It’s the middle part of the day and you’re starting to feel tired. You wonder if you should take a quick nap or grab some coffee and power through. As it turns out, you can combine both into a coffee nap! The idea is that you drink your coffee, and then take a nap right away until the effects of the caffeine kick in. Here’s a quick, three-step recipe for the perfect coffee nap.
1. Make a cup of your favourite coffee.
If you’re not a coffee drinker, that’s okay too. A strong cup of tea can still have the desired effect. The aim is to get enough caffeine to give you the boost you need to make it through the day. Once you have your beverage of choice in hand, go ahead and drink it.
2. For a great nap you need a restful environment.
Look for a place that’s comfortable, dark, and quiet. If you don’t have a place that meets all three criteria then go for the next best.
3. Set an alarm for 20-25 minutes.
Get yourself comfortable in your chosen spot. Relax, clear your mind, and have a quick nap.
And that’s all there is to it. You should wake up feeling refreshed. The effects of the caffeine should be kicking in, and you will be ready to continue on with your day. You will be more awake, be more productive, and ready to take on the world.
