If you love sleeping, then we have good news for you. Afternoon naps might be good for your brain. A study found a correlation between afternoon naps and improved mental agility and cognitive function.

The study involved more than 1,500 elderly subjects. They all claimed to be afternoon nappers—meaning that they like taking naps after lunch. The naps last longer than five minutes but less than two hours. The scientist also measured more than 600 non-nappers of the same age.

There were three major findings. First, elderly individuals who took afternoon naps showed significantly higher cognitive performance. Second, higher levels of TG (triglycerides) were found in napping elderly individuals. Finally, afternoon napping helped with orientation, language function, and memory.

It is important to mention that each subject group reported an average of 6.5 hours of sleep per night. This means that daytime nappers were complementing their nighttime sleep instead of compensating for overnight sleep disruptions.

The researchers also noted that not all daytime naps are beneficial. Particularly, naps longer than two hours can actually hurt your cognitive function, so make sure to set an alarm!
