I don't think you can ever put too much emphasis on naps. Naps are the best thing ever invented. Whoever came up with the idea of taking a rest in the middle of the day was a genius. I'm not sure how to get that organized into the work day, but I definitely appreciate them on days I have off.
And don't confuse a nap with a respite. A respite is a quick-hitter, maybe 15-20 minutes tops. A nap, on the other hand, is a commitment. It's an hour and sometimes more. When you are taking a nap, you are saying that the outside world is off limits for the equivalent of a half of a football game, potentially an entire movie, or an hour-long drama for sure.
But, what do you call those times when you can sleep for longer than a respite but not quite long enough for a nap? That's the situation I had today. I laid down for 45 minutes, and I wasn't quite sure what to call it. A resnap? A napite? What do you think?
Lesson learned: I enjoy the time when I can take a rest in my day.
I'm a lover of life, an eternal optimist, and I have an intense desire to add value through simple living and positive vibes.
