A 2007 study of about 24,000 Greek people showed that those who napped twice a week reduced their CHD by 12%. What was really amazing was that if they napped three times a week their CHD reduced by a whopping 37%. That alone would be enough for me to start catching some zzzs during the day. But there is more…
Statistics support that a nap can be the equivalent of a whole night’s sleep to improve learning during the day! “Learning from a nap is EQUAL to learning from a full night of sleep”.

Napping decreased the time to fall asleep at night by 14%
Napping increased the ability to stay asleep through the night by 12%
Napping increased nighttime sleep by about 20 minutes
Napping increased the refreshed feeling upon waking by 5%
