I am a nap person. Some people are not.
But, it is undeniably one of the best things in my life. (seriously.)
They allow me to relax. They give me a chance to shut out the rest of the world (atleast for a few minutes).
Let's face it: Life is unpredictable. It is stressful. It is frustrating.
Naps can save you from ripping your hair out.
(It has saved me a few times)
They can give you a few minutes of "me" time.
(MUCH needed "me" time)
It can take you away from some stress.
(Please take me away!)
They are awesome for recovering from a
(I won't even disclose how many times I have done this).
It can be a great way to take a break from life.
(I mean c'mon, we are saving the world daily - we deserve a break!)
This is my perfection:
Some people ask me how I can waste my time with a nap.
Some ask how I fit a nap into my schedule.
First: I don't look at naps as a waste of time. They keep me balanced. They keep me fresh.
Who wants to have a crabby apple at dinner? [No-one.]
My way to overcome the bitch in me is to calm it with a nap.
Second: I made it a priority. If I am having an extremely frustrating day, I pencil in a 30 minute nap. Some people use Yoga to relax. Some people meditate. Some people go for a walk. Me? I take a nap.
I'm not advocating that everyone take an hour everyday to get some heavenly down time.
I am, however, advocating for you to take some time to wind-down.
The Hubby? He uses his guitar. After work, he will sit and play some tunes for a while.
My friend? She goes for a walk everday. 30-40 minutes of just good ole' increased circulation for a clearer mind.
Another Friend? She will lie down and listen to relaxing music.
All I'm sayin' is that I know some Mothers, some military spouses, some military members, some family members, and some friends that could just really afford to take a little break.
"Set aside half an hour everyday to do all your worrying, then take a nap during this time."
