BETHESDA (KXAN) — If you’re waking up tired and debating whether to nap or drink coffee, try both. Scientists call it “coffee naps” and they say it works.
They say drink a cup of coffee, then nap no longer than 20 minutes. Researchers say while you’re napping for 15 to 20 minutes, the coffee fights a chemical that your body produces that makes you feel tired. When you wake up from your nap, scientists say you feel rested and ready for the day.
