A new study by the University of Hertfordshire reveals that power nappers (67%) are more happy in life than long nappers (56%) and non-nappers (60%)
Professor Richard Wiseman tells Red Online: “Previous research has shown that naps of under 30 minutes make you more focused, productive and creative, and these new findings suggest the tantalizing possibility that you can also become happier by just taking a short nap.
Similarly longer napping is associated with several health risks and again, this is in line with our results. A large body of research shows that short naps boost performance. Many highly successful companies, such as Ben & Jerry’s and Google, have installed dedicated nap spaces, and employees need to wake up to the upside of napping at work.”
I moved into a new apartment in March. Lately, it feels like things are out of sort when I return home from work. Like someone has been inside my place. I suspect it may be my creepy maintenance man although I have no proof. I think some of my things have been moved! I have no money for a security camera and tenants aren’t allowed to buy a service like ADT. Do you have any suggestions on what I can do to bust my creeper? Can you ask your audience if they have ever experienced this. Did they use a sneaky method to bust someone?
