There is no tired like teacher tired, especially at the end of a 5 day week. I am actually writing this from the comfort of my bed. It is not even 8:00 and I am already thinking about my nap tomorrow.
While my weekend is filled with some straightening of my home, doing work for my grad class, and catching up with my recorded shows from the week, there are also naps involved in my plans.
Yes, I said naps. I love my naps. It is something I do quite regularly. On the weekends I look at my plans schedule around them around when I can take a nap.
I know that for many naps seem like a luxury but for me it is a another way I practice self-care.
First, I get into my comfy clothes…if I am not already in them. It is important that you are feeling relaxed and not constricted.
Next, I shut the lights and put on the fan. My husband has been a fan sleeper since college and now I am too.
Then it is time for my slumber. My naps can last from 45 minutes to 2 hours. It depends on what my body needs.
After my nap, I am ready for whatever comes next. I highly recommend you try a nap this weekend.
Happy Weekend to All!
