simple pleasure of the week: napping

A lazy Sunday with a 20 minute nap thrown in is what I call a day well spent. There is something about a perfectly timed nap that leaves me feeling well rested and energized. Plus, waking up with the sun still shining feels so good. Pair it with a hammock to lay in and I'm as happy as can be. There are times however where I feel almost guilty taking a nap, thinking I should be more productive or enjoying my day fully awake. What I came to find recently is that research shows napping really can be beneficial for your health. It can boost creativity, help with memory and relaxation, and can lower blood pressure. No more guilt for me! Check out the infographic below to find out how to take the perfect nap.
