While I'm not telling you to walk out of work because you need a nap, HolidaysCalendar.com says naps can actually improve your health.
Here are some facts they came up with in a favor of taking that much needed nap, especially on a day like today.
- Naps around of 30 minutes or less are best for improved short-term alertness.
- Napping three times a week results in a 37% decrease in heart related deaths
- Naps can improve performance by 34%

To no surprise, social media is firmly against daylight saving time and in support of National Napping Day.
National Napping Day is celebrated on the first Monday after daylight saving time kicks in. It's been an annual unofficial holiday since 1999.
