A quick power nap can determine the difference between staying productive and coasting through the day like a brain-dead zombie. But how much rest do you actually need to boost your energy levels? Is it possible to nap for too little or for too long? And how does REM fit into it all this? This information-packed infographic from Patio Productions explains all.
You need about seven hours of sleep to be productive. You can increase the chances of getting those by sleeping in a bedroom that is coloured blue, yellow, green, silver or orange.
We all understand that there is a roughly 90-minute sleep cycle your body goes through while you’re unconscious. Waking up at the end of it is great for productivity, but if you need to generate ideas, try waking up about 30 minutes before the end.
