5 Nap Strategies You Need to Know. by Max Barrett. October 14, 2016. 1 Comment.

Share it: Not all naps are created equal. If you think a nap is a nap is a nap, we’ve got news for you. Naps vary in length, intensity and function.

There are hundreds (maybe thousands) of different nap styles. Some already have cachet (see: The Power Nap), while. The Nap-A-Latte. This is my favorite strategy for those days when your energy is really lagging and you need a quick lift.

The Nap-A-Latte combines a moderate amount of caffeine with a. By choosing a shorter nap time of about 20–45 minutes, you’ll wake up before you go into a deep sleep and avoid a post-nap fog. You can also choose one full sleep cycle—which lasts about 90 minutes—if you need a complete recharge.

A recent study found that a 90-minute nap (but no longer) can boost cognitive function, giving you the. As babies get older, nap times typically become more predictable. For example: Ages 4 months to 1 year. After the newborn period, your baby will likely nap at least twice a day — once in the morning and once in the early afternoon. Some babies also need a late-afternoon nap.

You might aim to have your baby nap at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Just don’t stop paying attention to getting the nightly rest you need. The Nap A Latte™.

This is my favorite strategy for those days when your energy is really lagging and you need a quick lift. The Nap A Latte™ combines a moderate amount of caffeine with a short period of rest, to deliver you the benefits of both at once. Here’s how it. “Tell your child, ‘You can sleep, be awake, or sing, but you have to stay put,'” he says. “Don’t make an appearance as you would at night because there are more distractions during the day.

The nap throws things off because your child doesn’t need the extra sleep. As a result, he may take longer to fall asleep at night, go to bed later, or wake up earlier in the morning. Continued. 10 To 20 Minutes. This is arguably the most effective nap length (unless you have an hour and a half to spare, of course).

Tento 20-minute naps will help you perk up with little to no. Children of the same age can have different sleep patterns, which nominated supervisors and educators need to consider within the service. As per Standard 2.1 (element 2.1.2) of the National Quality Standard, each child’s comfort must be provided for and there must be appropriate opportunities to meet each child’s sleep, rest and relaxation. Taking deep breaths slows down the heart rate, lowers blood pressure, and promotes a feeling of being in control. Anyone can use this technique.

Coach children to simply breathe in deeply. ( two, three) and hold ( two, three) and release ( two, three). Repeat until relaxation—or sleep—happens.

  • Hi, guys! Totally had the baby already (for those of you wondering). A few quick things…
    1.) If you’re thinking of trying out time-restricted eating after this podcast, do not let your data go to waste! Dr. Panda’s group has a clever way of taking volunteer data from a broad international cohort and using it for scientific research right through your mobile phone. Please think of participating! Learn more here at myCircadianClock.org. Also make sure to follow Satchin on Twitter at twitter.com/satchinpanda.

    2.) This episode has a dedicated page on the FoundMyFitness website with super extensive resources, including an in-depth timeline with links to studies discussed, a glossary and other show notes. Make sure to check that out at foundmyfitness.com/episodes/satchin-round-2. Getting this page out was a big milestone for us and reflects the standard we hope to strive for with all new episodes going forward. If you love this… hug a crowdsupporter today. Or become one at foundmyfitness.com/crowdsponsor.

    3.) TONS of podcasts already on the calendar. Stay tuned.:)

  • Hi love these catch ups so informative! Just wondering if a squeeze of lemon in water in the am before u break your fast is that technically breaking the fast or should i do it closer to when i comsume food?

  • I wonder if she’s met Jordan Peterson through Joe Rogan. JP and his daughter have serious problems they have largely solved through diet. I wonder if she’d have some insights or recommend time-restricted eating for their inflammation issues.

  • Why do doctors keep telling people to ‘avoid stress’? It is almost impossible to avoid stress unless you completely isolate yourself or you live in a bubble. The best you can do is learn coping techniques so that you aren’t overwhelmed when life inevitably gets stressful. Stop trying to avoid it and start trying to deal with it.

  • My daughters sleep regression started at 8 months. She’s almost 10 months now and it’s only getting worse. She will full on scream for over an hour until she’s picked up. Getting her to sleep is a struggle, but getting her back to sleep in the middle of the night is even worse.

  • QUESTION!! I’m on an eating schedule of 9:30am-8pm. If I wake up and start a long alpine hike at 5am, and can wait until my eating schedule, but feel like I need to hydrate with my pink salt/ACvinegar mixture, will I start my circadian clock by drinking that mix since there are calories? What do I do? Thanks!! Will G.

