If one can squeeze some time off from a day, napping is a great option to catch up on lost sleep, feel rested or increase alertness, as many famous daytime nappers like Albert Einstein or Leonardo Da Vinci would tell you.

An afternoon power nap of 10 to 30 minutes are highly reccomended for increasing energy, and longer naps help in general body restoration and increased effectiveness of memory, at the cost of feeling drowsy when you wake up.
