Do you feel as if there aren’t enough hours in the day? Maybe you’re not utilizing them correctly. As today’s infographic suggests, a simple twenty minute nap can have your mind and body running at optimal performance.

When I was a young boy, my mother was the queen of naps. Me and my sister always knew not to bother her for anything during this time, because she was generally a happier camper when she arose from her slumber. I’ve never been much of a napper myself, just because that big burning ball in the sky says it’s time to rise and grind. But whenever I do nap, the feeling I get afterward is quite nice.

Some of the greatest historical figures, ranging from Einstein to Da Vinci have been documented nappers. Whether you’re nodding off for five minutes or an hour, a brief venture to the dreamworld can increase your level of alertness, increase your mood, stamina, and even have long term health effects. Finish the week off strong with a nap a day, preferably at these intervals. And remember, I’m not liable for any damages caused by excessive napping. [Via]
