Middle Schoolers Need More Naps, Researchers Say


Pre-teens and teens are known for being sleepy, and now researchers are strongly suggesting that naptimes should be worked into each school day for middle-schoolers. 

University of Denver researchers found kids who napped five to seven days a week had: 

  • Sustained attention
  • Better nonverbal reasoning ability 
  • Better spatial memory

The optimal nap time is between 30 and 60 minutes, but researchers also suggest that the students shouldn't nap after 4 p.m.
