The advantages and disadvantages of daytime sleep are listed as follows: Speech: A short nap improves attention and memory 19:34

Stephen Bender, Director of the Clinical Center for Facial Pain and Sleep Medicine Studies at the University of Texas in the USA said The talk is that short naps during the day improve mental performance, while long naps (more than 30 minutes) can disrupt circadian rhythms and impair cognitive functions.

Bender said that the benefits of short naps during the day have been determined by numerous studies. Taking a 20-minute nap during the day can improve attention and memory, as well as alertness and reaction speed. It is also stated that recreation in this format is associated with the development of creative thinking.

Additionally, taking a nap during the day can help you learn new motor skills, such as playing a musical instrument. This is because such activity patterns occur in the brain during sleep.

The sleep medicine specialist added that naps may provide these benefits. Also, after a long daytime sleep (more than 30 minutes), a person may feel lethargic, disoriented, and have decreased mental performance during the following hours of waking.

Long daytime sleep can also interfere with nighttime sleep, leading to difficulty falling asleep or insomnia. Such disturbances in the regular sleep-wake cycle can cause general sleep deprivation, which can cause serious harm to health. Negative consequences of sleep deprivation include increased risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and hypercholesterolemia.
