Caffeine and napping have something in common. Both make you feel alert and can enhance your performance, whether that’s driving, working or studying. But some people are convinced that drinking a coffee before a nap gives you an extra zap of energy when you wake up.

How could that be? Is there any evidence to back the power of these so-called coffee naps? Or are we better off getting a good night’s sleep?
Feeling Sleepy?

If you don’t get enough sleep, you incur what researchers call a sleep debt. You can build up a sleep debt without realizing it, on purpose or when you feel you have no other option, like to meet work or other deadlines.

Taking a nap is a common way of overcoming your sleepiness and repaying your sleep debt. Drinking coffee can also help us get through the day. And since the 1990s, researchers have been studying how combining the two might help.

In a 1997 study, 12 sleep-deprived people drank the equivalent of one large cup of brewed coffee and five minutes later had the chance to nap for 15 minutes. They then did some driving tests in a simulator to check their alertness.

#MentalHealth is an issue everywhere in the world, 24/7/365. We as a society seem to discard the notion that someone is hurting if we cannot see the hurt.

“I absolutely worry about it. We all should at least think about it or acknowledge that possibility.” - Anonymous UFC fighter.

In 2020, 61.2% of 170 active MMA fighters surveyed by The Athletic were worried about long-term brain damage.

It is past the time to say we should ...look at this one day & start taking action against the leagues & governing bodies that want to sweep it under the table in the name of prestige or profits. This attitude is harming athletes simply by insinuating they shouldn't talk about it.
