We asked you to vote on a question you’d like answered, and 47% of you picked:

☕What is a caffeine nap (AKA a ‘coffee nap’ or a ‘napuccino’)?

Maybe you’ve reached for a cup of coffee or a soda to beat an afternoon slump. Or maybe you’ve taken a catnap to help you power through the afternoon. But have you ever considered doing both? Combining caffeine and a nap can make each more effective.

Caffeine nap supporters usually drink coffee just before taking a brief nap — about 15 to 20 minutes long. A short nap like this is long enough to alleviate sleepiness without increasing grogginess upon awakening, because you wake up before entering N3 sleep, i.e., the deepest stage of sleep. If your caffeine window is still open, meaning you’re at least six hours (or even eight hours for many people!) away from bedtime, and you’ve got a few minutes for a snooze, a caffeine nap might be the key to afternoon alertness.
