Napping Benefits

Napping is equally important to our overall mental, physical and emotional health as good nutrition and proper exercise.

Enhance Performance

Improving sleep quality positively affects athletes’ reaction times and accuracy, benefiting both athlete health and athletic performance.

Spark Creativity

Different stages of sleep allow memories to solidify and facilitate creativity through the reorganization of existing knowledge for innovation and problem solving.

Accelerate Recovery

The strategic use of naps (pre and post-training or competition) can naturally boost anabolic hormones to improve recovery.

Improve Mood

Naps improve performance level and self-confidence in task performance. People are simply more motivated for the tasks ahead.

Daytime napping stops or even reverses the process of deterioration in visual perception, thus helping individuals cope with information overload.

Even an ultra short period of sleep is sufficient to enhance memory processing.
