Pampering 101: Cookies and Milk

I’ve been giving the idea of pampering myself great thought. What am I truly craving? What do I need, on a cellular level? A hot bath? A day at the spa? No and No! The answer wasn’t coming, so, I tuned into my body and I asked her directly, “Dearest Body, she who does such an amazing job getting me from here to there each and everyday, is there something that you need, want? How might I shower you in kindness and extreme care?” And my body said, “Nap. I want to take a nap. You just keep overriding my feelings of exhaustion. I want to take a nap.”
Read on and feel free when done to curl up into a comfy ball on your soft sofa and nap
“Think what a better world it would be if we all, the whole world, had cookies and milk about three o’clock every afternoon and then lay down on our blankets for a nap.” ~ Barbara Jordan
Nap! Create Down-Time! Energize Thyself!
The Exhausted Modern World.
The modern world puts enormous value on being as productive as humanly possible, which translates into working through lunch, staying late at the office, scheduling play-dates up the wazoo (or is it gazoo?), taking extra classes. …. You name it, and we’re trying to fit it into our schedules. Our calendars are about to go up in smoke!
It almost feels punishing, doesn’t it?
When exhausted you function less efficiently, feel frustrated, overwhelmed, and guess what … you eat way more. Your body is sending signals that you are low on energy, because it needs more fuel to keep going!
Downtime/Nap Time: A Natural Part of Your Day.
Napping is an opportunity for our minds and body to take a break. Many mammals take naps; and in other parts of the world, napping a.k.a. siestas are worked into the daily routine.
Napping Promotes Health and Well-Being:
30 minute naps promote physical well-being, improve memory and mood;
20 minute naps sharpen your senses and revitalize you; and
10 minute naps can improve mood … feel happy!
If possible, take a nap at the same time every day and use an alarm clock (initially, anyway, until it becomes a part of your routine).
New point of view: Napping is essential to my well-being. It’s okay to crawl up in a corner for a few minutes and close my eyes.

    I believe it was Clint Eastwood as Dirty Harry who said “A man’s got to know his limitations.” Well, a girl’s got to know hers, too! I don’t take a nap every day, much to hubby’s chagrin, but some days I climb into bed and get some needed sleep.
