Napping Twice a Week May Lower Your Risk of Heart Attack

By

Sleepy people of the world, rejoice! New research shows that taking daytime naps once or twice a week can actually lower your risk of heart attack and stroke. There are a few caveats, though. 

Apparently, the health benefits of napping have been "hotly contested" for some time, according to Science Daily. There have been several published studies before claiming that napping is good for your heart health, but many of those didn't take into account napping frequency or focused on the wrong things. This new study, from the journal Heart, was more comprehensive.
