Naps are good for you, experts agree. They refresh the body and the mind, stimulate creativity and promote general well-being.

Thomas Edison didn’t sleep except for about three hours every night. What he did was take frequent naps. Look how that worked out for him.

Unluckily for me, I could never take naps. When I try, I wake up feeling all groggy; fragmented, like a broken toy; disoriented and in a lousy mood. Overall, in more than 40 years as a relative adult, I have taken four successful naps.
