siestas are awesome

MONDAY, Feb. 12 (HealthDay News) — A large study of Greek men and women suggests that taking a daily midday nap may reduce your risk of dying from heart disease by more than 30 percent. Siestas are common in Mediterranean countries and several Latin American nations, and in these countries, the rate of dying from heart disease is comparatively low. Earlier studies had looked at the association between midday naps and heart disease, but the results were inconsistent. The new study is the first large, prospective study of people who were healthy at the start of the study, and it’s also the first one to take into account risk factors, such as diet and exercise.
