This Week On Being Latino: Why The Siesta Is Awesome

Being Latino, the largest Latino community on Facebook, is a communication platform designed to educate and connect all peoples across the global Latino spectrum. They also have a fascinating online magazine. Every week, we’ll be featuring a story we feel you should read.

You know what’s awesome? Naps. We love them. We take them all the time. In fact, we wish we were taking right now instead of writing this. We’re not the only ones who think that naps are the bees knees, however. Being Latino blogger Eric Jude Cortes is with us on this one. In fact, he argues that naps are not only awesome, but good for you as well. An excerpt from his post:

“One might make the argument that taking time off for a siesta might hurt businesses, but much evidence proves otherwise. Institutions no less reputable than NASA and Harvard University have conducted studies that proven that power naps (a trendier term for siestas) actually increase productivity. Studies have also pointed to the myriad of medical benefits of taking a siesta, including lowering high blood pressurereducing the risk of heart disease and improving people’s mood.”
