And from there it was concluded, those who like to nap tend to have a 36% higher risk of developing diabetes than those who never nap. A researcher from Leiden University Medical Center, Lucassen, revealed that napping is indeed beneficial for the health of some people. One of them is able to maximize the performance of the brain which is able to make someone think more creatively, but if it is done with a duration that is not too long with the function of returning some of the energy drained by your busy activities. But on the contrary, if it is done too long it will have a negative impact on your health because it can increase blood sugar levels which results in diabetes.
As reported by Live Science, diabetes is defined as a disease in the part of metabolism, where the blood sugar levels are too high which results in the body being unable to produce enough insulin. Lucassen added, the bad effect of napping also affects a person’s sleep at night. People who like to take naps tend to have a habit of staying up late at night so that their sleep needs at night are not met properly, so that hormone production in the body is disrupted and triggers diabetes. For that, so that your body is healthier, you should start immediately reducing the intensity of your nap. If you really can’t stand daytime sleepiness, you can do it, but on the condition that your sleep duration is not more than 2 hours. And ideally, nap time is from 1 pm to 3 pm, because that is the time the human body needs to rest.
