You Need To Take A Nap: It Boosts Heart And Brain Health, Reduces Stress, And More!

I have always enjoyed the value of a solid nap!

What is definitely a fact is that our modern society is sleep deprived, so such power naps can possibly alleviate our so-called sleep deficits, as they can boost our brains, and improve our problem-solving skills, verbal memory, perceptual learning, object learning, and statistical learning.

Napping was found to improve reaction time, help with math, and logical reasoning, improve mood, and treat fatigue. It is also excellent or the heart, stress, weight management, and blood pressure.

Do you want to stress less, sleep better, and feel abundantly happier... without drugs or anything crazy?

According to the National Sleep Foundation, naps can be typed in three different ways:

-- Planned napping (also known as preparatory napping) involves taking a nap before one actually gets sleepy. This technique can be used to prevent tiredness and fatigue, or when one knows that he will be up later than the normal bed time

-- Emergency napping occurs when one suddenly feels very tired and cannot go on with the activity he was engaged in at that time. This nap type often helps to treat drowsy driving or fatigue while using heavy and dangerous machinery.

-- Habitual napping is a routine practiced when a person takes a nap at the same time each day. Young children usually fall asleep at about the same time every afternoon, or adults take a short name every day after lunch.

One Greek study found that adult men who took an afternoon nap at least three times per week were 37% less likely to die from a heart-related disease compared to those who never take a short afternoon nap.

Taking a nap (siesta) after lunch is a custom in many countries, and all of these countries have a lower rate of fatal heart attacks. On the other hand, afternoon naps are not advocated in the U.S. and the UK, where heart attacks are the leading cause of death.

Napping apparently offers numerous health benefits, including improved heart health, stress relief, improved memory, enhanced memory and cognitive performance, increased alertness, and improved relaxation.

Napping has amazing psychological benefits, and a short nap can be a pleasant luxury, a mini-vacation, time that will relax the body and mind and boost rejuvenation.

A groundbreaking 1995 NASA study evaluated the effects of napping on 747 pilots, and a part of them was allowed to take a 40-minute nap every day.

The findings revealed vigilance performance improvements from 16% in median reaction time to 34% in lapses compared to the No-Rest Group.

Apparently, even a very short nap has its benefits, but the length of a nap determines the benefits you will experience, as follows:

20 Minute Nap – It enhances memory, mental alertness, and motor learning skills.

20 To 30 Minute Nap – It boosts creativity and boosts memory.

30 To 60 Minute Nap – It enhances decision-making skills and memory

60 To 90 Minute Nap – It ensures REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep, so it is the most beneficial nap type. It helps you reset the brain, and has a dramatic effect on the problem-solving skills.

Therefore, we can all benefit from napping during the day. However, if you suffer from some sleeping disorders, it might not be wise to take a daytime nap since it might interfere with your ability to fall asleep at night.

Just A Matter Of Minutes

Perhaps the most interesting factor in life is that all it takes for a drastic life change is just a moment. This can be good or bad. In a moment you can lose everything, say the wrong thing, or trip and fall into a lifetime injury. But at the same time, our whole identity is created in moments, such as the moment of your first kiss, the last time you see someone you loved, or the moment you hold your newborn baby for the first time.

This set of twins was born within just minutes of each other. However despite being twins they were born on different days, different months, and even different years.

Did The Hospital Make A Mistake?

Now it's easy to wonder: "how could this even happen?" Maybe in the heat of the moment, a staff member accidentally wrote the wrong date on the birth certificate or the system made an error.

But the situation was much simpler. What happened was that parents Fatima Madrigal and Robert Trujillo of Greenfield welcomed a son named Alfredo into the world on New Year’s Eve at 11:45 p.m, their local time. Now that part makes sense. What makes this story interesting is that exactly fifteen minutes later, another baby pushed out and the couple welcomed Alfredo’s twin sister Aylin. This put the time of her birth to be on New Year’s Day, a whole day, month, and year ahead of her brother's. Now he can always claim to be the oldest and no one can argue against it.

The Magic of A Unique Birth

Thankfully both babies came out healthy, despite the complications that the birth of twins can sometimes face. Aylin was welcomed into the world at 5 lbs., 14 oz., while her big brother, Alfredo weighed 6 lbs., 1 oz. Even their parents were amazed that their children now had different years on their birth certificates. The mother explained: "It's crazy to me that they are twins and have different birthdays."

Although this might not be the first time this happens, twins with different birthdays are rare, and the chance of twins being born in different years is about one in 2 million. These babies defied the odds from the moment they came into the world, now they can take that with them for the rest of their lives.

Imagine The Birthday Parties

Dr. Ana Abril Arias, who oversaw the delivery said that it was certainly one of the most memorable deliveries of their career. It's interesting thinking about how the twins will lead their lives after they've made such a remarkable entrance.

Twins often feel like they are in competition with one another, in an attempt to build their own identity and feel unique. Now they can have birthday parties a day apart and really feel like, despite their connection as twins, they're both still unique individuals.

Twins Make For Only 3% Of American Births

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are typically 120,000 twin births every year in the United States. The births make up just over 3 percent of all births, however, which is a considerably small percentage. Their uniqueness allows them to tap into abilities that help them form really strong bonds. They sometimes can even tap into abilities that the average person can't access. For instance, 40% of twins invent their own languages, some even say that they can almost read each other's minds. This could be due to the fact that twins start interacting in the womb at 14 weeks.

However, they also hold their differences. In fact, Identical twins have different fingerprints and twins can even have completely different skin tones.

Stranger Things Can Happen

The year is just beginning and yet newborn babies made headlines within seconds of coming into this world. It puts into perspective how quickly someone's existence can make an impact, and how simple that impact can be. This year, ask yourself how you can make your mark, and watch its ripple effects.
