I envy her for her relaxed view at life. I myself have loved napping since college, unfortunately I also think that’s the last time I had the opportunity to. Not that I don’t sleep when it’s not nighttime, I just don’t consider it to be napping. Being so tired you fall asleep watching a movie at 8 PM can’t count as a nap since you lose the carefree attitude associated with the entired concept of napping. By my definition a nap is intentional and done out of want and not need. My dog doesn’t sleep because she needs to, she sleeps because it feels good and she wants to.
A couple of Sunday’s ago I was sitting around with nothing to do and that’s when it hit me, I could take a nap! Just curl up and drift off for a little bit, giving myself some much needed rejuvenation and relaxation. So I settled into the couch (another rule), shut my eyes and drifted off. When I woke up I definitely felt more energetic and it was a nice reminder of how important it is to take a break every now and then.
Yes, I understand a blog post discussing how I took a nap might not be the most scintillating thing ever. Thanks for sticking with me, they all can’t be gems!
