At first glance, the words “coffee” and “nap” may seem to not go together. However, science is saying that combining the two can actually make you more productive during the day. If you’re struggling to power through the day and need relief, you may either drink another cup of coffee or break for a quick nap. But with a coffee nap, you consume caffeine then immediately go to sleep for up to 20 minutes.
The sleep will clear your head and by the time your 20 minutes is up, the caffeine will have hit your bloodstream to make you feel more alert. The important thing to remember is 20 minutes. Any more than that and you’ll fall into deeper sleep and it’ll be harder to get going again once you’re awake.
