Napping Linked to Improved Memory and Learning

Napping Linked to Improved Memory and Learning

There is a classic German study you need to bring up to your boss at work. The research finds that if people took a nap, it could make a major difference in productivity. The study showed that if you napped for just six minutes during the day, it will not only make you feel better, but it can improve your ability to learn and remember. The connection between sleep and learning is something that researchers have only recently pinpointed, but many know from their own experience, such as the mathematician who says he’s going to sleep and then has that eureka moment or he thinks of that math equation.

We always appreciate your comments.

    Interesting article! Napping is really beneficial if one is able to reach REM sleep, where we consolidate information and impact our learning abilities. REM can be easily achieved during naps in just a few minutes.
