Friday Favorites: The Fine Art of Napping

Most of us just don’t get enough sleep. Eight hours a night? Ha! With my early-morning work schedule, I would have to be in bed and soundly asleep before 8 p.m. every night to meet that requirement. Needless to say, that NEVER happens. Therefore, I am a huge believer in the benefits of napping. A 20-minute early-afternoon power nap is usually all I need to boost my energy and get me through the rest of the day.

There really is a science to napping. Check out this great graphic, How to Nap, courtesy of Boston.com, for everything you need to know about when, why, and how to nap.

According to the National Sleep Foundation, Winston Churchill, John F. Kennedy, Albert Einstein, and Thomas Edison all practiced regular afternoon napping, so don’t feel guilty about following in the footsteps of these great men. Nap proudly!
