Re: Self Transcendence & Meditation better than nap - NY times 2006-Oct-24
- What a great site. Thanks Prachar. I appreciated the new blog too.
At the blog I found link to a recent NY times piece I had missed.
Could be good for those giveing courses on meditation at various
locations. It shares recent research which documents that meditation
is better than an afternon nap
The study found that alertness was the highest after meditation,
followed by caffeine, exercise and then napping.
This forum may have interest in future results if they also go on to
test intentionally combining napping and meditation. Ahhhhh
