20 Examples of Nap Inventions

From Inflatable Nap Hoodies to Convenient Sleep Stations

— February 29, 2016 — Lifestyle
As the saying goes, the body wants what the body can't have...but what if that extended to what the body needs? That is where these nap inventions come into play. While it might be argued that some people are simply lazy, another argument can be made for the long hours and overstimulation modern individuals are being subjected to. This results in a slew of nap inventions that help promote rest and rejuvenation in short, attainable bursts.

Whether that means an article of clothing tweaked to make spontaneous naps more comfortable or actual areas made for people to lay back and close your eyes, these nap inventions cover a lot of terrain. They also have the best intentions, ensuring health and sanity throughout the day.
