Taking a nap during day time may lower blood pressure level, gives a boost to energy level and helps in mood elevation.- A recent study has found.
As per Manolis Kallistratos, a cardiologist at the Asklepieion General Hospital in Voula in Greece. ” Midday sleep appears to lower blood pressure levels at the same magnitude as other lifestyle changes. ”
- A study at NASA on sleepy military pilots and astronauts found that a 40-minute nap improved performance by 34% and alertness 100%.
- Napping provides psychological benefits. A nap can be an easy way to get some relaxation and rejuvenation.
Nap during the day time may lower an average 5mm Hg drop in blood pressure.
“These findings are important because a drop in blood pressure as small as 2 mm Hg can reduce the risk of cardiovascular events such as heart attack by up to 10%,” said Kallistratos.
Wishing all a healthy and disease-free life.
