So I was farting around the internet… procrastinating… and bored. I found some interesting info that it takes about 15 minutes for caffine to kick in. That same page said if you drink 1 cup of coffee then close your eyes for 15 minutes (and do a little cat nap) that it gives you the BEST reboot. Makes sense to me! I may have to try it sometime. Here’s the infographic:
What do you all think?

@Woodstock: I have trouble taking such a short nap and I don’t drink coffee….something tells me this isn’t really a solution for me lol.

@housebee: I used to have trouble with naps too. but then I actually started setting an alarm for 15-20 (anything longer makes me GRUMPY and not refreshed) minutes and putting said alarm on the other side of the room. Kept me from hitting snooze and left me refreshed when waking up. I haven’t tried the coffee thing yet…

I feel like caffeine hits me faster than that, but maybe it’s placebo.

I used to nap a lot in college, not anymore though. I can’t fall asleep at night if I nap during the day, but I can see it working!

I don’t really consume caffiene.
I generally find that a 20-minute nap is the best thing ever! And if you combine it with a good workout in the morning, you get an energy burst that lasts all day!

I feel like I would be even more tired/not what to get up in 15 minutes. Plus caffeine doesn’t have much of an effect on me, unfortunately. It’s an interesting idea though.

@BrandNewBride: I agree workout + nap (if you have the time/luxury) is awesome! Although if you wake up too early for a workout it makes you want to go to bed at like 7pm!

There is a science to napping…

I only take 20 min naps and when I wake up I feel so refreshed. I don’t drink coffee, I feel like it did nothing for me. But all I know if when I used tho take long naps I couldn’t wake up and was tired the rest of the day.

@Hyperventilate: love it! I kind of knew about the napping thing but really learned about the sleep cycle when I was in flight school. Military liked to pound that info down our throats b/c they knew we were likely to operate on odd sleep cycles and with flying you HAVE to be well rested. So they were ALL about us taking naps when we weren’t working.
Thanks for all the information! I’m reading up on it now and learning even more!!!
