WORK SMARTER NOT HARDER: What’s the Ideal Length of a Helpful Nap? And When?

Sleep Expert Reveals Ideal Nap Length, Time of Day & Habit

It can be tempting to take a nap in the middle of the day.

Dr. Rebecca Robbins, a sleep expert, says data shows that napping can be good for you; but it shouldn’t be a substitute for a full night’s sleep.

Robbins also says that the perfect nap is ten to 20 minutes long, the ideal time to nap is between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.

You should not nap if you suffer from insomnia.  And you’ll get the highest benefits from napping if you do so at the same time each day – you’ll even learn to fall asleep more quickly, and to wake up without an alarm.
