Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Public Sleeping Day

National Public Sleeping Day is a day to grab a blanket and take a nap wherever your heart desires. An ideal way to celebrate this holiday would be to gather your friends and head to the park or library for a nap party.

Know your nap

There are different types of naps.

The Power Nap is approximately 10 to 20 minutes long and can give a boost of energy to get us through the rest of the day. It also doesn’t leave us drowsy like some longer naps might and will also allow us to fall asleep at a decent time at night.

The Hangover is about 30 minutes long, 10 too many, leaving us loopy and wanting to just stay asleep. We will snap out of it and feel much like we had a Power Nap, but it may take a bit of effort before we feel those benefits.

The Brainiac lasts about 60 minutes and includes the deepest sleep. While we may feel a little grogginess upon waking, much like the Hangover, our ability to recall facts, names and faces will be improved. This type of nap may be the best nap after a round of studying or prior to a big test.

The California King lasts about 90 minutes and is typically a full cycle of sleep. It will also include REM or a dream stage. This nap avoids the hangover like the power nap does and improves creative thinking and motor memory, but nighttime sleep may become elusive.
