There's a lot of love for napping, and a lot of science that supports it, but … it has a bit of a bad reputation, even though it's an important part of many cultures! So instead of celebrating them, they're a secret obsession for many work-from-homers or corporate (under-desk) nappers. But naps don't have to be stigmatized any longer! Slow Down, Take a Nap will reclaim the siesta as self-care, in a funny, quirky, and sweetly illustrated way.
Packed with content ranging from the serious and data-driven to the hilarious and entertaining, Slow Down, Take a Nap includes quotes ("Think what a better world it would be if we all, the whole world, had cookies and milk about three o'clock every afternoon and then lay down on our blankets for a nap. —Barbara Jordan"), definitions (What is sleep inertia anyway?), fun facts, flow charts, illustrated scenes, profiles of great nappers in history, and more.
