National Napping Day

Yes, today is National Napping Day.

I vote it my favorite holiday of the year and it couldn't come at a better time - National Napping Day is the first Monday after Daylight Saving Time.

Founded by Boston University professor William Anthony and his wife Camille in 1999, Napping Day is the unofficial holiday set aside to help people adjust to Daylight Saving Time and to highlight the health and productivity benefits of napping.

When we are forced to "spring forward," we lose that precious hour so it's much easier than normal to nap. We can all relate to that 3:30 mid afternoon blah, especially after a bad nights sleep with one less hour on the clock. Since most of us are at work, we must settle for the power nap, a 20 to 30 minute snooze. It's just a quickie to rejuvenate your mind and body.

So let's do what they do in Spain for centuries and take a siesta. Close your office door, roll up your jacket and take a snooze under your desk.

If your boss asks you what you're doing. It's simple, ask: "Didn't you know it's National Napping Day?"

Happy Napping!
