Since 1999, the first day after Daylight Saving Time is National Napping Day. For everyone the time change means more sunlight at the end of the day, but for some, it means they lost an hour of sleep and they need rest. If you are feeling the effects of the time change, then take a nap.

The goal of National Napping Day is to encourage people to take a nap at home, work or on vacation and make it a regular part of their routine. It would be nice to be able to take a 20 minute power nap at work, but that is usually frowned upon. Recent studies show napping is heart-healthy and in may also help you learn. Many athletes report taking a nap before a big game or match and Winston Churchill, the leader of Great Britain during World War ll was a big believer in napping. As they say in Mexico, it siesta time!
