n is for napping in a nook

napping day is an unofficial holiday that falls on the monday after daylight savings time begins in the united states. the day was created as a way to compensate for the hour people lose because of the time change. this is one holiday that most people can get behind.

studies have shown that one or more short naps during the day can help increase productivity and alertness. it is believed that many successful people in history napped often such as: einstein, churchill, and napoleon.

how to celebrate?

  • take a short nap.
  • if your country does not observe DST, then follow the DST and napping day schedule of another country. why lose out on a holiday just because your country doesn’t have DST?

did you know…

…that a NASA study among pilots and astronauts found that short naps can increase performance by 34% and alertness by 54%?

“the replenishing thing that comes with a nap

– you end up with two mornings in a day.”

the kinder nap diaries – so many styles, so little sleep.



the downward-facing up on the wall and on your head style

(includes the mysterious vanishing sheets technique)


the get inside of your sheets and try to camouflage yourself in them

while you creep across the floor and think no one will notice style


the fall asleep by accident in spite of yourself

and all of your best efforts to not to style,

while wrapped up in a sweaty and twisted cocoon

made of your own body and bedding.

“life is something to do when you can’t get to sleep.”

but in reality, i don’t think i’d fare very well.

as we walked in from recess

e muttered aloud:

why do we have to take naps?

why do we have to take them every day?

why do schools make kids take naps?

whey do we have to?

i hate naps.

i never fall asleep.

i do not like naps.

naps are dumb.
