Models Direct: Power Napping Guide

Press Release: April 19, 2010

Your body needs seven or eight hours of sleep per day theres no easy way around this fact. Although a regular routine that includes more than nine hours sleep a day is now known to be harmful to your health, lack of sleep is a far more common problem.

If you consistently get too little sleep it can affect you in many ways. Some of these results like memory loss, moodiness, stress, lack of patience and motivation or impaired information processing and performance - can be problematic at best. Others such as impaired reaction time, judgement, vision and vigilance can be very dangerous.

Problems like this can arise when one is suffering from a sleep deficit, which can occur when inadequate sleep is ongoing over several days without being made up. Yes, if you do not get your quota of sleep tonight, you need to make it up in order to function at optimum levels.

So how do those with busy lifestyles address this issue?
Unfortunately napping seems to have a bad name in our society, but it is proven to be beneficial. Just a few minutes a day can make a huge difference in your life if you suffer from lack of sleep. It would also appear that our bodies are designed to incorporate napping you must have noticed that mid-afternoon slump? Research shows that human beings often naturally become tired approximately eight hours after waking.

If you are going to try power napping as a way of boosting up your sleep hours, experts recommend keeping it to between 15 and 30 minutes per day. This way it should not interfere with your usual sleep routine, will be easier to wake from and of course can fit into even the busiest of schedules. So if you have 15-30 minutes, take a nap! Even five minutes rest is better than nothing. However, if you are uncomfortable with napping altogether then as an alternative meditation will also allow your body some rest.
