A catnap is a period of short sleep. It is usually used to re-energize a person. While to be caught napping while working or in class is definitely not good, you will be surprised at the benefits that a simple nap can bring!


So what can we get from a short period of sleep?


Increases alertness. When one is tired and losing focus, a short nap may be a quick way to make you more alert.

A NASA study has shown that a 40 minute catnap increases your alertness back to 100%!

Improves health. Napping gives your brain a chance to rest and your body time to heal and repair itself.


Improves learning and working memory. Taking naps allows your brain to improve and retain what you learn better.


Prevents burnout. A short snooze is like restarting your computer. It allows the body to relieve stress and “reboot” itself.


Improves your mood. A nap is a simple luxury. It helps to rejuvenate and relax oneself.


No wonder a catnap is also called a power nap! Catch a nap today! Try it and enjoy the benefits a short sleep brings!



Say something or Ask a question. Be nice.

I like having catnaps but I have no time to sleep! Not a minute to waste! I have to study and study and study all the time because PSLE is coming up in less than 12 months!

Catnaps are sure very interesting! I think that now, I will make time to have a 5 to 10 minute sleep before studying and after studying. Really hope it energizes me!
