It has been prescribed by all doctors and psychiatrists that a human being should have a peaceful and good sleep for 7 to 9 hours in a day. However, it has been observed that with urban lifestyle and growing fast-paced life people are killing sleeps to cope up. This is resulting further into stress creation, leading to depression, and even more dangerous and serious outcomes.
In order to bring down on such a lifestyle, doctors recommend taking 7-9 hours of sleep by breaking it into several times of the day. In case, you are unable to sleep peacefully for 7-9hrs at night, get it done during your daytime. For example, powers nap at work place or inbetween domestic work. Power nap is extremely rejuvenating for the body and mind.
