Naps Help Reduce Brain Shrinkage

Good news: you should take naps on a regular basis!

This is according to Dr. Victoria Garfield, who recently told BBC that naps could help reduce brain shrinkage.

And the best time to take a nap? After you eat lunch!

“There’s evidence that the post-lunch time is really good for a nap, and that evidence comes from previous studies,” Garfield said. “The reason for that is that after lunch you may be feeling a bit tired, and you may need a sort of boost in energy, a boost in cognition.”

Do you take naps regularly? How long are your naps typically? What are other ways can you keep your brain sharp?
