Zzzz – It’s National Napping Day!

It’s not too late to take a few minutes out of the day to observe National Napping Day! The holiday was created in 1999 by Boston University professor William Anthony, and his wife Camille, as a means of spreading awareness about the health benefits of taking an afternoon nap. They chose this particular Monday because North Americans are more ‘nap-ready’ than usual after losing an hour of sleep on the weekend to daylight saving time. Numerous studies have indicated a quick 10-20 minute nap in the afternoon can increase alertness and productivity as well as have a positive impact on the napper’s mood.
