Video: Cat-Nap for Happiness

I love a good nap.  Sometimes it’s the only thing getting me up in the morning. ~ George Costanza, Seinfeld : George Sleeping Under His Desk

The Exhausted Modern World.
The modern world puts enormous value on being as productive as humanly possible, which translates into working through lunch, staying late at the office, scheduling play-dates up the wazoo (or is it gazoo?), taking extra classes. …. You name it, and we’re trying to fit it into our schedules. Our calendars are about to go up in smoke!

It almost feels punishing, doesn’t it?
When exhausted you function less efficiently, feel frustrated, overwhelmed, and guess what … you eat way more. Your body is sending signals that you are low on energy, because it needs more fuel to keep going!

Workplace accidents and errors peak at exactly the same times that our circadian rhythms cause a drop in alertness – between 2 and 5 p.m.!

Downtime/Nap Time: A Natural Part of Your Day.
Napping is an opportunity for our minds and body to take a break. Many mammals take naps; and in other parts of the world, napping a.k.a. siestas are worked into the daily routine.

Napping Promotes Health and Well-Being:
30 minute naps promote physical well-being, improve memory and mood;
20 minute naps sharpen your senses and revitalize you; and
10 minute naps can improve mood … feel happy!

If possible, take a nap at the same time every day and – need be – use an alarm clock (initially, anyway, until it becomes a part of your routine).

Napping is essential to your well-being. Go ahead, crawl up, in a comfy ball, under your desk and nap, George Constanza style.

Spread the word … NOT the icing!
