Nap Power

I really like a good nap, preferably on my porch, in the shade on a warm afternoon.

A nifty article by Beth Belle Cooper in Fast Company makes me feel even better about napping. She reports that “Studies of napping have shown improvement in cognitive function, creative thinking, and memory performance."

She also writes that “Naps can even have a physical benefit. In one study of 23,681 Greek men over six years, the participants who napped three times a week had a 37% lower risk of dying from heart disease.”

Since I’m part Greek, I plan to take this to heart.

I also like her four tips on how to nap better, which you can find at:
