In college I mastered the nap. I’d come back to my dorm room between classes and have two minutes to swap books and get to the next class and I’d spend 30-45 seconds of those two minutes asleep on my bed.
At one point, I had a list on my door of the different levels of napping, with time ranging from 30 seconds to 20 minutes. Though I don’t remember the exact details, I will attempt to recount the categories for you here.
- Nano-nap: 30 seconds-2 minutes
- Micro-nap: 2-5 minutes
- Mini-nap: 5-10 minutes
- Macro-nap: 10-15 minutes
- Power nap: 15-20 minutes
- Full Night’s Sleep: Over 20 minutes
