Embrace the Power of Napping

The No Activity Period (N.A.P.) or Just Pure Bliss

I’ve recently learned the power of napping.  Although it often happens without my consent nowadays. Sleep is one of the pillars of building a good immune system.  Other countries understand this concept of taking it easy or slowing down. Businesses close down in the middle of the day for 2 to 3 hours and come back refreshed later in the day.  But over here, we tend to burn the candle at both ends and unfortunately, when those ends meet, we are burnt out, no good to ourselves nor the business. 

In the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, the concept of taking a nap often seems like an indulgence, a guilty pleasure that we can ill-afford. However, let's turn that notion on its head and celebrate the magic of a midday siesta.  The No Activity Period, or N.A.P., is not just an acronym; it's a declaration of self-care and a secret weapon for a healthier, more productive life.

Picture this: the clock strikes 2 PM, and instead of battling through the post-lunch slump, you declare a No Activity Period. It's time to indulge in a delightful nap, a brief escape from the chaos of the day. As you ease into the embrace of your cozy nap spot, you're not just taking a break; you're giving your body and mind the rest they deserve. However, you need to pick a spot other than your desk!

Why is this No Activity Period so crucial, you ask? Well, research shows that short naps can boost mood, enhance alertness, and improve performance. It's not just about catching up on lost sleep; it's about unlocking your full potential. Plus, a well-timed nap can be a game-changer for your immune system. Sleep is like a potion that strengthens our body's defenses, making it more resilient against illnesses.

By the way, let's also talk about the dynamic duo: exercise and immune systems. No Activity Period isn't just about napping; it's about understanding the relationship between physical activity and our body's defense mechanisms. Regular exercise contributes to overall well-being, and when combined with quality sleep, it becomes a powerhouse for a robust immune system.

So, the next time someone tells you that napping is for the lazy, proudly declare your allegiance to the No Activity Period movement. Embrace the nap, savor the stillness, and let your body revel in the joy of rejuvenation. After all, a well-rested you is a healthier, happier you. It's time to redefine the NAP – No Activity Period: it’s just pure bliss!  Ahhhhhhh. 

We would love to hear about your "nap" routine. How do you pause during the day, so you don't burn out?

Reading about napping, reminded me of a memory. it was a Sunday afternoon and we were visiting my in-laws. Pop took a nap in his chair. When he woke up my five year old daughter asked him, "Grandpa why do you wear your glasses when you sleep?" He replied, " So I can see Grandma in my dreams"


When times allows in my day I take a nap! I find this re-charge helps me to pay attention to what is going on around me and leads me to feeling content, yet fired up to complete the rest of the day.
