Seriously, today is National Napping Day!  In my book that's better than a birthday! I've been told I have valued sleep more than most since the day I was born.  Although I don't get a daily nap myself, I've tried my best to instill in the kids the importance of a rest time.  Many ask how it is that I still have all three kids napping on the same schedule every afternoon.  Ah, it's magical!
And today, in honor of the holiday, I happily joined them!

Protect-A-Bed® supports the art of napping on National Napping Day. According to their site:

Napping is an art – an art studies show bolsters health and creativity. History has produced a legion of great nappers. Among them are Leonardo DaVinci, Thomas Edison and Lord Byron, who after sweet slumbers achieved great feats of art, science and literature.

Is this a coincidence – this combination of greatness and napping? On this Napping Day, we at Protect-A-Bed think not. Napping Day is the first Monday after daylight saving time begins. It’s the day when the majority of us, a bit weary from losing an hour of sleep, desperately long for a short siesta. And, we here at Protect-A-Bed believe you should cave to that longing.


Studies abound tout the benefits of napping, from enhancing memory and learning, to improving work performance, and increasing mental acuity and overall health. That’s why on the first Monday after daylight saving time begins, it’s fitting to celebrate the benefits of the nap and those who take them.

Protect-A-Bed offers protective bedding products to create a Healthy Sleep Zone. The unique technology featured in Protect-A-Bed’s mattress and pillow protectors was developed in South Africa and is now a worldwide leader in mattress protection innovation. The company developed the proprietary Miracle Membrane® and patented Bug Lock® and Secure Seal®, which help create a dry, bed bug free, anti-allergy sleep zone for people of all ages.

I am pleased to be hosting a giveaway, in honor of National Napping Day, for one lucky reader to win a Queen Size Protect-A-Bed Premium Mattress Protector. See rules below to enter today.

  3. Okay, is this a trick question? Nope, don't nap unless I'm sick. I use to nap on the train coming home from work, but I don't work there anymore. Car/train whatever rides put me to sleep sometimes.

  36. the last time I had a nap was several months ago... i was on a red-eye flight from east to west coast and it was so uncomfortable that I hardly slept the whole time and when I got home I crashed for a few hours.

    While I am not a napper (just to high-strung to settle down during the day, I guess!!!), I really like protection from dust mites and allergens, too!!

  51. I actually got one in today! My husband had to go to the airport this morning at 6 am. I had to take him. We have a 20 month old and a 8 week old that I had to take with us. As you can imagine, I don't get much sleep at night. Today, I got them both to take a nap at the same time! I pretty much ran to the bed and feel asleep as soon as I hit the pillow.
