➡️ Siesta is a short nap taken in the early afternoon, often after the midday meal.

💡 Dalí suggested in his book 50 Secrets of Magic Craftsmanship (1948) that a nap is sufficient “for your whole physical and psychic being to be revivified by just the necessary amount of repose.” Decades later, research shows that Dalí’s advice holds up: naps if timed correctly, can be a useful tool for boosting cognitive function, emotional regulation, and creativity. For people who regularly get a full night’s sleep (between 7–9 hours for adults), 20 minutes is probably a better option.
👍 Not at all a siesta fan, no problema. At the very least, take some rest time during the day, without your phone, internet, or any kind of external stimulation.
