Timing is everything

The longer you nap the more likely you are to feel groggy afterwards. So shut your eyes for 20 - 30 minutes at a time and you will stay sharper and more alert. Also keep in mind that napping between 1pm and 3pm fits in best with your body’s natural rhythm. That way a little shut-eye will never interfere with your nighttime sleep.

- Select a sanitisation cycle to eliminate bacteria.*

Coffee works

Remember to drink a cup beforehand – it sounds crazy but the caffeine will only kick in after you wake up, so you can go about your day even more invigorated.

Nap peacefully

Fresh linen will make your nap even more refreshing.
