Take A Nap - Its Healthy
Research shows that naps reduced the risk of coronary mortality by 1/3rd. ~24,000 Greeks were studied for 6+ years - none had cardiovascular disease at the study's start. Those taking at least 3 midday naps/week of at least 1/2 hour each had 37% lower risk of coronary-related death. The effect was more among working men, retirees got less of a benefit.
So next time your boss finds you sleeping at work, tell him you're taking care of your health.
