Are naps during the day productive for your health or counterproductive? Can a 20-30 minute nap at lunch help energize me for the rest of the day?

Hi Jenny, 

Thanks for the Ask. Depending how many hours of sleep we get at night, if it's less than what our body needs in order to feel energized the next day. A 20-30 minutes nap during the day can help with alertness and productivity, memory and learning and less stress through out the day.
