No one appreciates a good nap like a mom!
Whether it’s your kiddo’s taking a little snooze and giving you some much need quiet time or just stealing a few winks yourself, all mom’s agree that a nap can complete turn a bad day into a MUCH better day.
March 15th is National Napping Day! Why is it National Napping Day? Well, the answer is easy. National Napping Day falls the Monday after Daylight Savings begins. Need a better explanation? Ok, who among us, after a weekend in which we lose an hour of sleep, doesn’t feel a little groggy and behind come Monday? See! It makes perfect sense.
To celebrate the good folks at Protect-A-Bed, makers of premium mattress and pillow protectors, are holding a Twitter contest in which they will be giving away sets of their premium pillow protectors!
To enter simply follow @Protect_A_bed on Twitter and use the hashtag #nappingday to share the funniest place you have taken a nap!
If you don’t know if you need pillow or mattress protectors, let me just tell you what they can protect you against. Research shows 10 percent of the general public and as many as 90 percent of people with allergic asthma (depending on the study you read) have an allergy to dust mites. And, dust mites love spoiling our napping refuge, taking up residence in mattresses and pillows. In fact, as many as two million dust mites can thrive in an unprotected mattress. (EW!)
Besides dust mites, it’s not unusual for other allergy triggers like pollen and pet dander to become trapped within mattresses. By using a mattress protector, allergy sufferers can create an impermeable barrier between themselves and the allergens within their bed. By coupling mattress protection with pillow protectors that seal allergens within pillows, people can create a virtually allergy-free nap space.
Makes sense now doesn’t it?!?
Well, if it does you are really going to be excited now!
With a special thanks to Protect A Bed, for supplying me with my very own premium mattress protector, and Global Influence, for bringing me the campaign of National Nap Day, I have a premium queen mattress protector to give to one of you all!
