Today is National Napping Day (no, I’m not making this up)! Celebrate the spirit of the first day back to work after an entire hour of sleep was ripped away from us over the weekend with a mid-day siesta.
There is not only proof that it helps increase productivity, but you’ll also be in good stead knowing that the BIG political movers and shakers of the world have been known to partake in a cat nap or two.
