Napping is an interesting subject. What was once considered a necessary, routine, and even desirable part of our childhood became looked down upon, and even villified, as we got older. Allow me to expound a bit further:
I once had a friend (I’ll call her Laura) who’s boyfriend’s mom would scold her when she found out that Laura had taken a nap in the middle of the day. Um, that’s seriously dumb if you ask me. Listen, I know we should try our best to get enough sleep at night so as to eliminate the need for naps. But lezbehonest, LIFE HAPPENS!
And I’m not gonna apologize for it!
And I’m certainly not gonna feel guilty!
Sure, there are people who abuse this. I am certainly not suggesting that we stay up late every night doing who knows what, then consistently crash the next day. That’s not how our bodies work;
Circadian rhythm is a delicate balance.
But seriously, a nap when we need it is nothin’ to be ashamed of!
Now sleeping on the job? That’s not acceptable, of course. And sleeping ‘cuz you’re hung over?! NO WAY!
But still, with a few notable exceptions,
I proudly claim my right to take a nap.
And you darn well better not give me crap!
“Do what you want! When you want!”
Thanks, John. I will.
