If 2016 was the year of ‘get­ting happy’ and 2017 sent ev­ery­one off on a ‘mind­ful­ness’ mis­sion, then 2018 is all about ma­jor­ing on our most pow­er­ful re­source: sleep. But in th­ese tur­bocharged times, who has the chance to cram in eight con­sec­u­tive hours of slum­ber? No one, that’s who. Which is why news from the boffins at The Univer­sity of Penn­syl­va­nia is mu­sic to our ears. They found that a short ‘nana nap’ (our words, not theirs) in the mid­dle of the day can boost cre­ativ­ity and help us re­mem­ber things for longer. Want to do it with­out be­ing ac­cused of ‘sleep­ing on the job’? Pop to a David Lloyd gym at lunch – it’s of­fer­ing 45-minute naper­cise classes. And in Lon­don, Pop & Rest now has nap pods that can be booked for 30 min­utes in be­tween meet­ings. Sounds dreamy…
