Naps = Awesomeness


I love naps. Not only do they help me feel better, but they also make me feel indulgent because not everyone is lucky enough to be able to nap during the day. As a writer, I think napping is important because it allows my subconscious mind room to plot and plan. It also keeps me from turning into a grumpy bitch when I have stayed up late writing, plotting my next novel, reading a book, talking to my teenager (why does he only want to talk after 9pm?) or possibly maybe staying up watching a Firefly marathon.

I’m giddy when I go to take a nap, smiling and jumping onto the bed and snuggling under the covers. Naps are a very happy part of my day.

One interesting fact, at least it’s interesting to me, I don’t move when I nap. I don’t know why. I lie on my side, fall asleep and wake up in the same position. If I can keep napping, I move then, but while I’m sleeping I don’t move. Why? I’m all comfy in bed, so why don’t I shift while I’m napping? I move around when I sleep at night. It’s just weird, and this morning, while I’m too tired to work on my WIP, it seems interesting enough to be a blog post.
Do you need anything special when you nap?

Today’s music Monday is the Romanian contest for the Song Contest and a little eye candy of the female kind 🙂

  1. My mother is a big fan of naps. I only take them when I can no longer stay awake. For me a nap is like an appetizer. It gives me just enough energy to do what must be done before I pass out for a solid night’s sleep. Usually that means getting up and fixing dinner and then heading to bed. Of course the fact that, given the opportunity, I sleep for a solid 10 hours at night, I may just have ruined myself for naps.

  2. I can’t take naps–I end up with a headache if I do. It also makes me feel like I’m wasting time, which is silly, I know lol. (Also, Firefly FTW!)

    Nice to meet you, Alica 🙂

  3. I’m envious! Not so much that your job/schedule permits you naps, but that you *can*! Once I get up, I can’t sleep during the day unless I’m sick. But your job sounds like it can be pretty demanding, so it’s good that you can. I make do like August does. 🙂

  4. I don’t have time for naps, but sometimes my body simply gives out on me. I don’t move when I sleep either. I lay on my back with my arms crossed like Dracula. LOL I will wake up the same way. I learned to sleep like that when I was pregnant and never went back. They say it is the sign of a good REM sleeper. 😉

  5. Naps are so refreshing but I rarely take them because I have so many exciting things to do during the day.

    And thanks for sharing the Eurovision songs. You’re getting me excited for this year’s show 😀
