Happy Nappers: Naptime isn’t Just for Kids

Stressed? Try a power nap with a Happy Napper!

Stressed? Try a power nap with a Happy Napper!

Isn’t it time we started taking a cue from our kids? They seem to have the right idea when it comes to a lot of things. They think life is simple, they say what they mean, and they enjoy napping. Napping, of course, is better with Happy Nappers—the adorable little stuffed animals that change into comfy, cozy pillows. Kids can just shut it all off in the middle of the day, cozy up with their Happy Nappers Dog or Happy Nappers Penguin, and take a nap. It seems like the older we get, the less seriously we take this whole napping thing.

Have you thought about taking a good 15-45 minute power nap? (Anything longer than that puts you into REM sleep and sort of defeats the purpose.)

Here are some napping benefits:

  • You can sharpen your senses. After a long day full of work, school, kids, and chores, you’re sure to feel drowsy. This can make you prone to car accidents, injuries, and stress. If you feel down during the day, try a 10-20 minute power nap. It could help you feel more alert.
  • Napping is a big stress reducer. Have you ever seen a chronically stressed out kid? Napping is a good way to rest your mind and body from all the different things around you.
  • A nap also adds to your total sleep time, too. It makes it easier to get that 7-8 hours you need per night.
  • Napping can actually help you learn better. (Maybe that’s why kids pick up on things so quickly!) When you can shut your brain off for 10-15 minutes, it can help you feel refreshed and ready to learn. If your mind is constantly going, it will get tired—just like the rest of your body.

Take a cue from the kids. You may not need a Happy Nappers Cow to snuggle up with, but a power nap can really do wonders.
