Have you ever laid down midday to catch a few minutes of rejuvenating zzzzz's only to awaken several hours later wondering where the daylight went? Oversleeping can be magickal if you don't go into a panic. Extra sleep is a gift. Graciously accept that your higher self took advantage of the situation and gave your body and mind the rest it needed.
What is a Power Nap?A power nap is typically a 20 to 45 minute nap taken in the afternoon. A power nap can be adequately refreshing, and at times more restful than a full night's slumber. Some people routinely take midday naps. Occasional nap takers average two to four naps each month. More napping occurs in the winter months, less in the summer.
If you've been pulling some all nighters or if you could use a midday perk power napping is a convenient and enjoyable way to pay back the body's sleep bank.
Sleep generally will not come when your body is reclined if your mind won't relax. If sleep doesn't come within the first fifteen minutes you might as might as well give up on your nap and get active. Or, forget about actually sleeping and try a meditative practice as an alternative. Listening to some soft music, taking a mental escape, or reading a novel might be the ticket for your relaxation.
