The Art of Napping

May 15, 2015

A telltale sign of adulthood? The constant pursuit of the right amount of sleep. When a good night’s worth isn’t possible (and even when it is), there’s nothing more enjoyable than reclaiming that childhood pastime, the nap. Catching a dreamy doze, however, requires the just-right blend of inspiration and preparation. But not to worry, we’ve rolled up our pajama sleeves and put our sleepyheads together to perfect the formula, which we share with you today.
