Take Power Napping to New Heights With These 15 Comfy Accessories.

Let’s face it: naps are some of the greatest things on earth, and are totally underrated. If you’re like most people, you put up a resistance to nap time in your earlier years. It wasn’t until later when the thought of curling up for a little while during the day began to grow on you. Seriously, why can’t we bring back some official nap time? We’d all be much more relaxed.  

For those of you who look to take your nap game to the next level, we can help. We’re also jealous of the fact that you have time to take naps and the rest of us don’t.

Check out these 15 nap accessories that will make you plop down wherever you are for a snooze. 

1.) Pizza Sleeping Bag

These pizza sleeping bags are made to order and come with optional topping pillows, so you can have the pizza of your dreams.

2.) Shark Sleeping Bag, a/k/a “Chumbuddy”

Nothing says relaxing like “shark attack,” right? Snuggle up with this creature of the deep for your next snooze. Who knew being chum was so comfortable?

3.) Heating/Cooling Pad

This mattress pad allows for both heating and cooling, so it can be used year-round.

4.) Bed Fan

This fan blows a quiet stream of air between the sheets, so you won’t get overheated when you sleep. It has a relatively small range, so it’s also good for couples with different temperature needs.

5.) Power Nap Plush

Since having the imprint of a keyboard on your face gives you away, this pillow is cleverly camouflaged as a binder. Okay, maybe not cleverly, but it’s a good pillow to keep on hand for when the need to nap strikes.

6.) Reclining Office Chair

Stuck at work? Not a problem with this chair. It fully reclines, so you can stretch out at your desk. An extendable footrest allows for leg support at all heights.

7.) Suit Pajamas

Combined with the reclining office chair and the binder pillow, these snappy pajamas will make you look like you’re getting work done, regardless of whether you’re conscious.

8.) Sleep Sound Lamb

Yeah, okay, we know this is marketed for infants, but they call it “sleeping like a baby” for a reason. This plush lamb offers a variety of soothing sounds to lull you, including a heartbeat, a gentle rain shower, the ocean, and whales.

9.) Sleep Mask with Music Input

Not only does it block out light, it also blocks out external sound. Plug it in to listen to relaxing music or sounds.

10.) Hug and Dream Minnie Mouse

I don’t care how manly you think you are, Minnie here will have you dozing in no time. It creates the sound of slow, even breathing, with the goal of slowing your breath, leading to a relaxing sleep.

11.) Shoulder Pillow

The design of this pillow allows you to nap while sitting up, and also allows for the full relaxation of the neck muscles to cut down on stiffness. It’s also perfect for travel.

12.) The Ostrich Pillow

If you can’t bring a pillow, wear one. The Ostrich Pillow allows you to put your head down on anything, anywhere, and even has built-in pockets for your hands. Confidence to wear this thing on your head in public is not included.

13.) The Better Sleep Pillow

No longer will you have to worry about what to do with your other arm! The channel in the bottom of this pillow allows for arm comfort like never before.

14.) Inflatable Car Mattress

Instead of squishing yourself onto the back seat during road trips, this mattress provides support and extends over the leg space, giving you more room to stretch out.

15.) Nap Suit

For those of you who have given up on looking like you can make it through a day without passing out, we present the nap suit. It’s stylish nature can only be improved upon by accessorizing with the Ostrich Pillow.

  I don’t know about you, but now that I’ve been up for over two hours, I really need to lie down. Oh, look! A binder…

This Father Took Photos Of All The Places His Little Boy Fell Asleep. And It’s Hilarious.

When reddit user Scevans09 posted a gallery of his son sleeping, I expected it to be boring. We’ve all seen kids sleeping. But I’m pretty sure you’ve never seen a kid fall asleep in this many awkward, crazy positions. His naps are basically an artform – and one I’m jealous of. I want to fall asleep literally anywhere.

Just like him:

Sitting up in a chair.

Laying awkwardly.

On the kitchen chairs.

In the car, thinking.

Under his brother.

Mostly on the bed.

In a Jean Claude Van Damme split.

In mid-lunch.

While playing.

On the wrong part of the couch.

On the other wrong part of the couch.

Still on the wrong part of the couch.

Getting his haircut.

Still playing.

While reading.

On hardwood floors.




While waiting on food.


This is just talent.

Nice arm position.

This is physically possible?

Stop showing off.

While tuning out his parents. It worked.


In the dirty clothes because why not?

Sitting up. He’s still got it.

While getting ready to play.




Okay, kid. You win at sleeping.

Before you jump to conclusions that this kid is narcoleptic or has some serious other issue, his dad said the following:

“He had problems sleeping at night for awhile and then finally got his tonsils and adenoids out and has slept so much better since. I think that is why he would just crash all the time during the day.”

So, he’s all better but thankfully we have 34 brilliant photos of his epic nap-taking abilities. Share them with others below.

5 Things You Didn’t Know About America’s Sleeping Habits

Urgh. Stop reading this and take a damn siesta.

Sleeping is really, really important.

It’s so important that the National Sleep Foundation (NSF) released this 2015 poll and this study by Dr. Charles A. Czeisler about America’s sleeping habits.

1. Sleeping is a HUGE problem in the United States. It’s so bad that roughly 30% of American workers sleep less than six hours a night, according to NSF.

Not getting enough sleep can lead to a whole bunch of problems. Here’s why: Sleeping keeps our brains healthy, according to Charles A. Czeisler’s report in the Journal of the National Sleep Foundation.

Without a proper night’s rest, you’ll eat more and your memory and cognitive functions will become impaired. And you’ll even have a higher chance of contracting some serious illnesses, like Alzheimer’s disease and even some cancers.

2. It’s even worse for people who work the night shift: Around 44% of American night-shift workers are sleep-deprived.

This is why the World Health Organization has labeled night-shift work as a possible carcinogen.

3. Approximately 7.5 million Americans fall asleep at the wheel each month.

Unfortunately, this leads to about 6,400 deaths per year, writes Czeisler. That’s a huge number, considering we talk much less about drowsy drivers than we do about drunk drivers. The numbers are not that different: Around 10,000 people die because of drunk drivers per year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

4. About 64% of Americans who experience chronic pain also suffer from sleep deprivation, according to the 2015 poll by NSF.

And we’re not talking about The Machinist-like crazy all-nighters. The participants were sleep-deprived by only about 40 minutes, which means they slept 6.7 hours instead of 7.3 hours. That may not seem like a lot of time, but it makes a huge difference.

In fact, Czeisler writes that after just one week of sleep deprivation, your body has a harder time resisting infection, you’ll become moody, and your glucose tolerance will decrease (which can lead to diabetes).

5. Healthy people sleep approximately 18–23 minutes longer than those who experience chronic pain.

Kristen Knutson, Sleep in America poll scholar, told BuzzFeed over email, though, “This poll could not address the direction of effect.” Knutson does mention, however, that getting 15–30 minutes more sleep per night could make a difference in how you feel.

Basically, this is how you feel after an all-nighter:
