According to a recent issue of the Harvard Health Letter, napping—which has long had a reputation for ruining nighttime sleep—has actually been found to be beneficial to health in most cases. The piece notes that over the last decade or so, researchers have found that napping can improve learning, memory, and creative thinking. Harvard sleep researcher Robert Stickgold goes so far as to say that napping makes people more effective problem-solvers. How to nap effectively? The Health Letter offers a few tips:


Keep it short. Twenty to 30 minutes is about right for a nap.


Stay cool—and in the dark. Reducing light and noise, and cool temperatures, can help you fall asleep faster.


Don’t give in to guilt. A nap—especially for a person with FM-induced sleep difficulties—can make you more productive at work and at home.
