Today is…National Workplace Napping Day
National Workplace Napping Day was created by William Anthony, a former professor of rehabilitation counseling at the Sargent College of Boston University—and current (as of 2018) professor emeritus, and his wife Camille Anthony. Anthony called for the day in an April 1999 Boston University press release, and it was first celebrated on April 4, 1999. Originally celebrated on the first Sunday of daylight savings time, it was known as National Nap Day. Within a handful of years it shifted from being celebrated on the Sunday of daylight savings time to the Monday after it, being celebrated with mid-workday naps by organizations and individuals. With this shift it also began taking on the name of National Workplace Napping Day. When explaining why the day should be held after daylight savings time, Anthony said, “We figured this would be a good day to celebrate the importance of napping because everyone is one hour more sleep-deprived than usual.” He went on to say that most Americans are sleep deprived even before daylight savings time is factored in.
