TAKE AN AF­TER­NOON NAP

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Body and Soul - - NEWS -

Es­pe­cially if you’ve got a dif­fi­cult choice to make. Ac­cord­ing to a study pub­lished in the Jour­nal of Sleep Re­search, tak­ing a nap af­ter re­ceiv­ing new in­for­ma­tion can in­crease your abil­ity to process de­tails and im­prove your abil­ity to re­spond. The re­searchers found that sleep­ing for as lit­tle as 90 min­utes can help your brain process in­for­ma­tion you might not have no­ticed the first time around, which makes it eas­ier for you to weigh up the pros and cons once you’re awake.
