Breezing through the day: The wonders of coffee naps

When talking about breakfasts and staying awake, coffee is definitely a staple. Some people just can’t greet the day with a smile unless they have their hot brew. Throughout the morning, it will provide them with the energy and spunk that they need.


However, things get a little sluggish once lunchtime arrives. The fatigue builds up and drowsiness kicks in by 1 PM. The workday is far from over, so they reach for another mug. That way, they’ll be able to finish all their tasks within the deadline. However, there is a way to improve performance even further. Just combine it with one of the greatest activities known to mankind, napping.

One of the things that napping and coffee have in common is that they help the person feel alert and motivated to do what they need to do. Combine the two and a powerful tool emerges. Researchers were able to see a positive correlation between concentration and coffee naps. It seems that they were more effective as compared to just drinking coffee or just taking a nap.


People only truly feel the effect of coffee after a half an hour has passed because it stays in the stomach for approximately 20 to 30 minutes before being absorbed by the small intestine. During that window, the hardworking employee or student should take a nap. Upon waking up, they will feel refreshed from the nap and energized from the coffee. Breezing through the tasks which were scheduled for the day just becomes so much easier.

Coffee is not just popular; it is ubiquitous. It is a multi-billion dollar industry that employs millions and delights several millions more. Latin America leads the world by total production, while the likes of Starbucks and McDonald’s (through McCafe) serve the bulk of espressos to tables. It is a major export commodity and a common financial item in many investment deals or even portfolios. Rich, aromatic, and potentially healthy, coffee is both an enjoyable power drink and a viable business.
