10 Really Strange, Yet True Health Tips

Drink Coffee To Sleep Better

A Japanese study proved that ‘coffee naps’ make you much more productive than just regular ones. The study participants consumed 200 milligrams of caffeine (two cups of coffee) and right afterwards take a 20-minute nap. Apparently, when they woke up, they were much more alert and productive than those who simply took a nap without coffee.

  1. I’ve noticed this about coffee/caffeine. BUT, it only works for me when I’m tired, in the first place. So, I’m speculating that the participants of the study were already tired when they took the naps. Because I find that if I’m already alert, well rested and spry, the caffeine just makes me even more active. My interpretation is that caffeine, like many drugs, tends to accentuate the tendencies of the body. If one is sleepy, it makes one more sleepy. If one is alert, it makes one more alert. So, in this study, if the participants were more alert both with the nap and the caffeine, I’d say the caffeine pushed them into a deeper nap, and then, continued to kick in, making them more alert. Like I say, it intensified the already present tendencies of the body and it’s biochemistry. Of course, this is just my tested and retested personal experience: take it or leave it.
