What Would You Do With Extra Leisure Time?
You tell us how you would like to spend an extra hour or two; we’ll help you figure out the best time to do it.*
How does 2 p.m. sound? A recent sleep study conducted at the University of California at Berkeley showed that a nap at this hour restored subjects’ learning capacity, making them better able to process information at 6 p.m. In contrast, the learning abilities of non-nappers plummeted. In the Berkeley study, subjects napped for 90 minutes. However, research from Harvard University shows that just 30 minutes is enough to clear your head.
