It can help you get through the rest of your day
-- Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Sometimes you feel like you need a little rest to get through the rest of your day. Experts say that may not be a bad idea.

The National Sleep Foundation explains how a nap can be beneficial:

  • A short nap can help reduce the risk of accidents and mistakes, make you more alert and boost performance.
  • A nap may increase alertness for several hours, not just the immediate aftermath.
  • A nap can help you feel refreshed and energized.
