what if we all took a nap when we are tired??

would that totally change the world? i submit to you that it w o u l d.

think about it. how many people out there are cranky and upset and mad ... all because "secretly" they are tired.....??

statistics report 82.3% of people

( ... ok ... i made that up .. it was the .3 that gave it away, huh... bummer .. :p )

some countries take a siesta (aka: nap) in the middle of the afternoon, literally closing stores so that people can rest during the hottest part of the day and also during the body's natural ebb during the day. this is around 2 - 4 pm.

and though i love sonic and will always be loyal to it, they do happy hour - ie caffeine break - during this time because they know people are going to be tired and will respond to this sleepiness with the "only" thing they can do to finish the work day - caffinate! { i must say that was brilliant strategizing on sonic's part }

anyway - back to my point - what if we all rested when we were tired??

i finished my work day yesterday at 3 with a child who screamed//cried through the whole session -- and not only was he tired ... I was tired!

and so i did it - i took a nap. and slept well. and then got up and did a few things and went to sleep for the night. do i think i'm lazy or awful for not pushing through and doing all of the many endless things i can think up that i should be doing? absolutely. not.

i was tired.

so i slept.

and then i was more able to do what needed to be done.


*rest well ~ be well ~ alliswell*
