Regardless, I headed out and did an awesome 8.8km run and was home by 8:30am.
That left me with the whole day to enjoy while Marcus was at golf. I already had grand plans after enjoying breakfast outside in the morning sun.
The morning was taken up with preparations and packing for our trip, but the afternoon was wide open. Perfect napping conditions.
Now, there are a few things to consider when contemplating a nap;
- do you have something else to do? It is really hard to relax into a nap (regardless of my tiredness) if the house is messy, there is washing to hang up or I need to do the grocery shopping. Get all those distractions done and dusted.
- Do you need to go out that night? This is not an issue for naps per say, but it will affect the timing of your nap. I can wake up initially feeling more tired than when I went to sleep, but after an hour or so I feel more refreshed. A shorter nap may be in order here.
- are you a bed or a lounge (sofa) napper? I am straight into bed, our bed is like a cloud and I absolutely love being in it so I will take every opportunity to! If you are taking the lounge option, is there someone else home likely to keep you awake or distract you?
Yes, I am almost 30 and I need the occasional nap. Sometimes they are more than occasional....