  • Is there a possible placebo effect going on with some people’s positive outcomes? Like maybe just because they hear this and put it into effect and their minds are constantly focused on this it changes things

  • I have autism and I find a lot of comfort in a weighted blanket. You can get them in lots of sizes and weights. It’s very soothing! If there is trouble with physical contact, but they are having issues, the weighted blanket can be used similar to a hug; releasing endorphins, without the person to person contact.

  • Hi Dani. I’m in need of some help. Baby just turned 5months old. She still wakes every few hours. She doesn’t drink a lot after her bed time (7.30) how do I know if she is crying cause she’s hungry or another reason?

  • My 9 month old has beee sleeping in his crib fine since he was a 4 months old. Now he refuses to sleep in his crib but as soon as I put him on his baby mattress he has in our living room he sleeps with no problem. He goes to bed at 8:30pm. Please help me!!! What should I do to make him love his crib again!

  • My baby Dani is 10 months 1 week old, he used to sleep as follows:
    1) first nap from 10 am till 12
    2) second nap from 3 till 4:30 or 5 pm
    3) overnight sleep starting from 8 pm till 7 am without waking up.

    3 weeks ago he started waking up once during the night.

    To be honest, since we used to be out for the past 2 weeks after 8 pm, his bedtime was changed to be 10:30 sometimes 11 pm.

    One week ago he suddenly started crying whenever we put him to sleep in his crib. He used to sleep alone on specific timea but now he is standing all the time crying and screaming.

    He is learning how to walk and all his front tooth are up already.

    He learned how to sit in his bed after pulling himself up 2 months ago so I believe this is not the reason.

    My wife wants to keep him in his bed crying until he sleeps and I want to hold him or sleep with him in his crib until he sleepa but this is very tiring.

    1) what should we do? We are having alot of fights over this issue hhhh
    2) how many hours should we expect him to sleep at this age (first nap, second nap and overnight sleep).

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

  • Hey my baby cant sleep if we dont feed him just before the nap and as we are trying to avoid the Breastfeeding, we have a tough time as he is already 2 yrs old and yet being very cranky after 4 hrs of sleep at night. Please suggest

  • mine sleep all night no problem but during the day since he turned 9m old he struggle to sleep and hates holding him and swing (he do get woozy but after few sec wide open eyes ) he always try to climb so it’s impossible during the day to let him fall asleep by himself:(
    any advice?

  • Does consistency of fasting matter, e.g. one day my eating window is between 12pm to 8pm, but on another day it’s 5pm to 1am, and on another it’s 2pm to 10pm.

  • There is free software (f.lux) that will change the colors of your computer screen automatically over the day.
    At night it removes the blue light that disrupts your circadian rhythm. It works very well. You can download
    the app here: @t

  • Dr Rhonda Patrick, can you please clarify about the experiment when mice were radiated in the evening and they retained 85% of their hair, were they nocturnal and when you translate that to human, does that mean that radiation is better done in the morning since human are not nocturnal? Thank you in advance

  • im suffering every night with the last step which is gettin him back to bed but it seem meanings lost becouse im tired with it one month with that is realy crazy what can i do more?is there any solutions!!.

  • Good information. And first hand information coming from a horse’s (Researcher’s) mouth.I am definitely going to adopt this life style. From intermittent eating method I am going to intermittent fasting. Watch this place for my updates.

  • Well if you last meal is at 6pm and you go to bed at 10pm it’s only a few waking hours without food I find it easy been doing it for a long time..
    however socially when friends asked to meet up in the evening for meal or beer etc it’s a tricky one

  • i tried, this app is full of bugs, constant errors, for several minutes trying to submit each picture, food is getting cold, after two weeks of suffering i gave up, don’t need this additional stress.

  • i started 10 hours window then 9 and then 8, after few months now I am doing 1 to 4 hours max. trust me even 4 hours window now i feel bloated

  • it says the app is only for iPhone. I have an excel spreadsheet of my fasting for the last 85 days. If you want it you can email me and I’ll send it to you along with any additional information you’d like. I had a gallbladder attack I charted, weight lose and basic diet.

  • Please do video on nighty potty training
    My toddler is dry during day for 4 months and night dry for 2 weeks with just a pee in between in the potty. But now she is just not holding it in the night with bed wetting every day. What could have gone wrong?

  • I’d love to hear about bullerproof Coffee and intermittend fasting.

