New research from the University of California, Berkeley, shows that an hour’s nap can dramatically boost and restore your brain power. Indeed, the findings suggest that a biphasic sleep schedule not only refreshes the mind, but can make you smarter.
So what's biphasic I ask:
having two phases the patient's biphasic recovery curve.
Lovely. I know that's also really good for dream-therapy, or at least remembering your dreams. At one stage in my life for about a year I trained myself to wake up after each dream. First of all I set my alarm for 2am and 4am and wrote what I remembered, but then eventually I just awoke several times in the night wrote my dreams and went back to sleep. If our sleep sessions are shorter, it allows less of a line between awake mind and sleeping mind, and therefore opens a world of frequencies that rest in between. Frequencies that would usually only be accessible whilst sleeping can become available whilst we're awake.
Anyway, off now... but my new job means I can have a midday nap every day WHOO HOOO.
