Power Napping ~ Part II

If you, like me, need famous people to make you feel better about your love for napping…look no further than these three inspiring men who will make you want to take your clothes off and get into bed.  Wait, that came out wrong.  Alright, just read the quote people…

“You must sleep sometime between lunch and dinner, and no halfway measures. Take off your clothes and get into bed. That’s what I always do. Don’t think you will be doing less work because you sleep during the day. That’s a foolish notion held by people who have no imaginations. You will be able to accomplish more. You get two days in one — well, at least one and a half.”

Winston Churchill

Fact: The story goes that Albert Einstein liked to sleep 10 hours a night – unless he was working very hard on an idea; then it was 11. He claimed that his dreams helped him to invent!  Also he felt that naps “refreshed the mind” and that they helped him to be more creative.

Fact: Calvin Coolidge slept 8 hours a night, plus 2 or 3 hours in the afternoon. In fact, his very first act as president of the United States was to go to sleep. It is said that Calvin Coolidge got more sleep in the White House than any other president.
