Guide to Better Napping
Merlin Mann | Jun 17 2008
I'm a big fan of napping and often evangelize the transformative power of a quick Pzizz. If you're new to the nap habit -- or if you buy the propaganda that naps are only for infants and layabouts -- treat yourself to this cool infographic from The Boston Globe (shown in part above).

It's full of handy tips for learning when you're most likely benefit from a nap, how long to snooze, as well as what you can do to improve your environment for good sleep.
Yeah, yeah, I know. I've heard it before: napping shouldn't require a guide and software. But an astonishing number of people I've talked to just can't bring themselves to sleep during the day (and many sleep poorly at night as well). As a marginally sleep-deprived Dad, I'm all for anything that helps people get rested and refreshed, and the advice in this little guide comports with everything I've learned about making naps work.
