The Perfect Nap

we’ve all woken up like this ^ before.

 

Is it possible? I feel like this is something I’ve been searching for since I was a toddler. I hate naps, I love naps, I hate naps, I love naps. I’m up.

Everyone knows that “out of it” feeling you have after a nap.. am I really pissed off or am I well rested.. is that MY hand? Where am I.. ughh I am so thirsty.

I call it post nap syndrome and frankly I am surprised there is not a post nap pill yet.. (Idea number two.. I want 25%  if you create it).

See, we all know naps are like a box of chocolates you really never know what you’re gonna get, but what if you could control a nap and use it to your advantage? would you feel guilty taking them anymore? Or would you own them?

Guide to a perfect nap:

Keep it under 60 minutes or over 90… you don’t want to wake up feeling like Rain Man, that miniature gap between 60 and 90 minutes is where the post nap syndrome sets in… above 90 minutes you go through cycles of un-interrupted sleep, where as under 60 minutes keeps you fresh and allows you to oil up the gears. That’s your classical nap..

If you want to be edgy and hip with your nap, try the “Caffeine Nap“. A caffeine nap is where you time your caffeine intake to just before you lay down as it takes about 20 to 30 minutes to kick in leaving you rested and energetic as you wake up. But don’t take my word for it.. try it.
