Hey there nap enthusiasts! Did you know that February 28th is not just any ordinary day? It’s National Sleep Where You Are Day. This quirky holiday invites everyone to indulge in a mid-day snooze right in the heart of wherever you may be. Whether it’s on a blanket at the beach, under a shady tree in the park, or even on a crowded bus or train, it’s all about embracing the power of the nap.
