You need to rest. This file will help you make the most of your downtime. Nap or simply listen to my voice as we recharge your mind and your body.
I want you to be the best possible version of you.
Imagine waking to my voice daily, obeying my voice daily, and going to bed to my voice nightly.
Power nap like a pro.
Your Mistress does love evidence-based everything.
Studies on power-napping have varied with some stating benefits might be overstated by overzealous newspaper headlines.
However, as long as you’re not ruining your night’s sleep. I do think the studies showing the benefits of a recharge have a leg up here. Try it. See how it impacts your life.
A few tips:
An hour or two after lunch is a natural time to nap since your blood sugar and energy levels drop. If you drink your afternoon coffee before your nap, you’ll wake up feeling the effects.
Studies show that 20 minutes of sleep in the afternoon provides more rest than 20 minutes more sleep in the morning (though the last two hours of morning sleep have special benefits of their own). The body seems to be designed for this, as most people’s bodies naturally become more tired in the afternoon, about 8 hours after we wake up.
Use a prop. If at work, do this by bringing something subtle to work that you associate with sleep and can use during your nap (think: slipping on cozy socks underneath your desk, listening to this session with headphones, or taking a sniff of lavendar oil). If at home, try napping on the sofa or in a comfortable chair so you won’t be tempted to stay in bed.
The 20-minute power nap — sometimes called the stage 2 nap — is good for alertness and motor learning skills like typing and playing the piano.
