Are naps good for you? Do they just slow down your productivity? This quote sums it up and will probably put a smile on your face.
An afternoon nap expands the brain’s capacity to learn, according to a University of California-Berkley study. Nappers easily outperformed non-nappers on their ability to retain information. In another experiment, nappers were twice as likely to solve a complex problem than people who hadn’t napped or who had spent the time in other activities…Napping strengthens your immune system… caffeine, usually in the form of coffee, followed by a nap of ten to twenty minutes, is the ideal technique for staving off sleepiness and increasing performance.” -Daniel H. Pink (pg.67-69)
