Napping during the day: the best or the worst?
According to researchers from the University Hospital of Lausanne, daytime naps can lower your risk for heart attacks and strokes. CNN's Amy Woodyatt reports:
"Subjects who nap once or twice per week have a lower risk of incident CVD (cardiovascular disease) events, while no association was found for more frequent napping or napping duration," the report authors said.
And who is surprised? There's nothing better than taking a nap while the sun is still high in the sky. Whether you just need twenty minutes or two hours, a daytime nap will transform your day. You wake up refreshed and ready to tackle whatever the afternoon throws at you. Sweet dreams!
Others say sleeping during the day just feels wrong. There is nothing—nothing—worse than falling asleep during the day and waking up after the sun has gone down. Daytime naps are disorienting. They don't alleviate stress; they create it.
