Naps Good For Your Heart Lazy Heart Too

by Mr. Lazy

big red heartWe know now that napping helps improve memory, keeps children from getting fat, and that daydreaming can help your creativity. According to Real Age being lazy and taking a nap can also lower the amount of calcium deposits in your arteries.

In fact, getting an ideal amount of sleep could help keep plaques from forming in your coronary arteries. And that means less risk of heart disease and heart attacks.

While I don’t think taking naps is a sign of laziness since you’re brain works almost as hard when you’re asleep as when you’re awake, make sure you’re getting the most out of those small breaks. A good amount of sleep is good for you heart in other ways too since getting the right amount makes your husband or wife less annoying.
