Imagine a product that increases alertness, boosts creativity, reduces stress, improves perception, stamina, motor skills and accuracy. 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 non toxic, 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.

The work of Sara C. Mednick, Ph.D., a researcher at the Salk Institute and the leading authority on the study of the nap.

“Take a Nap! Change Your Life” is the scientifically-based breakthrough programme that shows how to fight the fatigue epidemic-which afflicts millions of people all over the world, through a custom-designed nap.

“Take a Nap! Change Your Life” explains the five stages of the sleep cycle, particularly Stage Two, Slow Wave Sleep, and REM, and the benefits each one provides. How to assess our tiredness and set up a personal sleep profile. How to neutralize the voice in our head that tells us napping is a sign of laziness (not that anyone would have called JFK, Churchill, Einstein, or Napoleon a slug-a-bed).

Using the unique Nap Wheel on the cover and interior graphs and charts, it shows us exactly when our optimum napping time is. Exactly how long we should try to sleep, even 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, case studies, and more.

  1. Sam Ellis

    A short yet seminal text on napping, written originally in 2006 by Harvard research scientist and now military & business consultant. The first half of the book explains in detail how humans are meant to nap and how the hidden epidemic of fatigue can be thwarted by adopting her napping manifesto. She asserts that by understanding the pattern and advantages of night time sleep we can select desired functional benefits and through appropriate napping, add these back into our day time portfolio. This is a compelling, very easy read which will change a nap sceptic into a nap advocate.
