Coffee Naps and You!
Coffee before a nap? Sounds silly but science backs it up! The short of it is that the brain chemical adenosine that makes you sleepy competes with caffeine for the same brain receptor. Think of it as two cars but only one parking spot. Has a bonus, sleep acts as a parking officer preventing the adenosine car from taking the caffeine car’s spot.
To get the most benefits from this, it’s recommended to take your nap within 15-30 minutes as this is when caffeine’s effects start to happen. 30 minutes or less is recommended for your nap and even just lying down without fully sleeping was seen as effective!
So get your mug ready for a quick slip and nap in the afternoon to finish out your day! :D
