Didn’t need a reason for a nap, but now I have one

NIMH: “Power Nap” Prevents Burnout; Morning Sleep Perfects a Skill

New experiments by NIMH grantee Alan Hobson, M.D., Robert Stickgold, Ph.D., and colleagues at Harvard University show that a midday snooze reverses information overload and that a 20 percent overnight improvement in learning a motor skill is largely traceable to a late stage of sleep that some early risers might be missing.

Oh yes, I will be napping more regularly now! I have justification for napping… and you can’t call me lazy with the backing of the scientific community (though you could call me unevolved I suppose).