    I like my coffee with Coconut Oil in the morning at 8.00.
    After this i eat lunch at 13.00 and Dinner at 22.00.
    So without my coffee i would be fasting 15 hours. But if you count the coffee it would be only 10 hours.

  • this is just my opinion but Dr. Panda says he has a 10hr/12 hr window
    from 7am/8am to 5pm/6pm
    this isn’t really time-restricted eating… this is just normal eating, isn’t it?
    for years I intuitively eat an early dinner 6pm/7pm and the next meal would be 10am/2pm depending on how I feel or what day it is… weekends are usually closer to 12pm/2pm

  • What can I do? My son is three and now he speaks but he wants to tell everything before he sleeps, it may take hours. What is better to do stop him or not, if not he will talk for hours.We also read book before, he says about other things different.

  • Blacking out the bedroom early bedtime tried those he wakes every 2 hours to feed he ends up sleeping on our chests and not his crib the struggle is real

  • Hi guys, great video Question: What’s the opinion on further time restricted eating in a further compressed window below 8 hours? Or even more aggressive bellow 4 hours? Interested in your thoughts

  • Is it possible that there’s a natural variation in WHEN a human’s insulin sensitivity is “best”? I ask because I was raised in the culture of breakfast-is-the-most-importantmeal of the day, but I have NEVER, not once in my life, had any desire whatsoever to eat anything, not even something I really like, before noon-ish. And it isn’t a conscious decision or a lack of time, my body just doesn’t want any food then. And if, for whatever reason, I do eat in the morning I feel kind of nasty for hours, if not all day.

  • I had to cringe all the time how they called 12 to 14 hours of not eating as “fasting”…  I battled obesity for 30 years. 4 years ago, I finally won the battle. Different methods, the struggle was huge to get rid of 50 kg bodyweight while packing on muscle. My point is, switching from 16/8 to 20/4 and meanwhile 21/3 made a HUGE difference. So, 14/10 is no way near an effective time restricted eating approach. Either less so is 12/12. If you use a Glucometer and observe your blood glucose during a fast, you will see when your body starts being really empty on glucose energy. During my intraday fast, my BG decreases slowly all the way down to 72 to 76. It starts in the morning with 100 or so. People need to start eating according to their energy needs. A Glucometer might help. I always workout fasted and stay fasted after my workouts for at least 8 hours. This is what mimics evolutionary behavior. This is how I get the most anabolic systemic response and the strongest signaling. I have built a lot of muscle on that protocol and have the best body composition of my life. A certain exercise form is also important to mimic optimal anabolic systemic response. No Amino Acids or supplements or peri workout nutrition. The pure primal protocol. I workout only 10 minutes per day and eat 4500 caloric during my 3 hour window. I can eat 400 grams of carbs and will have the same ketone count like a zerocarber at the 20th hour of my fast. The fasting magic starts happening usually around the 14th to 16th hour. if you start eating then, you basically shut the process off. 20/4 for the win. Please stop calling 12/12 or 14/10 time restricted eating…:) I also always eat at the same time in the evening. Starting at 7 PM until 10 PM. Finally the first time that I heard someone admitting that all this fixed Circadian interpretation might not be correct. Feeding and Fasting sets the major clock. it overwrites all other clocks. According to my post prandial blood glucose I am extremely insulin sensitive. I can stuff 2500 calories with starchy foods, protein and tons of olive oil as my first meal in my 3 hour window and my BG wont go above 120 mg/dl. After 60 minutes I am down to 95. So, studies of people who have not set their own clocks yet by (feeding/fasting) and get tested how they react at certain times might not be the best basis to say, that insulin and BG response in the morning is better than in the evening. Dr. Panda admits this himself at minute 46. Think outside the box.

  • These videos are so informative I just love them. They’ve helped me so much with my son! Thank you into the spectrum!! You guys rock!

  • Hello! My daughter is almost 10 months old. Since she was 4 months old she goes to sleep in her crib around 6:30-7pm, with minimal fussing while she gets comfortable. So falling asleep is not an issue. However, she will wake up every 3 hours wanting to eat. She is formula feed. I will make her a 6oz bottle and just give it to her in her bed as a survival tool for me to be able to get back to sleep. She will drink her bottle and fall right back to sleep with no fussing. We have tried to just give her her pacifier in the hopes that she just wants to suck on something. That will last long enough for me to get back in bed and comfortable. She will start crying and then eventually screaming until I give her a bottle. This is every night! My biggest worry is that she is getting too many calories but at her 9 month check up, her doctor was not worried and said that she is on track as far as growth. She only has 2-3, 6 oz bottles during the day and eats solids really well at meal times. Please Help!! Thank you so much! Kristal

  • The question for self testing with the juice at morning and lunch is what about dawn phenomenon? If you are a person with IR or just have a big liver dump early in AM, it will be artificially high at the start compared to testing at lunch.

