Drop and give me 30…minutes of sleep!
A new official health manual for the US army recommends “strategic and aggressive napping.” Aggressive! No dreamy, moody napping for you, soldier!
The new Holistic Health and Fitness manual acknowledges that sleep can help promote performance and wakefulness when soldiers are on the job. It tells soldiers to take “the longest nap possible as frequently as time is available.”
It also warns against using screens or alcohol before bed and suggests winding down with some soothing music, a book, or a warm bath. Aggressively warm and soothing, of course!
