Naps are glorious. I remember napping at kindergarten and have always thought we should work them back into our adult schedules. Here’s a good reason to start napping again. According to a new study out of Switzerland, taking naps is actually really good for your HEART.
The researchers found that people who took one or two naps a week had a lower risk of heart disease and strokes than people who never took naps.
Why? Well, since basically none of us get enough sleep at night, naps are a good way to catch up a little bit, which is good for your heart. Plus they help reduce your stress, which has a similar effect.
