We all know how important it is to rest as we race through our frantic, over-extended lives. God felt so strongly about it He made it a commandment. I believe He knew that tired people would be more likely to break other commandments, e.g. murdering, taking His name in vain, and worshipping false gods like Doritos, Chardonnay and Twitter.
How much more can we enhance fruits of the spirit like love, kindness, and gentleness by taking a time out?
Let’s change the world for the better by getting rested up, one nap at a time.
Making a plan
I found that making a plan to sail to the land of Nod was as daunting as plotting the coordinates for a trip across the Atlantic. Since I’ve had some success integrating exercise into my daily routine, I wondered if I could apply the same approach to seizing Z’s.
I remember the last time I parked at Walmart, and got 30 minutes of aerobic exercise looking for the car. Even though I knew this was a great alternative to the gym, I was tired. So it’s
possible probable definite I broke a commandment about 10 minutes into my workout. Inspired by this shameful memory and taking the lead of children, I have set sail to navigate napping in everyday life.
Drying your hair
I know I shouldn’t do it and the User Manual has warned me about it, but I still get some extra sleep while I dry my hair. I think the fear factor actually triggers a fainting spell.
If you aren’t comfortable with any of my suggestions check out “Google Naps.” This is a crowd-sourced Google Maps-based site that lays out the best places around THE WORLD for you to lay down. We are on the cutting edge of a world-wide ‘stop’ movement.
When a stranger falls asleep on the train I like to leave them a note saying, your face tastes weird, what moisturiser do you use?
