A Nap Would Be Really Good Right About Now

Bald Rock Mountain Lincolnville Maine

Is it bedtime yet? Also, what day of the week is it because I swear it feels like it should be Thursday by now. I really don’t wanna sound whiny, but why does daylight saving time have to kick me in the butt so hard? I didn’t get enough sleep last night, but I started my day with a large cup of coffee, I ate a good breakfast, took my vitamins, and went for a 4-mile run. THEN I drank a yummy smoothie, took a couple more vitamins, showered, and voted. Did you vote? I hope so.

I Need More Naps in my Life

Here’s where I’m thinking I went wrong today. I didn’t take a nap. I certainly could have taken a nap, but I’m always so torn when lay down for a short snooze. While I’m a huge advocate for naps and the health benefits they offer (no, really), I sometimes feel super lazy when I take one. The guilt certainly doesn’t last too long and I don’t feel that way every time I take a nap, but it sometimes prevents me from dragging myself upstairs to climb into my comfy bed and give my pillow a nice tight hug. The other problem with a nap in the middle of the day is that it’s super hard to turn my brain off, which is funny because I don’t have that problem when I go to bed at night. One thing’s for sure, though, and that’s that I almost always feel better and energized after a nap. It doesn’t have to be a long nap, either. I’m talking an hour of solid rest that mostly includes sleeping and I’m usually pretty good to go for the rest of the day.

Do you take naps on a regular basis? Do you ever feel guilty about it when you do? If so, please stop feeling that way and enjoy every single minute you get of bonding time with your pillow because naps aren’t just for babies and toddlers anymore.

  1. I totally agree with the idea of naps! Apparently we’re meant to get 7 to 9 hours of sleep a night to stay healthy and happy. I try to get 9 in if I can (as my weakened immune system means I need more kip than others!) When that’s not possible, I try and squeeze in even a 15 minute nap during the day, or I do some meditation instead. Both work wonders and clearing my head and helping me face the rest of the day with a smile! 🙂

  3. Taking a nap is very healthy! Naps are not only beneficial because they make us feel less sleepy and more alert, but because they improve our cognitive functioning, reaction times, short-term memory and even our mood.

  6. Hello, I have learned never to use tape. It adds like 16 extra unnecessary hours to a job. Also guilty of not painting the ceilings and completely regretting it later. Lazy. Do you mind if I put a link to this post on my blog.custom paint by numbers

  11. I’m so jealous that’s all your food allergies are! I actually have seven total (can you believe that luck) and I didn’t travel for a LONG time because I was honestly terrified of what could happen…but it’s really down to planning your food well during a trip and making sure to inform the server every single time – good luck on your next trip, hope it’s for something fun!free streaming gospel music

  15. We like to drive the boat to deserted beaches and enjoy picnics and playing in the sand. The cold water scares most boaters away (and the lake is surrounded by national forest, so no houses directly on the lake), so often we are the only ones out there! There are some warmer reservoirs in southern Colorado that are better for swimming and not quite.

  18. This works for me as a person with a reasonably uncluttered inbox – I get less than 50 emails a day. If I have an email I need to take care of but can’t/won’t do it right now, I make sure to keep it unread and I can’t mark it as read until I’ve actually finished that task. The way my inbox is organized, my unread emails are always on top. So that way it’s really hard to forget about something or let it get lost in your inbox, since it’s always there waiting for you to take care of it! pegasus bilet sorgula

However if you know how to sleep properly, you will learn and remember more; Obtain powerful aids for controlling your weight; Go a long way towards preventing disease and stopping the destruction caused by diabetes, heart disease, stroke and cancer; Think better and in a creative way and you will be able to infuse flow into your life, while balancing activity and rest.
