You must sleep sometime between lunch and dinner, and no halfway measure. Take off your clothes and get into bed. That’s what I always do. Don’t think you will be doing less work, because you sleep during the day. That’s a foolish notion held by people who have no imagination. You will be able to accomplish more. You get two days in one – well, at least one and a half, I’m sure. When the war started, I had to sleep during the day because that was the only way I could cope with my responsibilities. — Winston Churchill
(Or you could always come take a restorative yoga class with me at It’s All Yoga and receive all the benefits of a nap – and more! – without actually falling asleep).
What’s your take on naps? Pro or anti? What are your napping best practices?
Naps are one of the best things ever in the entire world. I am very protective of my nap times on my weekends. I am very grateful that I work 4 10-hour days so I have three days on which I potentially get to nap. They. Are. Heavenly. I seriously wish they were required at work, too.
how long do you sleep? i used to be a confirmed 20 minute person, but now i let myself sleep as long as i can. it is glorious.
GO WINSTON CHURCHILL!!!
For real! Apparently Bill Clinton, Salvador Dali, JFK, Albert Einstein and Thomas Edison were all big nappers. At least according to Yoga In Bed, everyone’s trusted authority on such matters.
