When was the last time you took a nap? Sometimes when we hit a wall during the day a nap can rejuvenate you. Set a timer for 20 minutes and see how you feel after you wake up.
Elizabeth Scott, M.S. writes on about.com:
The Benefit of a Power Nap: Studies show that 20 minutes of sleep in the afternoon provides more rest than 20 minutes more sleep in the morning (though the last two hours of morning sleep have special benefits of their own).
Natasha gives some good information in her article: Power Naps: The Definitive Guide
I used to hate napping. But while burning the candle at both ends, I learned that putting my head down on my desk for 15 minutes helped me to be able to get through the rest of my day. Setting an alarm is a must. I still don’t like napping but sometimes I just have to do it. And it always proves worthwhile.
