ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
SUNDAY, JULY 20TH, 2014
63 DAYS UNTIL FALL
Sunrise: 6:13 am
Sunset: 8:57 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Drowsy denizens can settle into siestas with impunity on July 20th. It’s Nap Day. Hunker down in a hammock, stretch out in the sand or bed down in your bunk to grab a catnap and catch a few Z's on July 20th.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
It's better to crash into a nap than to nap into a crash.
The best wisdom I’ve got for you today is: take naps when you can. A power nap will boost your memory, cognitive skills, creativity, and energy level.
The 20 minute power nap is good for alertness and motor learning skills like typing and playing the piano. Napping for approximately 30 to 60 minutes is good for decision making skills, such as memorizing vocabulary or recalling directions.
Research has found that napping regularly may reduce stress and even decrease your risk of heart disease. Napping won’t make you smart or assure success, but it can help improve your memory and solve problems.
I do love my naps and can truthfully say I usually have one every day. Sometimes they are short ones and sometimes long ones. I really never had this option until I stopped working, but I know they would have been an immense help had I been able to take one then. I hate to think that my memory could be worse if I didn’t have my naps. It’s bad enough with them. Such are the joys of getting older.
I hope you all have restful and relaxing Sunday and enjoy a nap!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
I count it as a certainty that in paradise, everyone naps.
I have counted at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for over a year and have now reached over 1800 gifts. On my way to 2000. I'm not stopping, but will continue on counting. There is always, always something to be thankful for.
1868. for naps, they are good for you
1869. for another Sunday to renew and refresh
1870. for 3rd Sunday dinners, they are always fun
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
