As if I needed one more reason to nap more. . .gotta love those British research projects! (“Sleep more and save the environment”)
My father was definitely a workaholic, but being European by upbringing, he always came home in the middle of his 12-14 hour workday for a two hour lunch and nap break. I am proud to say that I have firmly embraced the napping tradition of my ancestors, but rejected my father’s workaholic tendencies. There is something so wonderful and decadent about taking a leisurely pause in the afternoon. It is one of my acts of resistance against a culture that demands we work endless hours to be productive. I find a good nap can do wonders for my creative process as well as my body.
Do you enjoy a good nap in the afternoon?
