Not that you should need an excuse to take a nap, but just in case you feel guilty about it, you won't be the only one checking out for an hour or two today.

Being on an early morning schedule for whatever your job is can be tiring, especially around 4 p.m. Honestly, I wish I could take naps, but I just don't have time to. Being up at 4 a.m. has its good points, though; I feel like I have a head start on my day that nobody else in my house has. And I love being done with my workday before most everyone else I know.

I don't think there is a better day to declare #nationalnappingday than today, the day after daylight savings when we lose an hour of sleep. Everyone knows that a nap can improve your mood, energy level and creativity. So don't feel guilty, go to sleep. 😴
