How to Nap

Do you want to take the perfect nap?  Follow the steps below.

  • Make sure there are no distractions (you won’t get a world-class nap at work or school).
  • Make sure you have no other commitments — an unfinished to-do list can linger on your mind and prevent you from getting to sleep.  Quiet Your mantra (counting sheep or “Z’s”).
  • Wear comfortable clothing, something light and soft.
  • When washing sheets, add a scent that you enjoy, such as lavender.
  • Arrange pillows and covers suitably. Make sure there are no wrinkles in the sheets, as they can cause discomfort. If you don’t have a pillow, use what you can in your environment — rest your head on your hands, use a sweatshirt, etc.
  • Go to the bathroom, you can’t take a nap bouncing up and down.
  • Turn off all lights, TV, music, and other distractions.
  • Lie down in a comfortable position.
  • Close your eyes and think of pleasant visions.
  • Relax and breathe softly and slowly.
  • Set an alarm
