There are few things in life I find as glorious and self indulgent as taking a nap in the middle of the day. Lucky for me, I get to do this a couple times a week! My current schedule requires that I get up around 6am for work and I'm at roller derby practice til 9 or 10 some nights. Most days, I can't make it that long without some rest in between! I like to come home from work around 2-3pm, change into a t-shirt and yoga pants, then crawl into bed under the blankets with a book. It usually doesn't take long til I'm surrounded by pets and drifting off to sleep. Sometimes I don't actually sleep more than 20-30 minutes but I usually feel refreshed when I get up. Sometimes it's the act of lying down and physically resting, decompressing after a busy shift at work that regenerates me and readies me for the rest of my day and evening. There's something about waking up with the afternoon sun streaming in, feeling warm and sleepy that makes me feel happy and lucky to have this little moment to myself.
