Take a Tiger Snooze…It’s National Napping Day!
Naps are actually good for our overall health.
If you’re feeling jet-lagged after daylight saving time, just plop down on the couch for a little snooze. Naps are actually good for our overall health. A NASA study on astronauts found that taking naps improved working memory performance. That involves focusing attention on one task while having other tasks in your memory. A separate research group found the more sleep-deprived someone was, the more likely they were to consume sugar, fatty foods and caffeine. They also discovered the right side of the brain stays active while you’re snoozing, which is the side that’s associated with creative tasks.
