ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Scott Beale of Laughing Squid says: "Boston.com has posted an excellent graphic on “How to Nap” in their “Ideas” section." Link
Best thing on Boing Boing in a long time!
I can’t wait for the rest of the series, especially ‘How to Eat’ and ‘How to Breathe’.
I wish the text of the graphic was of a little higher quality. Other than that… I think I’ll…. doze off… just a sec….
I’m sleepy just thinking about naps.
I think I’ll take a nice sun nap this very afternoon!
Latin America does it right with the siesta. The work-day / school-day in the rest of the world should be planned around napping.
I just woke up from a nap. What great timing! This justifies those 2 hours in which I didn’t get anything done in the waking world.
Oddly, I like it better (as a graphic) in the low res thumbnail above.
Falling asleep is the most pleasurable activity in my life. And napping is the second most pleasurable.
Note the newspaper on the male sleeper strategically draped over his lap. Spontaneous erections can be a bit of an issue when napping. That could be a whole new “how to for the gents” page I suppose.
I didn’t see Robert Goulet in the image.
This is awesome, a useful napping cheat-sheet that condenses some of the most practical bits of what I learned about sleep over 2 weeks (a decade ago) in psychology 101 at Cornell University, taught by sleep expert Dr. James Maas: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Maas
Totally off-topic but interesting to note: Dr. Maas’ son Dan is the genius behind some amazing 3D animations/visualizations done for recent NASA Mars missions, often seen in popular press. http://www.maasdigital.com/gallery.html
