SEE- National Napping Day!


SEE Tip:  We've sprung forward thanks to Daylights Savings Time and perhaps you are feeling extra sleepy today.  Need a quick solution?  Try a 30 minute nap to commemorate National Napping Day!

You must sleep some time between lunch and dinner, and no half-way measures. Take off your clothes and get into bed. That's what I always do. Don't think you will be doing less work because you sleep during the day. That's a foolish notion held by people who have no imagination. You will be able to accomplish more. You get two days in one -- well, at least one and a half, I'm sure. When the war started, I had to sleep during the day because that was the only way I could cope with my responsibilities.

HKB Big Tobacco Update: A recent study from UCLA learned of some foul play hiding in Big Tobacco's files.  Through an exhaustive search, researchers discovered that Big Tobacco was aware of the cancer risks associated with smoking decades before they were shared with the public.  These major health risks were kept a secret from the general population and not properly addressed out of Big Tobacco's fear of losing potential life-long customers through nicotine addiction.  Was it savvy business sense or disregard for public safety?

Mellow Out Monday: National napping day may seem silly to some, but it's the perfect excuse to take care of yourself.  If you aren't able to take a nap, at least do something for yourself today.  Try reading a book for pleasure, catching up on a favorite TV show, or stopping by Q-level in the MSE Library for a FREE 5-7 minute back rub from a Stressbuster.  Pamper yourself today- you've earned it.
