DALLAS (KDAF) — While it’s only March, we know that you’ve been hard at work so far this year and you deserve to add some more naps into your life. You’ll be surprised at just how much better you may feel once you take the time to get some extra shut-eye.

Monday, March 13 is National Napping Day! Don’t let your boss give you too much to do today and take some extra time during your break to get some extra sleep, especially since we lost an hour over the weekend.

NationalToday said, “Ever feel jet-lagged after daylight savings? March 13 is National Napping Day and it’s the perfect day to help you recuperate from the “spring forward.” Don’t doze off as I tell you this, I promise this won’t be a snooze fest!

“Napping is actually scientifically proven to be better for you than coffee or energy drinks. So now you can feel less guilty about enjoying this not so guilty pleasure. You may have lost that extra hour in the day but you can feel like you caught up on some sleep by celebrating the day in style.”
