About Take a Nap

Imagine a product that increases alertness, boosts creativity, reduces stress, improves perception, stamina, motor skills, and accuracy, enhances your sex life, helps you make better decisions, keeps you looking younger, aids in weight loss, reduces the risk of heart attack, elevates your mood, and strengthens memory. Now imagine that this product is nontoxic, has no dangerous side effects, and, best of all, is absolutely free.

This miracle drug is, in fact, nothing more than the "nap": the right nap at the right time.

Take a Nap! Change Your Life. explains the five stages of the sleep cycle, and the benefits each one provides; how to assess your tiredness and set up a personal sleep profile; and how to neutralize the voice in your head that tells you napping is a sign of laziness.

Using the unique, moveable Nap Wheel on the cover and interior graphs and charts, the book shows us exactly when our optimum napping time is, and exactly how long we should try to sleep. It even shows how it’s possible to design a nap to inspire creativity one day, and the next day design one to help us with our memory.

There are tips on how to create the right nap environment, a 16-step technique for falling asleep, a six-week napping workbook, and more.
