A nap on the go just shows that you do not have enough healthy sleep. Previously, he also had problems ... either insomnia overcame, then slept a lot and then walked overwhelmed. But now, ugh ugh, it seems like we managed to normalize it. I drank the enhanced Evalar formula for sleep, began to play more sports, well, and stopped eating at night. Such simple ways, it would seem, but the dream really got better. Now I sleep less in time, but I get enough sleep, oddly enough ... and there is no nap on the go)

Has. An afternoon nap - I like to use the Spanish word for siesta - is very helpful, especially lasting between 15-20 minutes and an hour and a half between 11 and 4 pm.

There are several types of siesta.

Nano-siesta is a 15-20 second nap when you literally slide onto the shoulder of your neighbor on the subway. Researchers have not come to a unanimous opinion whether this nano-sleep is really useful.

Micro-siesta - lasts 2-5 minutes. Proven for rolling drowsiness.

Mini Siesta - 5-20 minutes. Increases alertness, endurance, motor skills acquisition and motor activity.

Recovery sleep - 20 minutes
Combines the benefits of micro and mini, in addition, improves muscle memory, and also clears the brain of unnecessary information, which increases long-term memory (memorization facts, events and names).

A real summer siesta - 50-90 minutes
Includes slow and REM sleep, helps to improve visual perception, and when the body is oversaturated growth hormone, such sleep helps repair bones and muscles.

If siesta was not useful and had no effect on brain performance, leading companies like Google would not allow their employees to have a siesta during lunchtime, not would equip entire rooms, and one of the largest companies even hired a special worker in charge of siesta - at lunchtime, the "sleep master" helps workers relax and unwind.

I myself constantly sleep at lunchtime or in the afternoon, because I do not get enough sleep at night. I think we can say that my sleep has become biphasic - that is, I sleep twice a day always, and only sometimes I do not have time to have a siesta (but I suffer from this). I did not notice any negative effects on my body. The main thing is to observe the rule of one and a half - sleep for the number of hours, a multiple of 1.5. Ideally, of course, the siesta shouldn't last that long, but the same applies to a night's sleep.

Sleep well!
