|Ever try napping during your work day? Even 18-25 minutes can help beat the stress that causes insomnia and sleep loss. Taking naps can help offset the effects of sleep deficiency that can contribute to weight gain, headaches, high blood pressure, diabetes, depression and other physical and mental issues.
A 20 minute nap can help refresh the mind, improve overall alertness, boost mood and increase productivity. A study funded by the National Institute of Mental Health showed that a midday snooze reverses information overload and can boost performance to your top levels. Other studies demonstrate that naps can improve heart health and restore certain memory functions as much as a night of sleep can!
So... ready to start napping? We can help! Start

and prepare the mind and body for effective and alert days!
