2 Take Power Naps
Another trick used by many people suffering from narcolepsy is to take regular power naps. These are short sleeps during the day, which can serve to top back up energy levels and provide stimulation to continue the day.
In order to power nap correctly, it is important to aim to sleep for around 40 minutes. This way, you should be able to complete one whole sleep cycle before you wake up. If you don’t give yourself that amount of time, then you might instead wake up from a deep sleep and this can cause sleep inertia – making you feel groggy and increasing the likelihood of waking hallucinations associated with hypnagogic states.
