Go ahead—Take a Nap

It’s unhealthy and exhausting to be connected to the world 24 hours a day.  These days, with e-mail, instant messaging, cell phones and PDAs, the idea of never being away from work can be exhausting and demoralizing, not to mention inefficient.Some stress management experts say a nap can refresh the mind and body so we can get going again. Naps can also prevent that after-lunch sluggishness that can sap the rest of the day’s energy if not attended to. So if you feel the need for renewal it might be time for a good old-fashioned nap.

Twenty minutes is all it takes for me to get into the deep sleep that I usually wake up from with a start, and feel 100 times better.
