Wordless Wednesday – Do You Nap?


Welcome To Wordless Wednesday At Create With Joy!

Do You Nap?

Did you know that most mammals – more than 85% of all species – sleep for short periods throughout the day?

It’s a well-known fact that cats are included among the ranks of polyphasic sleepers. As a matter of fact, cats are known for spending up to two-thirds of their day in sleep!

But here’s something that you might not be aware of. Did you know that a short nap – even as little as 20 or 30 minutes during the day – can help you to become more alert, improve your mood, and increase your performance capabilities?


All of the coolest cats in history – and even a few accomplished humans like Albert Einstein, Winston Churchill, and John F. Kennedy – managed to fit naps into their busy schedules.

Take a cue from Magnificent Magellan: naps are everything they are cracked up to be (and then some!)

    Wish, I could learn it from my cat!
    Greetings and meow from Germany

    I like napping but not if it interferes with my coffee.

  3. Maggie says:

    Out of the four of us, only the two cats are expert nappers. I always thought they were extremely intelligent!

    Well said and illustrated! I love a nap and take one almost every day, but that’s because I’m also an early riser and run out of steam halfway. 😉 Have a blessed week!

    Aww…feeling sleepy right now! : )

    Magellan is such a beauty! I’m not a very good napper, but I know some excellent ones!

  7. Ellen Pilch says:

    I love to nap- with my kitties 🙂

  8. meowmeowmans says:

    Oh, I LOVE taking naps, and wish I could do so every day. Maybe I’m a cat in a human’s body. 🙂

  9. interesting facts.
    I wish I were better at napping!

    You bet your sweet bootie I do. Whenever I feel like I’m fallin’ asleep by the computer I know it’s time to go lay down. I put my alarm clock on my cell phone to wake me in an hour and it’s naptime for ol’ dolly that’s for sure. Woo hoo!!!! Have a great week!!!

  11. Summer says:

    My human often naps in the late afternoon – I think she is learning from me! Either that, or she does not get enough sleep at night.

  12. I think we give a good example to our peeps, Megallan, don’t you think? Granny never naps, she tried it a few times, when she was very tired, but after it she was to tired to do anything at all. Pawkisses for a Happy Day 🙂 <3

  13. Mother of 3 says:

    I pretty much only nap when I’m sick or when one of my kids has been sick and kept me up at night. Naps make me more tired instead of feeling refreshed and then I never want to get back up.

  14. Debbie Williams says:

    Love naps but seldom get to take them.

  15. Great knowledge. I love naps-when I can take them. Cats are pretty smart.

    I so wish I could take a long nap every afternoon, not really in my schedule.
    Have a great day!!

  17. Cathy Armato says:

    Napping is the best! My favorite nap times are in the middle of a rainy day, or late afternoon on a warm, breezy day with the window open. *Yaaawn* ‘scuse me, a think I need a nap now! My dogs are expert nappers!

    Our mom naps during the day quite often. One or more of us always enjoys joining her. The bed is not crowded then like it is at night! XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  19. E says:

    I certainly nap, and my cat always naps with me 🙂 Thanks for hosting! Happy WW!

  20. Robin says:

    So cute! Cats have napping down to a science. 🙂 I could really use a nap. Perhaps I will talk a kitty into cuddling with me.

  21. I would love to take naps everyday but work kind of gets in the way of that plan!

  22. I definitely do some of my best work whilst napping, and if an extra 20 minute nap will improve that, I’m up for it! Lovely selfie this week too. purrs ERin

  23. Oh we would nap allll day if we could, human and kitty alike!

    I support napping. 🙂 I work from home so can usually snag one at some point. Naps rule!
