You should definitely take an afternoon nap… (Doctors say so)

Whether it be a 40 winks before work or a heavy duty dreamy dreamy sleepy snooze after a marathon Netflix session – getting a bit of shut eye feels down right fantastic.

And if anyone calls you lazy for indulging in daytime dreaming, there’s now some medical research that you can shove in their face before getting back to knocking out the Zzzzzzs.

Unveiled at the European Society of Cardiology conference in London, the new data suggests naps are actually good for your health.

A short afternoon snooze can reduce the risk of high blood pressure and heart attacks.

Dr Manolis Kallistratos – a cardiologist at Asklepieion Voula General Hospital in Athens, where the study was conducted – said: ‘Although William Blake affirms that it’s better to think in the morning, act at noon, eat in the evening and sleep at night, noon sleep seems to have beneficial effects.’ Full story...
