Tips For A Sucessful Power Nap

I thought I'd take a second to impart some of my wisdom that I have gained over the years of power napping.

The power nap is a very useful tool, but used improperly can lead to serious consequences, such as insomnia, tardiness, and a generally dishevelled look.

Here are some tricks to keep the power nap just that, and not falling asleep at 3pm and waking after dark.

-Sleep on the floor. The floor isn't very comfortable, and you typically can't sleep more than 20-40 minutes there. That's a perfect power nap.

-Sleep with your shoes on. This is particularly useful for that 8pm power nap, where without caution you wake up at 1am and you're totally screwed. Leave the light on, leave your shoes on and put a blanket over your head, and you'll wake up in under an hour. Works every time.

I hope you find these tips useful. Sleep Sluts will find this particularly useful.

Now go enjoy that nap!
