Taking an afternoon nap may feel good- but did you know that it may also be good for you?

Taking regular afternoon naps may reduce the risk of heart disease, specially for men.The risk of dying of heart disease was 37 percent lower for those who napped 30 minutes or more at least three times a week and 12 percent lower for those who took occasional naps when compared with people who never nap.

Naps may help relieve stress, which is the risk factor for heart disease. Naps may also give you an energizing boost helping you feel more awake and alert.

if you do nap, aim for a late-morning or mid afternoon nap.If it's any later, you might find it difficult to fall asleep at night
