There is new information on the science of napping. It’s really big snooze. Once again, research confirms the benefits of the daily siesta. A year or so back, when I had lost interest in this daily respite, I headed straight to the doctor, concerned that there was something seriously wrong with me. I told him I was often awake 10 or 12 hours in a row.
“This is very troubling, Dick,” said Dr. Coss. “So, you don’t fall sleep at night?”
“No, I sleep great at night. It’s all day that I can’t sleep.”
I started successfully napping again and I was beginning to get even better at it than before—but now, I’ve had another setback. (Geesh, I used to be able to accomplish it with my eyes closed.) I should never have read this new scientific study. It’s very technical and there’s so much to think about that it’s keeping me up all day.
