The Nourishment of a Nap

Napping is a glorious luxury! It is priceless item that you can have for yourself at the low bargain basement cost of time.

The rare gem of napping is an item sought after by many especially during a busy work week.

Of course, It never happens!


I reach my breaking point usually by late Saturday afternoon when my eyes begin to go heavy and I mumble something incoherent to my husband.


“Ugh. Do I have to repeat myself, again?”

He sighs, “I think you need a nap.”

I never bother arguing that point with him because he is right.

In those glorious thirty minutes I shut the door, crawl under the duvet, close my eyes, and let the drool fall out of the corner ofΒ  my mouth.Β  The only person that dares to wake me is the dog. It will manage to pry its way into my room, hop on the bed, and sniff my nose to make sure I am still alive.

IΒ  arise from my deep slumber with a slobber on my face and ready to conquer the rest of the weekend. It is the perfect time-out to refuel my creative tank.

If you have not experienced the luxury of napping on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon you are missing out on a luxurious gift that you can give yourself which costs absolutely nothing!

  1. I was always a bad napper-due to my overactive brain. That has changed in recent years, and I’m now able to enjoy the quiet indulgence. Score 1 for being over thirty!

  2. Oh yes. Lead me to Paradise. The desire to nap and the opportunity to do so. One of life’s great free pleasures, chuck in a bit of pre-sleep daydreaming and thoughts of some glorious snack floating through the kitchinsphere and nothing could be nicer πŸ™‚

  3. I ‘discovered’ napping as an actually useful process in my 2nd year of university, when late nights and early mornings created this void of energy that only an afternoon nap could solve πŸ™‚

      1. I have to be careful though, if I nap on a day where a reasonable bed time is required, I can’t fall asleep in the evening, basically screwing up my whole sleep schedule!

  4. My favourite spot is the reclining sofa (one reclining part out of 4 still works). Grab a good book and read it S-L-O-W-L-Y until that bit of drowsiness comes on and then just give in for a little while. One of life’s pleasures.

  5. Yes! Hooray for naps! When my eldest nephew was a toddler, “nap” was a dirty word but if we asked, “Do you need a rest?” he was all over it. Now? Mr. Muse has told me on more than one occasion “You need a nap.”
