However, an academic not linked to the study have stressed that the figures show the majority of people will see no adverse affects from napping.

Of course that academic was not linked to the study. It wouldn't be as alarming with that common sense statement.

Why do science and the media point out the dangers of doing something that your body knows is good and right, i.e. resting it adequately?

Maybe because we are so out of touch with our bodies, we need to not trust ourselves, but listen to people who can contort data to say whatever they want it to say.

Take a nap, go for a walk, don't take things so seriously.

You'll be fine.

Naps are ambrosia to the soul. Occasionally, I'd take one on the weekend getting Alexa to play WQXR or WCRB (public classic radio stations) and get Alexa to start a 40-45 minute timer). Rare but sometimes I extend that another 30 minutes (after the original nap stage).

I'm a napper. Have been for thirty years.

I've acquired the serious hobby of napping since I moved to NYC in 2002.
