Want to Boost Your Job Performance? NASA Says Take a Nap

NASA has found that just a 10 to 20-minute nap can improve your job performance by 32%! While researching the effects of tiredness on pilots, NASA researchers found that “naps can maintain or improve subsequent performance, physiological and subjective alertness, and mood … for a time period ranging from 2 to 12 hours following the nap”. As long as you don’t go into deep sleep, you should wake up without feeling groggy. If you decide to use napping as an alertness-management strategy, you should consider all outcomes when you wake up.
