We are currently in South America, home to some of the largest producers of coffee worldwide. For coffee lovers like us, we’re in caffeine heaven! We often like to use caffeine when napping, and find it works a treat for those mid-afternoon siestas!
Sleep and coffee – odd combination? It takes approximately 20 minutes for the effects of caffeine to kick in. Therefore taking a quick nap immediately after drinking a cup of coffee, should result in you reaping the benefits of your caffeine boost upon your awakening.
A study of drivers found that combining caffeine with a nap worked better than either caffeine or napping on their own. This combination eliminated the mid-afternoon slump that was observed in other drivers.
