Say it ain’t so!   Frequent or routine napping during the day has been linked with an elevated risk of developing high blood pressure and having a stroke, according to a new study published by the American Heart Association’s Hypertension journal report.

But wait!  It turns out, the naps themselves are not the root cause of the issue. Many people take naps because of poor sleep at night, and poor sleep is associated with poorer health. You’re going to want to rethink those late nights, and ESPECIALLY those all-nighters. Get those 8 hours in!
