Are you getting enough sleep?

Today is Napping Day, an unofficial holiday created in 1999 by now-retired Boston University professor William Anthony and his wife, Camille, to help people adjust to Daylight Savings Time.

How much do you need?

You need plenty of undisturbed sleep to rebuild your body/biology, refresh your mind, quiet your chaotic thoughts and emotional roller coaster from the day, and re-energize.
