Napping is no laughing matter – unless it’s on YouTube…
Around here sleep is no laughing matter. We think – and experts agree – a good night’s sleep is the key to living a healthy, vibrant life. Without enough sleep, it’s hard for your body to function effectively, whether at home or at work. Fact is, if you’re getting less than 7-8 hours of snooze time each night, you might have trouble completing tasks, keeping an even temper, making decisions, remembering things, or even staying awake when you need to.
And you may be putting your future health at risk as well – long-term health is equally dependent on diet, exercise AND sleep.
But what can you do if you’re not getting enough sleep at night? Take a nap, of course! Now that we’re grown-ups, we’re ready to listen to Mom and lay our heads down for some mid-day zzzs. Power naps – done right – can be surprisingly restorative. Some sleep gurus even recommend a nap during the work day for an instant refresh and boost in productivity.
From scientific research, we know that sleep and napping are no laughing matter. But that doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun with the topic. Luckily for us, cell phone cameras have caught some of the funniest sleepy time moments on video. Here are 7 of what we think are the silliest and cutest clips on the Internet.
Are you ready to laugh yourselves to sleep?
Fake it till you make it, right?
