Working a 9-5 day, being in schoo forml 8:00 til 3:00, or just running errands can really affect a person and their body.

People who are always on the go with no rest soon becomes exhausted and drowsy. Many argue that naps are a time waster but Michael Hyott once said, “People who nap are not lazy. They might be the smartest, most productive people you know.” There are many benefits to taking daily naps.

Taking naps daily keeps people more alert. A short nap can help restore focus and bring back the energy. Naps also help reduce stress and frustration. For students involved in extra curricular activities, while trying to manage homework and relationships are piling on stress.

Taking a nap, far from being a time waster, is actually an energy saver that will help busy students be more productive in the second half of their day.  Naps allow students to focus on homework and practice to the best of their ability.

Naps make people more productive and help restore energy when it starts to fade. Quick naps can also be a great mood booster for those tough week days. Another benefit to naps is that it helps reduce the risk of heart disease. Working people with few resting hours have a 67% greater chance of dying from heart disease.

By taking a 30 minute nap, you will wake up refreshed and with a boost of energy. With an hour nap, your short term memory and creativity improves. With all these benefits, why not nap? Naps are essential for any age and for the health of your own body.
