Everything You Need to Know About Napping

This Monday (March 12, 2012) was National Napping Day.  Who knew?  

Apparently this holiday was created by a professor and his wife thirteen years ago to bring attention to the benefits of napping.  They chose the day after Daylight Savings, since most people are more "nap-ready" after losing an hour of sleep.

We live in a culture where sleep-deprivation is the norm, even a badge of honor.  Napping has been shown to increase alertness, improve memory and even decrease your risk of getting heart disease.  

In honor of my new favorite holiday, here's a pretty rad infographic on napping.


When was the last time you napped?
