Don't Knock Napping! Here's a Healthy Reason to Take a Nap!

Love your afternoon naps? Don't feel a bit bad about it! Why? That mid-day snooze may do even more good than you think! A study, presented at the European Society of Cardiology conference in London, found that naps may reduce blood pressure, which could prevent heart attacks. Middle-aged women and men who napped had lower blood pressure when awake and during sleep at night. 

We’d tell you more about this study, but it’s time for a nap... OK, you can read more about this study here!

Yes, I totally agree, I nap when baby naps, if possible!

I've never been much of a napper, Francielle Daly, but may reconsider now!

This is awesome! Now I can take naps guilt-free!

Unfortunately, even if you took the guilt out, I don't think I could nap. I always wake up feeling groggy. Maybe I'm not doing it right! lol Meredith Schneider
