The Power Of A Nap: Are You a Power Napper or Deep Sleeper? [POLL]
For years, researchers have told us of the power of a nap. Since then, the term “Power Nap” reared it’s ugly head, and a lot of people made it a habit to catch a five or 10 minute snooze in the parking lot, in their car, before coming back into the office at work, for example.
In my opinion, there is no such thing as a power nap, and as a matter of fact, a “nap” isn’t a “nap” unless I can dedicate a good 90 minutes to two hours. Some people, I know, can feel rested and rejuvenated after a few minutes of snoozing…I just can’t do it. If I only get that much sleep time, I feel even more groggy and foggy than I did before I fell asleep.
I am one of those people that can sleep anywhere, and can usually fall into a deep sleep at the drop of a hat, but it someone is gonna wake me up or an alarm is gonna go off without a good 90 minutes, I feel cheated. That having been said, naps are one of the most beautiful and ingenious inventions of all time. I love sleeping…it’s good for me, and I’m damn good at it.
What about you? Are you a power napper, or do you need some good, long minutes of quality time with your pillow and blanket?
