Why an afternoon siesta is good for your brain...
After a long day, you go to bed and you sleep your "tiredness" away.

While you're sleeping, your body is replenishing its energy sources, clearing out toxins and reducing inflammation... Which all help keep your brain sharp...

But what if you gave your body and brain more than just one opportunity in the day to "reset" itself?

Find out below what researchers of a study discovered...

Siesta your way to a sharper brain?

The concept of the siesta was made famous by the Spanish. Traditionally, commerce, schools and industry closes for an hour every afternoon at lunchtime,  and people take a nap for 20-30 minutes after eating lunch.

It's so popular, much of Western Europe, South America, the Phillipines and even China continue to adopt this tradition. 

But is there any merit to afternoon napping besides taking a time out every day?

It seems there is - particularly for the brain...

ALERT: Combat one of the most vicious “side effects” of an ageing brain

In a recent study, published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, researchers analysed the sleep patterns of over 2,900 people over the age of 65 in China.

Almost 60% of the participants were used to napping after lunch.

******************************************

In the study, those who napped for 30 to 90 minutes scored better in word recall- a sign of good memory, and figure drawing - a sign of good cognition.

Those who didn't nap during the day, or napped for less than 30 minutes, or more than 90 minutes in the day, didn't score as well.

Longer naps could interfere with night-time sleep which may explain why longer naps aren't as effective.

So, go ahead and cancel your after-lunch appointments and head home for a guilt-free nap - it's good for you
