For good or for bad our brains are more like PCs and they are like Macs. Just like a PC the rim and our brains tends to get cluttered up, and unless you're running a RAM optimizer something a refresher ram your probably going to have to reboot on a regular basis.
How do you reboot your brain?
You reboot by sleeping at night, there's a direct correlation between the amount of available RAM and the amount of REMs you experience everynight. The only problem is that the modern world has made all of us so extra productive that are ram fills up to quickly before we get a chance to sleep it off and reboot.
Now possibly more so than ever before, it's more important for people to take power naps. Taking a power nap in the middle of the day can refresh your ram without having to do a full reboot your system.
Years ago when I was in the military, I typically worked 12 hour shifts seven days a week. I would work six hours, get an hour for lunch, and work six more hours, 11 hours off and start all over again. That's a hard schedule to maintain for a long amount of time. It's also hard to stay on top of your game when your working hours are that long.
I would typically take a power nap shortly after launch. It only took me about 20 to 30 minutes to eat, and that left me with 20 to 30 minutes to power nap. It's the perfect time to nap right after you eat lunch because your body needs the rest and the extra energy to process all the food in your system. So it's easy to fall asleep, and you wake up refreshed and ready to tackle the day all over again.
Now for many of us especially working in the corporate world, it's difficult to envision how we can squeeze a power nap into our day. It's taken many of us years if not decades to figure out how to squeeze a trip into the gym, and now it or how to take a nap?
This evening I came across a very useful guide that sums up many of the things I learned in the military and several more that helps make it applicable to the professional world. For several great tips and pointers and guidelines for taking a successful power nap check out The Ultimate Guide to Power Napping.
