Napping can prolong your life

All parents know that napping for children is good. They always have their children take naps during the day but for some reason they do not do that themselves. However, parents should actually nap with their children because recent study showed that napping at least 3 times a week for 30 minutes can prolong your life. Greek scientists proved that if you can nap during the day, you have a 37% lower risk of dying of heart problems. Relaxing lowers your blood pressure and it also helps your brain.

Linen pyjamas can improve your nap time even more!

Below, there‘s some information on how napping can help you:

6 minute nap:  recent German study showed that 6 minutes are enough to activate memory performance (short-term memories are removed and so there‘s more space for thinking).

20 minute nap:  will slow your heart rhym, and you will be more attentive and in better mood.

40 minute nap: is good if you did not sleep last night; During  40 minute nap your brain will perform important memory release functions

90 minute nap: if you have the luxury of time, 90 minute nap will let you experience a full cycle of sleep, which allows your body to restore energy.

Some tips for great naps:

* prime nap time is from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

* use a face mask to provide daytime darkness

* assure that you will not be disturbed

* some people claim that drinking coffee and then taking an immediate nap works well. The caffeine kicks in somewhere between 10 and 20 minutes, waking them up with extra energy.

Linen + plastic? Why not!

A young Lithuanian designer Zygimante Astrauskaite from the Vilnius Art Academy decided that such a natural and eco-friendly fabric as linen can match quite well with used plastic packaging from snacks and other everyday items. Her collection ephasises both the current eco-friendly and recycling trends in fashion industry and the consumerism of today’s society. Check out some designs from the collection in the pictures below.
