Nap Time??

I'm beginning to think that I need to include some Power Naps into my daily routine.

I get the hell scared out of me every work day at 4:33 AM by the sounds of that damn alarm clock. Normally I can just spring up(sit on the edge of the bed for two minutes) and stagger to the kitchen for coffee.

Once the caffeine kicks in, I'm alert and ready to take on the world!

Unfortunately that doesn't last very long.

Okay fast forward thru the day, run or strength train at lunch......

Here is where my engine starts to sputter on the ride home!!!! Why is that?

I can remember in my youth when I was energized when I left work!!!!

So what I'm thinking is that I could possibly take a 30 minute nap once I get home and not everyday but just when needed.... Hey, professional athletes do it all the time.

An entire country takes Siestas on a regular basis....

Does anyone out there rest their eyelids on a regular basis during the day????

Oh yeah, I haven't heard from my one participant that did the Rock N Roll in San Diego but her time was awesome........

Have you ever watched Seinfeld? Maybe you can hook up something George Costanza style. He had a blanket and such under his desk and would sleep the work day away.

I find as I age that I also can't stay asleep at night, no matter how tired I am during the day. (That it is now 2 a.m. confirms it.)

Since you're a baseball fan, what did you think about Strasburg's game last night? For all of the pressure on him, he handled it quite well.

I haven't taken naps since college. Sure I could use them...too bad they aren't allowed in the working world.

Sometimes I'll go to bed super early if I need to catch up on sleep. Otherwise I tend to be a night owl and rely on caffeine + runner's high to stay alert.
