Now I read that there are studies showing that a nap could improve my mental abilities.  According to this study’s results, people who took an hour-long nap after lunch did better on the mental tests compared to the people who did not nap.

People who took no naps, short naps, or longer naps experienced decreases in their mental ability that were about four-to-six times greater than people who took hour-long naps.  Click here to read this entire article.

I guess I need to start scheduling a nap into my day everyday.  What about you?
