Everyday NhanSense: Each day, I will blog about something that comes to mind. My goal is to practice writing about my hobbies, my interests, my opinions and so forth.
Day 88’s Topic: Rest.
As a kid, I used to hate napping. I was the kind of child who would force himself to stay awake during the day. The thought of sleeping when it wasn’t bedtime was ludicrous to my young mind.
But lo and behold as I got older, I learned to appreciate the privilege (yes, it’s totally a privilege) to be able to doze off for 15 or so minutes. In fact, it’s quite the luxury when you can set aside the time to do so when you’re an adult.
Naps, after all, are very good for you. They may screw up your sleep schedule if you go overboard, but a few chances to catch some Z’s here and there does a lot of good for your overall well-being.
Over time, I have attempted to nap more when I feel the necessity.
But to be honest, I will in fact plop down on my bed and just sleep for a while when I really feel too tired to do anything. Curling up in the warmth and security of your own sheets … ah, just a slice of paradise if you ask me.
You don’t have to go anywhere or lift a finger. You can just tune out the world for a bit and let your body actually heal up a bit.
Life has been rough, life has been scary, but all of that doesn’t matter so much when I can just sleep and not think about that stuff.
So instead of overworking yourself, try taking a nap instead. You’d be surprise how much 15 minutes or more in the middle of the day can feel like the best thing in the entire world.
