Naps. When we’re younger, we dread them. When we’re older, we covet them. However, when the length of the nap is just as important as the nap itself. Below is a chart for just how long we should nap. 


So, the next time you take a nap… be sure you time your nap to get the fullness and benefits of it. It’s important for adults who nap in the middle of the day and have to return to work as well as for the children.

If you wonder why babies and toddlers are groggy after waking up, this could be why. Not only was their nap disturbed, but it could have been too short, as in between these times. ❤
