I Need a Nap: How to Kip for Health & Beauty (No Nap or Sleep Pod Spa Needed)

Just in time for the clocks to fall back, when our sleep is interrupted – we’ve got a virtual spa nap for you. Yes, napping spas are a thing (aka nap bars, nap lounges, nap cafes) and more companies are offering sleep or nap pods and cabins for employees) but since we all don’t have one – let’s create a virtual nap spa at your office.

Listen on the bar at the bottom of the post.

We’ve got some tips to help you nap like a pro – excerpted from our interview with visionary & spa founder Nicolas Ronco. Who rejuvenated himself following sleep deprivation on a trip abroad, using naps and reflexology. Including:

  • why we are prehistorically programmed to nap for 20 to 40 mins between noon and 3pm daily
  • achieving the ideal position “zero gravity” when you’re in the office
  • how to create your napping nest with Aromatherapy, music and textiles
  • how a nap can help you be more rested and productive.

Did y’all know Salvador Dali practiced micro naps? He would fall asleep with a key in his hand above a plate, when he reached max slumber and dropped the key, the sound of it hitting the plate would awaken him!