  • Here’s what I’ve been doing. Time restricted during the necessary 14 hours(no eating, only water), then I allow myself coffee during the the last 2 hours of intermittent fasting. I think I get all the benefits of both. Thoughts?

  • How is a 12 hour eating window time restricted in any sense? Time restricted eating should be less than 8 hours minimum, and closer to 4 hours.

  • My son’s Dr recommended Melatonin to help with sleep. I have tried everything listed in your video and he still winds up in my bed. I was concerned about adding more meds to the ones he is already on.

  • on the issue of eating late, and melatonin influencing pancreas (min 48), it would be helpful to look at different cultures south European countries on average eat much later into the evening than do northerners yet my suspicion is that they don’t have higher prevalence of T2D or markedly elevated HbA1C. I am sure lot has to do with their sulfur-rich Mediterranean diet, higher UV/VitD exposure, etc. hence the actual timing of a meal may not be as important as other factors.

  • Have been Time restricting for several weeks. Begin eating at 8 am stop around 3pm. So 7 hour feeding window. Excellent diet. Not losing weight at all. Think I am gaining actually. But I CANNOT SLEEP!!!!! Help!!!! ANY SUGGESTIONS?? Im a Zombie. I am starting an exercise program hoping to wear myself out enough to sleep at night. Think I’m not losing cuz im not sleeping. Headache-y. Fatiqued. Help!!

  • My baby for the most part would sleep for 6 hours of the night before we moved. We just recently moved into my mother-in-law’s which has a bigger room for her, I haven’t change our nightly routine however, she won’t stay sleep at night. She has no problem with napping during the day however, at night, is a nightmare. Please help!

  • I am curious as to what kind of wrist-watch is Dr Panda wearing? What is it with the white layer next to the skin? Is that some kind of measuring device?

  • I myself practice the diet routine Dr Rhonda and Dr Satchin discussed at 47:34. I wake up at 8am everyday but my first bite of food is often at 12pm and have dinner at 7pm. If any research needs human volunteers, I can be one.

  • Hi, I must say that the tip about the overtired baby has really helped me with my child…We’re having some difficult time now, but I believe that when he’ll get more sleep the overtiredness will be solved:).

    Thank you!

  • Dr. Rhonda I love you and the work you do, however I feel like sonetimes the lines get blured between mice studies and what applies to humans. Mice are very different from humans. What is your basis on extrapolating the results from the feeding times in mice in humans?

  • I find his voice so incredibly soothing. I could listen to him read product labels or instruction booklets and be in heaven. Not to mention his amazing knowledge and expertise on TFE. Fabulous!

  • I have a six year old son who wants me to lie down with him in bed. He goes to sleep quickly but as soon as i get out of his bed he wakes up.he then comes to my bed n sleeps there. If i take him back to his bed he again wants me to lie down with him………
    Pls help

  • Honestly, bi-polar and insomnia go hand in hand. For many bi-polar people, myself included, telling them to “avoid sleep deprivation” is like telling an ice cube “avoid melting in warm weather”

  • Hello i have a 5 year old and he has trouble going to sleep also. He wants to constantly run or walk back and forth. He wants to also play alot at night time. He refuses to stay in bed and comes into our room. It has been difficult because we also have a 3 month old. Help any advice would be appreciated.thanks for reading and responding.

  • Hello, when I try to sleep train her, she starts crawling and try to jump from bed. Then she get afraid and start crying more loudly. So its scary for both of us. Please help me. How can I train her

  • Hi, I am interested in participating in RTE experiments.I am a male,63,live in india.i am a retired person and can spend as much time as is required by experiment.

  • In regards to SCN and TRF..is there a best time to take thyroid hormone? I don’t have a thyroid. Best at night before bed or an hour before breakfast in the morning?

  • So my niece thinks it’s a game to nap time. We will change her diaper lay her down give her her bottle passifire and make sure she’s comfortable. But the minute we leave the room she rolls over and starts jumping and laughing and squeezing and will throw her passifire and we have to go in there several times and even use mama lion voice it’s nap time go to sleep. But it takes almost an hour of this when we can see how tired she is. I need some help to give my sister some peace of mind

  • My friend uses a gray sound machine when she puts him to bed. We put a gate up at his door to keep him in his room. He is 4 years old and tends to wander after everyone else is sleeping. We do the brush your teeth and pj routine. The sound machine is a lifesaver!

