You’ll Lose If You Don’t Snooze On National Napping Day (Apr. 4)

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If you’re going to sleep on the job, today (Apr. 4) is the day to do it.

That’s because it’s “National Napping Day,” and Americans are encouraged to make up the lost hour of sleep from the switch to Daylight Saving Time by snoozing for 60 minutes at work.

The nap-a-thon is the brainchild of Dr. William Anthony, a professor of psychiatric rehabilitation. His motto is “Turn your clock ahead at 2 a.m. and turn your sheets down at 2 p.m.”

If you’re having trouble getting 40 winks at work, Dr. Anthony suggests bringing a favorite blankie to work or slipping into some workout clothes before lying down on the job – and set an alarm if you’re afraid you’ll sleep too long.

People all over America will be snoozing it up today but New Yorkers are the folks who will most benefit from “National Napping Day” because the Four Points By Sheraton hotel will be setting up a special “napitat” so people in the Big Apple will have a comfy spot for an afternoon shut-eye.
