Health Tip: Napping Do’s and Don’ts

(HealthDay News) — A nap can improve mood, performance and alertness, says Mayo Clinic. But sleeping at the wrong time or for too long can backfire.

Mayo suggests the best way to nap:

  • Keep naps between 10 and 20 minutes.
  • Take naps in early afternoon.
  • Nap in a quiet, dark place with few distractions.

Before resuming activities after a nap, give yourself time to wake up. Allow yourself extra time if the activity requires a quick or sharp response.
