Take a Nap! Change Your Life.

by Sara C. Mednick | workman publishing © 2006 · 141 pages

Want to change your life? Take a nap. Seriously. Nearly all of us are sleep deprived and naps are a scientifically proven way to boost everything you want to boost. Leading scientist Sara Mednicks walks us thru the evolutionary functionality of naps and teaches us how to get our nap on and why we should. In the Note, we'll cover the basics and get you rockin' it like a nap ninja in no time.

Then one afternoon in my lab... I had my hellooo moment: Learning after a nap is equal to learning after a full night of sleep! Test scores of non-nappers deteriorated across the day! That’s what my research proved.

“The ‘big picture’ message is that napping is a necessary and effective tool that can be used by anyone in pursuit of optimum health, happiness and productivity. I want to tell you why that is so, and how to make that knowledge work for you, your family, your company and your community. I want to make you a napper.”

~ Sara Mednick, Ph.D. from Take a Nap! Change Your Life.


I’ve fallen in love with it over the last several years and now I have scientific proof on how awesome it is!

YES!! :)


Naps are incredible.

And, thanks to Sara Mednick and her colleagues, we now know that naps are not only enjoyable but they’re scientifically proven to boost our performance and increase our overall health and happiness.

In her great book, Take a Nap! Change Your Life., Sara provides a super fun, quick-reading exploration on the whys and hows of napping.

I loved it and I think you will, too.
