Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce says nap time is the time when his body rests and recuperates to keep himself healthy at the end of a long season.

Kelce said today at a pre-Super Bowl press conference that he likes to take “cat naps” of 45 minutes to an hour, sometimes multiple times a day.

“The biggest thing is take naps,” Kelce said. “I’ve already taken one today and it’s not even noon.”

NFL teams are increasingly recognizing the importance of sleep in keeping their players healthy, with some teams consulting sleep scientists to help them determine their schedules to maximize how well-rested players are. Kelce sounds like he has his nap schedule down pat.

  1. Also helps if you avoid as much physical contact as possible.
    Not having to block has really helped Kelce’s longevity.

  2. I wish they’d convince my company to let me take a nap daily like this (and I’m not talking about lunch time). It would certainly help my mental fatigue. Ha.

    Oh god. The Kelces.

    They just love the attention.

    Well, this media week at the Super Bowl and reporters ask questions. Don’t worry – the Pats won’t be there for a while, so you don’t have to worry about it.
