It's funny how something you fought against so vehemently as a child, you now cherish and enjoy as a guilty pleasure.

Well, shed that guilt trip. A new study out of Switzerland, says taking a nap is actually really good for your heart.

To tell, the truth, I don't think I could give up my naps even if they were bad for me.  But, really, how could they be bad. I'm not eating bad food, not smoking, not drinking and not spending any money. How could that be anything but healthy.

In fact, reseachers found that taking a nap or two in a week actually reduced your risk of stroke or heart disease. More so than people that didn't nap. Few of us manage to get enough shuteye at night , so a nap is just what the doctor ordered.

So, let's all bow or heads and doze off for awhile.
