Catnapping Can Make You a Winner

March 12, 2012

Did you have trouble waking up on Monday, the first work day after the loss of one hour of sleep because of daylight savings time?

I did. I even took a nap. Turns out, I picked the right day to do it: Monday was National Napping Day.

Your catnap could win you a great prize.

And that nap can potentially win me and the bed in my Chicago real estate a prize.

Wheeling-based Protect-A-Bed® and Mattress Firm® on Monday launched the Catnap Chronicles Sweepstakes, in which nappers can visit Facebook to share details about what qualities make the best naps, including the best location to nap, the benefits of a good nap and the right amount of time to feel rested.

From March 12 through March 30, those who enter the sweepstakes will be registered for a chance to win the grand prize of a new Tempur-Pedic® mattress set from Mattress Firm and bedding protection products from Protect-A-Bed. Three runner-up winners will also win bedding protection from Protect-A-Bed.

All winners will be announced on Facebook on April 6. They’ll be randomly selected, so you don’t even have to try that hard.

“Year after year, scientific studies show us that lack of sleep leads to accidents, increased anxiety and other health risks which can be avoided with proper sleep patterns,” said James Bell, CEO of Protect-A-Bed. “After the loss of an hour of precious sleep, we encourage everyone to try to fit in a short, healthy nap.”
