Researchers at UC Berkley and NYU have found that taking rests can improve learning by 10%!
Google Headquarters have also recognised the importance of taking a rest or nap to boost brain productivity. This is the ‘nap pod’ which blocks out light and sound. Perhaps students will learn and remember more information if given opportunities to take a break.
Meanwhile, I wonder if catnaps on the train between patients will help boost my memory. 🙂
