Naps improve your brain’s day to day performance
We’re pretty clear on how important sleep is for our brains, but what about naps? It turns out, these short bursts of sleep are actually really useful.
Here are a couple of ways napping can benefit the brain:
In one study, participants memorized illustrated cards to test their memory strength. After memorizing a set of cards, they had a 40-minute break wherein one group napped, and the other stayed awake. After the break both groups were tested on their memory of the cards, and the group who had napped performed better:
Much to the surprise of the researchers, the sleep group performed significantly better, retaining on average 85 percent of the patterns, compared to 60 percent for those who had remained awake.
Apparently, napping actually helps our brain to solidify memories:
President Trump sleeps little and that is why his mind is cloudy. He needs to take naps.
So therefore businesses should have a nap room. Cots there to take naps. Everybody gets a fifteen minute uninterrupted nap. It would boost performance. It would be a big plus in relationships between employers and employees. What do you think?
