Sleeping in two blocks of time or taking a nap might be better than that 8-hours of shuteye.
1. Be More Alert and More Creative.
You can take a nap when your body is slowing down, and you will wake up to another period of increased alertness and creativity. People are asked to remember specific words and pairs in a German study. Next, half the participants take an hour nap, while the other watch a DVD. The nap group performs 5 times better than those who watch the DVD. More, people who entered REM sleep were more creative problem solvers accruing to a study at the University of California, San Diego. In that instance, pilots who napped for 40 minutes were more alert.
2. Fight Insomnia.
A study at Sleep Health Foundation found that insomnia keeps 1 in 3 people awake. It is a mild form of insomnia in some cases. In other, it is a night of staying alert until the clock. Reaching that magic 8 hours a night seems always difficult to meet. But, what if they are able to follow their natural body rhythm?
There were two blocks of sleep – “first sleep” and “second sleep”- in the pre-industrial era. The“bi-phasic sleep” (sleeping in two four-hour blocks) is a “natural process with a biological basis, according to a 1990 study. Maybe, it is right that all Spaniards taking a lunch and nap break. You would sleep very well if you weren’t worried about how to sleep and how long you needed to sleep.
3. Better for Your Body Clock.
In the early afternoon, you’ve probably experienced a letdown. You may feel sleepy or tired. You don’t feel as alert. You have trouble concentrating. Your work rate falls off. Generally, a nap will help you. And, establishing 2 blocks of sleep can accommodate shift work. People will have more flexible time to spend with their family.
A worn-out and uncomfortable bed can keep you from that restful night’s sleep.
