Who would have thought today of all days was National Napping Day? Many people do not even know that this day actually exists, but it does. Now some of you may say “this is just a silly reason just to sleep.” However, there is a good reason that they made the national napping day for people here is why.
It just so happens that in 1999 the thought of national napping day came to be a reality. The reason for it is because we have daylight savings time the night before. So, in order for people to catch up on their sleep for the one night, they came up with National Napping Day. Which if you think about it people now a days need more sleep than they are actually getting. Now if we could have this once a week for those that work 2 or 3 jobs or 16 to 18 hours a day now that would be the bomb for those that work the longer hours.
For an adult it is a proven fact that in order to function at your best it is recommended that they sleep between 7 to 9 hours. If you are like many people 7 to 9 hours of sleep is just not possible. But that is where are good nap if possible comes in. A nap will rejuvenate your body and mind so that you can think clearer than if you were to not get a nap.
However; It has also been proven that children from the ages of 6 to 13 need anywhere from 9 to 11 hours of sleep to function properly in their everyday activities. So the next time you or your loved ones have not slept like you should have you should really consider taking a nap to get your body and mind rested.
