Naps Oh Wonderful Naps

I have never been a nap taker..... what a waste of time.  Even as a small child I hated taking a naps, just ask my mom. I was afraid I might miss something...something important! Well I've done a 180 on my nap thinking.

I know the body does most of it's healing when we are sleeping. We live in such a fast passed frenzy who has time to take a nap. We need to slow down... how can we enjoy the moment if it's passing by at lighting speed.

Yesterday I went to take a short nap. My short nap lasted 4 hours, I woke refreshed, and I don't think I missed a thing. Naps are helping me to slow down not to be in such a rush, to listen to what my body needs. Take the time to slow down whither it be a few moments of deep breathing, a power nap or a long lazy nap.  Lay down when your tired, get up when you naturally wake up, put the clock away... listen to your body, find its rhythm.

Only one down side Rick says I need a nap muffler.  Here's to naps and more of them.
