Things you should know about napping

Thirty-four percent of us have napped in the last 24 hours.

A survey of 1,488 adults revealed that, men are more likely to nap than women. Napping for just 10 minutes can enhance your alertness, mood, and mental performance.

Here are Mike’s top five things you should know about napping.

#5. If it’s under an hour it’s a nap, over an hour it’s sleep.
#4. If you awake from one of your “naps” and you’re no longer employed – maybe it wasn’t technically a “nap” – more a “passing out”.
#3. Your pants must remain on the entire time (particularly important if you’re napping at work).
#2. “Nodding off in the council chamber” is NOT to be used as a euphemism for anything other than sleeping during city council meetings.
#1. If you wake up from your nap with one of the kids screaming “watch out dad!!” – it could be time to pull over to the side of the road.

Juliette says, “over the last two years I have grown as a community member, a radio host and have also grown a seventh toe”. – 1013TheRiver.com

For reals:
