It’s official – napping makes you happier! BRB, off to bed…

It’s an universal truth that we’re all searching for happiness. Whether that means finding love, landing the dream job or simply enjoying a Friday night wine.

But experts are now claiming there’s something extremely simple we can do to be that little bit happier – snuggle up on the sofa and have an afternoon nap!

Taking short, regular naps has been scientifically linked to being a happier, calmer person.

Go on, read a little more…

Psychologist Professor Richard Wiseman said: ‘Previous research has shown that naps of under 30 minutes make you more focused, productive and creative, and these new findings suggest the tantalising possibility that you can also become happier by just taking a short nap.”

But make sure that nap doesn’t go on too long!

“Similarly, longer napping is associated with several health risks and, again, this is in line with our results.”

What do you think – does napping make you happier? Let us know on social! 

Wiseman continued: “A large body of research shows that short naps boost performance. Many highly successful companies, such as Ben & Jerry’s and Google, have installed dedicated nap spaces. Employees need to wake up to the upside of napping at work.”

So next time you take that power nap, know it’s for the greater good!
