Sleep Disorders are Helped by Power Napping

Neurologists treating sleep disorders and sleep apnea have determined that most people need 7 -8 hours sleep a night. Studies of patients with sleep disorders have proven that taking a power nap around 1:00 – 2:00 in the afternoon can minimize the effects of sleep deficits caused by sleep apnea. The recommended nap is only 20-40 minutes long. Longer than that can cause excessive drowsiness.
