Napping is a great way to help revive yourself if you're sleepy, tired or stressed.

Here are some of the ways napping can improve your physical and emotional well-being, courtesy of the National Sleep Foundation:

  • A nap can improve alertness and productivity by reducing chances for accidents and mistakes.
  • A nap can make you feel more alert immediately, and may prolong alertness for up to a few extra hours later in the day.
  • Because a nap often feels like a luxury, it offers the emotional benefits of helping you feel rejuvenated, relaxed, and less stressed.
