Health News: Midday Snoozes are Good for the Brain

Researchers found taking a midday snooze improves your memory by 20%.

Are you one to find a corner or a couch right after lunch?  Or maybe your favorite chair calls your name when the clock strikes noon?  If that’s you, good news.  You are doing your brain a favor.
University of California researchers found that taking a midday snooze improves your memory by 20%.  It works by increasing a slow wave activity in the brain.  And if you do it routinely, it can also reduce your risk of developing dementia by nearly 50%.  That’s all according to investigators reporting in the journal of Sleep Medicine as reported in Woman’s World.
