The Power of a Nap

nap at work

Wednesday after school, I decided to take a nap. I felt relaxed all evening.

Last night, I pushed through my sleepy period and paid for it later.

Exhaustion doesn't work for me. Stress is mounting at school and sadly, I'm not handling it very well. ;(

I read up a little bit on the power of a nap this morning and learned that even a 10-minute nap helps our body and brain in many ways.

Isn't it interesting that even the Creator of the Universe took an entire day to rest after setting our world in motion?

He instituted rest from the very beginning and actually the Sabbath Day was the first thing of all the amazing things that He had done that He called "holy."

I am committing today to create "holy" naptimes as often as I need them.

Fatigue is a choice that I do not have to make.

I hope that you will find time today or this afternoon to rest your eyes for just a bit and have a wonderful weekend.

There is power in a nap.

Genesis 2:2

By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.
