Nation Napping Day Protect-A-Bed Giveaway
You can call it what you want, a nap, a siesta, a little snooze, a cat nap, or a nip nap. I love to take naps. Now that I am a mom I don’t take nearly as many naps as I used to. During my son’s daily naps I am usually doing some kind of work or watching something that includes a judge and not cartoon characters. It is a time for me to get things done. I try and occasionally take a little nap but it usually ends up not going as planned.
Today March 15, 2010 is National Napping Day. I don’t think they could pick a better day for this. It’s the first day after Daylight Savings started and we all lost an hour. Our internal clocks were messed with and we are all feeling it. I am definitely going to cuddle up with my son today and take a nap or take one myself during naptime. Everyone should take a nap every now and then. It is refreshing and it can be a mood lifter.
Protect-A-Bed offers consumers a complete line of protective bedding products to create a Healthy Sleep Zone. The unique technology featured in Protect-A-Bed’s mattress and pillow protectors was developed in South Africa in 1980 before the company was officially established in the United States in 2000. Now selling in 27 countries, Protect-A-Bed is a worldwide leader in mattress protection innovation. The company developed the proprietary Miracle Membrane and patented Bug Lock and Secure Seal, which help create a dry, bed bug free, anti-allergy sleep zone for people of all ages.
However, those who nap the best understand a sleeping place needs protection from allergens and dust mites. After all, waking from a nap with the sniffles is no way to wake up at all.
Research shows 10 percent of the general public and as many as 90 percent of people with allergic asthma (depending on the study you read) have an allergy to dust mites. And, dust mites love spoiling our napping refuge, taking up residence in mattresses and pillows. In fact, as many as two million dust mites can thrive in an unprotected mattress.
Besides dust mites, it’s not unusual for other allergy triggers like pollen and pet dander to become trapped within mattresses. By using a mattress protector, allergy sufferers can create an impermeable barrier between themselves and the allergens within their bed. By coupling mattress protection with pillow protectors that seal allergens within pillows, people can create a virtually allergy-free nap space.
On Monday only, Protect-A-Bed will be hosting a Twitter contest where they will be giving away sets of Premium Pillow Protectors to those who share the funniest place they’ve ever taken a nap. To enter, follow @Protect_A_Bed on Twitter and use the hashtag #nappingday to share your funniest or strangest nap location.
So today, harness the creative power that comes from napping, and embrace your inner Da Vinci. And remember, the art of napping needs a canvas, and that canvas comes from Protect-A-Bed.
