Take a Nap

May 25, 2007

You don’t have to be a child to enjoy the benefits of a good nap. Adults, too, can benefit from naps. Allow the simple gift of sleep to heal your body and knit your soul back together. Latin Americans practice the wisdom of the siesta, and you can adapt this beneficial habit to your own life.

Taking a nap relaxes you. A few minutes of catnapping or an hour of sleeping in the afternoon is like an extra helping of healing and refreshment. Nurture body and soul with gentle nap therapy, and see if you don’t enjoy life a little more.

Last Saturday afternoon, I took a nap & it did wonders to yours truly who have not been sleeping well lately. If you are like me, you should give yourself the luxury of a long, leisurely nap this weekend. I am.

    It’s late and I’m feeling so tired
    Having trouble sleeping
    This constant compromise
    Between thinking and breathing

    Could it be I’m suffering
    Because I’ll never give in
    Won’t say that I’m falling in love
    Tell me I don’t see myself
    Couldn’t I blame something else
    Don’t say I’m falling in love

    Some kind of therapy
    Is all I need
    Please believe me
    Some instant remedy
    That can cure me completely

    Could it be I’m suffering
    Because I’ll never give in
    Won’t say that I’m falling in love
    Tell me I don’t see myself
    Couldn’t I blame something else
    Don’t say I’m falling in love

    Cause I’ve been there before
    It’s not enough
    So nobody say it
    Don’t even say it
    I got my eyes shut
    Whoah, no
    Whoah, no, no, no

    Could it be I’m suffering
    Because I’ll never give in
    Won’t say that I’m falling in love
    Tell me I don’t see myself
    Couldn’t I blame something else
    Don’t say I’m falling in love

    “Some kind of therapy
    Is all I need
    Please believe me
    Some instant remedy
    That can cure me completely”

    I like this verse, Suituapui.
    I need some kind of therapy or instant remedy that can help me sleep properly at night. 😉

  17. Napping makes me tired, so I go and have a lie down after my naps! 😉

    I took a nap and the boss caught me, what do I do now?
    He said, ‘You’re sleeping, aren’t you!’
    I said, ‘Not now!’ 🙂

    Hahaha… Thanks, Dabs. 🙂
