Confession, I’m a napper. I started napping when I was traveling to Europe every six weeks for work and short naps were my solution to conquering jet lag. And, when my children were infants, naps made working possible. I’ve always been an insane morning person and get up before 5 am most days. A 20 minute snooze in the afternoon helps me extend my day.
When my older daughter was in boarding school, a doctor told the students that naps are beneficial and 26 minutes is the optimum amount of time to refresh but, not too much to disrupt nighttime sleep. I read somewhere that you should have a cup of coffee before you nap because it takes 30 minutes to kick in. Even 15 minutes (often in a comfy chair in my office) is restorative.
