{{ "Our nap pods are ideal for '\power naps\' - short naps during the day which provide you with more energy and help you relax during harder days. The benefits of naps are multiple and no longer need to be proven. A good midday nap increases alertness, boosts creativity and memory as well as improves perception, reduces risk of heart disease and stress level." | translate }}

{{"The scientistis advise to keep in mind the circadian rhythms between the wake cycle and sleep cycle, because there’s a time that’s essentially perfect for a nap.

{{ "Sleep is nowadays perceived as a luxury while it is a necessity." | translate }} {{ "The three main components of a healthy life are sport, diet and sleep."| translate }} {{ "We do quite a good job about sport and diet "| translate }} {{ "however we are constantly forgetting about something as important as SLEEP."| translate }} {{ "We all know that not everyone can afford 8 hours of deep and uninterrupted sleep every night," | translate }} {{ "but you can start taking care of yourself more doing \'coffee naps\'.

{{ "Magic behind 'the coffee nap'" | translate }}

{{ "Caffeine impacts our brain in a very sophisticated way. It is structurally similar to adenosine, the chemical molecule in our brains that causes drowsiness and makes us feel tired. It is least present when we sleep and we can observe its highest concentration during waking periods. It builds up as the days passes, slowing down the brain activity and makes us feel tired." | translate }}

{{ "As soon as caffeine enters our brain, it is trying to make its way through by competing with adenosine and eventually blocks the access to our brain receptors. The less adenosine, the more awake we are." | translate }}

{{ "The concentration of adenosine decreases when we take a nap and while the coffee has not yet kicked in (it takes around 20-30 minutes for our body to absorb caffeine), the adenosine does not need to compete with caffeine. As a result, when we wake up, our brain says 'goodbye' to adenosine, blocks the receptors to accummulate more adenosine and facilitates the absorbtion of caffeine." | translate }}

{{ "This is the whole chemical magic behind the the coffee nap." | translate }}

{{ "Siesta scientifically" | translate }}

{{ "There have been several studies investigating the phenomenon of 'coffee nap' such as" | translate }} {{ "Laboratory and field studies of naps and caffeine from 2006" | translate }}  {{ 'concluding that "napping plus caffeine helps improve performance and alertness of night-shift workers."' | translate }}

{{ "Another" | translate }} {{ "study about combination of caffeine with a short nap from 1997" | translate }}  {{ "demonstrates both behavioral and cognitive consequences of the coffee nap. The participants have been given a dose of 200 mg of caffeine following by a short 15-minute long nap. Later, they have been asked to participate in a driving test during a continuous monotonous afternoon drive in a car simulator. The conclusion was that people who took nap combined with caffeine had better driving performance comparing to the group of people who just took a nap or just took a coffee alone." | translate }}

{{ 'The researchers at The University of Pennsylvania remind that although consuming an increased doses of caffeine may seem to make us feel more alert and awake, remind that "it is important for caffeine consumers to understand that caffeine at any dose is not a chemical substitute for adequate healthy sleep and when the pressure for sleep is high, caffeine has little effect on preventing performance deficits and sleep attacks". In their' | translate }} {{ "study published in October 2014" | translate }}  {{ "it is revealed that while taking naps alone is an effective way to feel more awake, the inevitable side effect such as grogginness and inertia can be reduced by caffeine.
