The Power of ZZZs
Getting motivated to improve anything about your life takes both mental focus and physical energy, two things you can’t possibly have when you’re mind and body of tired from a lack of sleep.
According to sleep experts, we need between seven to nine hours of sleep per night, but the average American gets just six and a half! Without your required hours logged in each night, you don’t have a chance at stirring up the energy or focus you need to do the things you’ve always wanted to do. The solution? Napping!
Taking a nap provides many of the same benefits as a full-night’s rest. Along with feeling refreshed and alert, studies have shown that napping can actually increase learning effectiveness by 50% and improve complex motor and precision skill ability. Add to that the fact that napping leads to higher levels of creativity and you’ve got yourself a proven secret to success – the nap!
