March 13 is National Napping Day!

Services for Real Estate Pros with Marte Cliff Copywriting

There's a holiday I can get behind, since I consider a mid-day nap the ultimate in luxury.

National Napping Day was created in 1999 as a way to raise awareness of the the pups are expert nappersimportance of sleep - and to help people recover from that lost hour when Daylight Savings Time begins. Studies have shown that this day of the year is when people feel most tired and sleep deprived.

How many of us will take advantage of it?

As for our pups - they're experts who could teach us a lot about just relaxing and taking a nap!

Endre Barath, Jr. Yes, I think you should get credit. Seems to me if they were going to make a National Napping Day it should have included a 3 hour lunch break for everyone!

Good morning Marte. No adverse effects of losing an hour on Sunday morning. Then again, maybe it will come later. Need been a big fan of afternoon naps but never needed a lot of sleep either. Now, in retirement I do sleep a little more. Enjoy your day.

Hello Marte - I see this as another day some may sleep through.  Now, I wonder would that be a surprise of sorts or carefully planned?

Michael Jacobs I guess some do sleep through every day, in a manner of speaking.

How interesting that there is a napping day! I've never been able to do that (nap) except for a day or two way back when I was pregnant and exhausted. Otherwise, I just cannot turn off my brain.

Kat Palmiotti We have an old couch that I swear is infused with a sleeping potion. Stretching out there is a sure way to a nap for everyone in my family.

Good morning, Marte... I needed (and took) a nap yesterday with the change to DST and have every expectation of needing one  (and taking one) today.

Good morning Marte,

At this point in time I do not take naps but I agree with you if they are going to have National Napping Day it should include a 3 hour lunch break for everyone! LOL!

Hi Marte- I’m not one to nap but Larry is. I sometimes take a short 10 minute nap while we’re watching television at night.

Kathy Streib The television can put me to sleep faster than anything - as long as there's no "shoot 'em up" with loud noises.

I definitely don't take as many naps as I should, so being that it is national napping day, that is a good excuse for me to take one today, haha.

Brian England You might as well take advantage of any opportunity (excuse) that comes along.

Marti, it doesn't happen often, but there are days that a nap is needed, and sometimes it is Sunday afternoon!

Joan Cox It's only fitting, since Sunday is supposed to be a day of rest.
