Power of the nap, podcast

In the past 2 years I’ve really gotten into listening to podcasts. It seems to have coincided with being pregnant, having a baby, and being home more. Stuff To Blow Your Mind is a science podcast that I listen to sometimes and this episode on napping is all the validation you need to grab some zs.

After having my daughter I pretty much ran on 2-4 hours of sleep until she turned a year this May. I felt like a zombie. People told me that as a new mom I should sleep when the baby sleeps but I could rarely discipline myself to do that, maybe it was all the podcasts I wanted to catch up on. Had I heeded the advice to nap, maybe I would have been in less of a haze for the first year. These podcast hosts are entertaining and cite a lot of research into the power of the nap. I’ll let you listen to get the details but some of the benefits from a 20-30 minute nap are: reduction in the fight or flight response if you have had a poor night of sleep the night before, reduced blood pressure, improved memory, and improved response times. All of these benefits come from a short nap! Combine it with a little caffeine and you’re in top shape! If you have 30 minutes and are the podcasting type, give this Stuff To Blow Your Mind episode a listen. Then take a nap.
