Soft sheets, a fluffy pillow and a quiet room. Those are the ingredients for a good nap. Oh, and a mind that will shut down and let my body drift off into slumberland. Sometimes these factors combine perfectly and I get some much-needed shut eye .
I’ve become a big fan of the naps especially after I come back from a trip.
I never used to nap. In fact, when I worked nights and had to sleep during the day, I was never a fan. I felt (and still do to a certain degree) that I’m wasting the sunshine hours, which are the best, of the day. I feel like I’m ducking out of life.
But I need the sleep. My body needs to rest and slumber is the best way to do it. So I’ve lovingly adopted the nap, with its soft blankies and cool pillows as my necessary friend.