  • Time restricted feeding works great for me…. I stay in a fasted state for about 14 to 16 hours a day and take in all my calories in an 8 to 10 hour eating window. I like to skip breakfast and break the fast in the afternoon. I wake up ever morning in mild ketosis. My Macronutrient Ratio is;
    50% 60% healthy fat (olive oil, avocado oil, avocados, nuts, whole eggs, lean meats, oily fish)
    20% protein (lean meats, fish, nuts and eggs)
    20% 30% carbs (plants)

    This diet plan is working great for me right now…it keeps by body fat around 10% and I have a lot of energy to workout. I might change the Macronutrient Ratio down the road but it’s working for me now.

  • I just downloaded the app but I’m on a prolonged fast right now. I’m planning to start the app when I eat again however, is it ok that I’ll be fasting most days?

  • Yea I’ve already tried all of those. It’s been over a month he wakes up every night between 2 and 3 and the only way he goes back to sleep is in the living room with me or in bed with me.

  • This is more run of the mill unicorns and sunshine up your ass click bait, no answers here that haven’t been parroted by the general scripted common answers, thanks anyhow.

  • OK so for people that does this, I have a question, how can I implement this with my life schedule. say day 1 im eating at 6 am, so I dont eat until 3 PM, that means my next meal is at 12 am at night? if you guys already had success, please shed some light.

    question 2: so they talked about this ZERO app and the circadian cycle(13 HOURS, at least according to the app). yet she emphasized multiple times that the optimal is 9-10 hours; not to mentioned she also emphasize that it should be LESS THAN 12 HOURS. So which one is it?

  • So, would there possibly be an optimal timing component to taking vitamins and supplements, just as there’s an optimal timing for pharmaceuticals?

  • Hi, Dr. Patrick, I first heard about the restricted time window eating when you were a guest @joerogan podcast. I was
    fascinated with all the science supporting it. I have a question for you concerning my schedule: I am a trainer and have
    early morning clients. My energy is at its highest in the e hours, I workout before training the 1st client, so that means I ‘ m
    up by 4. To stick to a12 hour window, I would have to eat my last meal very early. I go to bed early, at around 9pm. Any advice
    on how to manage my schedule? Thank you.

  • My one complaint with this pair of interviews is that the pre-diabetic frame is taken for granted. Modern society in a nutshell: we’re all prediabetic, all the time. But imagine a future TRE world, where the majority of the population had two full decades of adult TRE under their belts: would anybody still be prediabetic? In the red trucks: reactive TRE, in the blue trunks: sustained TRE. Red trunks getting too much homer love in this dialogue. The tiniest sustained increase in blood-glucose level instantly convinces us that blue trunks is weak at the knees. Really? I don’t think Mother Nature is quite so quick to send blue trunks packing, who hadn’t first left his intestinal tract unflossed (this was their metaphor) for twenty adult years.

  • i drink decaf because i like coffee and sipping in the morning, but i dont want caffeine. is the little bit of caffeine in decaf going to effect my liver?

  • Thank you, Tip #1 works, he likes toys that sooth him so he gets to pick a toy, Tip #3 works a set bed time which is 8:30 pm even when there is activity, he would say bed time because it’s his routine, which works, cause routine is the key for autism. Thank You

  • Very helpful about setting up the routine time to their current time then slowly adjusting it to needed set time. Thank you so much

  • Hi my son is 11 months old and he will only settle in his pram and then I put him in his cot but he wakes up rolls over and cry’s until I get him out and put him back in his pram is there anything that could help Thankyou

  • I tried gentle sleep training but it took him 4 hr and he was still awake and standing and playing what should I do at that point? For how long should I wait for him to fall asleep after I put him in his crib?

  • I was wondering, if drinking BCAAs or EAAs with my water in the morning will break my fast the same as black coffee? Since the gut will have to digest them as opposed to plain water.

  • i have autism brother that love game so much…. they always turn on the audio to loud…..my brother angry if they dont get any game..but if they got game… they really happy… im feel bad so much…. about 5-4 years experiencing this thing with my family…especially my mother… always care much to my brother and my mom dont have time to make their work………. only god can make this peacefull even we have go to find doctor and make operation…but still same…… i have bad life and half beautiful life… i wish i have a normal life like u all… ��
