Napping can Dramatically Increase Learning, Memory, Awareness, and More


In the world, certain towns and areas deliberately shut down completely so the people can take a proper nap and reboot. Well, America is not one of those areas and people are rarely used to napping.

Naps are actually very beneficial for you, so if you do find the time to do it- go for it! Napping is considered a regular, normal and integral part of the circadian (sleep-wake cycle) rhythm.

The focus, concentration and energy levels are not the same throughout the day, regardless of your long night sleep. So if you want to recharge and get your energy back, a simple nap can do wonders for you.


Many companies, including Apple and Google are among those companies who allow their workers to take a nap before continuing their work. Medical studies are also pro-nap oriented and state they can strengthen the focus, productivity and performance in people.

One study, conducted by the University of Colorado Boulder found that children who skipped their napping time have bigger chances to suffer lack of joy and interest and experience health problems like anxiety, problem solving skills.

This is also true for adults. Some researchers with Berkeley discovered that adults who practice napping more often strengthen their memory function and learning skills. Napping affects the brain positively and allows it to reboot and refresh.
