Being a housewife is certainly a full time job nowadays and can be just as stressful, if not more, than any other job. So relax, take 20 minutes out of your busy day and just take a power nap. Suggested Nap Times: After a long day of running errands, while the kids are at school.

    Good stuff about power naps. One thing that’s true: many people are afraid to take a power nap. They think they will oversleep and miss meetings, classes or appointments. Also, having taken naps before, lots of folks also hate the sluggish, groggy feeling that sits on them like a cloud after waking from a nap. The groggy feeling is almost totally a result of napping for too long. What happens is that a longer nap (more than 30 minutes) allows the brain to fall into deeper “Delta brain-wave” levels of sleep, from which awakening is more time-consuming, whereas the shorter power nap (5-25minutes) enables the napper to awaken and immediately feel refreshed and energized. So when we created the power nap kit we built into the sessions a series of chimes, so that after the allowable nap period, a chime rings repeatedly in order to awaken the napper, thus preventing the problem of oversleeping. More than 70% of adults do not get enough nighttime sleep, and therefore could benefit from a short power nap once or twice a week — or more.

    Talking about naps, it is very well known that Kimi Raikkonen (Ferrari F1 team driver) takes a 20 to 30 minutes nap before every race… this is what I call an Ice Man.
