How long is “The Perfect Nap?”

My perfect nap is about 25-35 minutes.  Anything over that and I’m a grump, just ask my wife, Susie…LOL

Have you ever woken up from a nap and felt WORSE than when you started?  Dr. Jeffrey Iliff (Eye-Liff) is a sleep researcher, and a clip of him explaining how to take the perfect nap is making the rounds.  He gives you two choices.

If you take a short nap, say 20 or 30 minutes, you won’t go into a deep sleep, and you’ll wake up feeling refreshed.  If you want to go longer, nap for 90 minutes.  That completes one full sleep cycle, and again, you’ll wake up feeling recharged.

(Here’s the video.  It’s cued to the perfect nap, which ends at 1:43.  Want even more details?  Check out our story on the “Six Steps for the Perfect Nap.”)
