Be Quoted in Best Nanny Newsletter -- Take Monthly Poll About Sleep Issues

Do You Get Enough Sleep?

A new study reports that napping can improve the brain’s ability to absorb new information. Do you ever have the opportunity to nap? Do you get enough sleep overall?

Roni Caryn Rabin reports on a new study showing the power of a power nap:

It turns out that toddlers are not the only ones who do better after an afternoon nap. New research has found that young adults who slept for 90 minutes after lunch raised their learning power, their memory apparently primed to absorb new facts.

Other studies have indicated that sleep helps consolidate memories after cramming, but the new study suggests that sleep can actually restore the ability to learn.

The April 2010 Be the Best Nanny Monthly Guide will discuss sleeping.

Be quoted by taking our nanny and au pair poll about sleep on the top right corner of our blog at:

The results will appear in the April 2010 issue of the nanny trade publication.

I take naps when the baby does sometimes. Getting more sleep is one of the most productive things we can do for ourselves. Can't wait to see the results of the survey!
