The key to understanding how to nap more effectively is a familiarity with the sleep cycle (00:47). Effective power napping takes advantage of the lighter stages of sleep, specifically stages 1 and 2. Deeper sleep (meaning stages 3 and 4) is more restorative sleep that is best kept for overnight. Napping into deeper sleep stages is more likely to result in sleep inertia, feeling groggy, and even oversleeping.
