The first thing I did when we moved to our new location at NBC tower was scout out places to nap.
What I didn’t know then is that naps are GREAT for work productivity! An hour long afternoon nap improves memory and critical thinking!
Researchers examined the sleeping patterns of nearly 3,000 people to learn whether taking a nap had any effect on mental health.
Nearly 60 percent of the people in the study said they napped after lunch for between 30 and 90 minutes, with the average nap time at about 63 minutes.
The participants took several tests to assess their mental status, answering simple questions about the date, time of year and basic math problems.
According to the study, published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, those who took an hour-long nap performed better on the mental tests compared to those who did not nap!

This is great news! I’m off to grab some shut eye.
