Even though a cup of coffee is thought to be the perfect solution to refresh yourself when you are hit with a midday slump in energy, evidence is suggesting that a power nap is much more effective.
Experiments have shown that a midday nap can enhance information processing and learning. It can also reverse information overload and give a 20% improvement in learning a motor skill*.
In fact, research suggests that a 20 minute sleep is actually much more refreshing than an additional 20 minutes in bed, first thing in the morning. Cornell psychologist, Dr James Maas, even goes as far as suggesting that a power nap should be regarded as a part of a person's daily exercise routine.
Power Nap program uses specific frequencies required to induce power napping.
