Needless to say, it is indubitable that the current generation - that is to say, us - is the future of the world. Therefore, it is in humanity's best interests for us to be at our best selves and for our mental faculties to be operating at their zenithal magnitude.

    However, we have noticed an issue. Nay, a veritable tragedy, a travesty of justice. We are forced to gruel through the day, from waking up in the early hours of the morning - a violation of our humanitarian liberties in of itself - to having to toil through the night and day. 

    We cannot stand for this. We demand freedom to be alert. We demand freedom to be awake. We, in essence, demand freedom to live.

Upon researching the subject of our lack of sleep extensively, we have settled upon an answer: a shining beacon of hope and liberty, gleaming with righteous glory in a dark, churning sea of fatigue. A breath of hope, illuminating the possibilities of what we can be, of what we should be, of what it is our duty, our purpose, our wish to be: an afternoon nap.

There have been multiple studies on this matter:

  • More than 85% of mammalian species are polyphasic sleepers, meaning that they sleep for short periods throughout the day.” - National Sleep Foundation
  • “a short nap of 20-30 minutes can help improve mood, alertness and performance.” - National Sleep Foundation
  • “Winston Churchill, John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, Napoleon, Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison and George W. Bush are known to have valued an afternoon nap.” - National Sleep Foundation
  • “Naps can restore alertness, enhance performance, and reduce mistakes and accidents. A study at NASA on sleepy military pilots and astronauts found that a 40-minute nap improved performance by 34% and alertness 100%.” - National Sleep Foundation
  • “Scientists have shown that a 60- to 90-minute siesta can charge up the brain's batteries as much as eight hours tucked up in bed.” - The Telegraph (The findings come from psychologists at Harvard University, who tested the visual learning ability of volunteers.)
