Wellness Wednesday

Power Nap Like a Pro

A power nap is a short sleep that ends before deep sleep can occur. The goal of a power nap is to recharge your energy and wake up feeling more alert, cheerful, and productive. For the best power nap, follow these simple rules. 

Train Your Brain – Cue your brain to sleep by using a sleep mask, noise machine or by picking a cool, dark space where you’d typically sleep. 

Set an Alarm – Be warned 30 to 60 minutes could leave you feeling worse. The perfect nap length is only 20 minutes!

Time it Right – The afternoon lull is a natural time for your body to need a rest. Nap about an hour or two after lunch.

Get Back to Work – After your nap jump back into your day. If you need help waking up take a quick walk or splash some cool water on your face.

Not to worry, as blood drives are deemed an essential activity, as outlined by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The blood drive will still take place in Menomonie. It is an imperative part of community health and public preparedness plans to maintain blood collection during this challenging time to ensure patient survival.

It will now take place at Stout Ale House from 10-4 PM on Friday, April 10th.
