The National Sleep Foundation states that Americans are among some of those most sleep deprived. They go on to state that while naps will not replace lost sleep they will help improve moods, alertness, and performance. Some of the famous who believed in regular scheduled naps are Winston Churchill, John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, Albert Einstein, Napoleon an Thomas Edison. See! I'm in good company.
Did you know there are actually 3 kinds of naps?
- Planned naps. This is taking a nap before you actually get tired.You know you are going to stay up late so you catch a few zzzzzz's ahead of time.
- Emergency napping. You are suddenly so tired that you cannot continue, you need a nap. I've been known to pull over when I am driving and take a power nap!
- Habitual napping...now this is my kind of napping. Lunch is over! It's nap time. Today, tomorrow, and everyday you get a chance.
instead of sleeping. Now I just nap because I can.
Do you take naps?
Wouldn't you agree they should be a part of all of our lives?
