When I started the Morning KIIK Start show my biggest worry was being able to get up early each day. I am a night owl by nature. I was more likely to go to sleep at 4:30am rather than get up at that time.

As it turns out, getting up early isn't my issue - it is having to go to bed at 8pm-ish. It kills me to go to bed so early. I guess I figure I am going to miss something.

Coffee is the fuel that gets, and keeps, me going each morning, but researchers say coffee combined with a nap - a coffee nap - is the best way to recharge yourself during the day in a short amount of time. Because science.

I've tried this and it works. A cup of coffee, followed by a 20-30 minute nap over my lunch hour fires me up when I get feeling punchy around 11am each day.
