Sleep is highly under rated
Every night I go how with the intention of doing something creative but I have been constantly exhausted for a couple of weeks now. I am pretty sure it come from doing too much and not sleeping enough. But I find myself taking power naps where ever I can fit them in and I have this amazing ability to sleep anywhere at anytime so it works.
My number 1 place for a power nap is on the train. Every weekday morning and evening I have 25 minutes to myself on the train. This time is usually reserved for reading or playing word games on my ipod but recently I have been using this valuable time for napping. Train naps usually work out well for me except this morning I drooled on myself a bit. I am pretty sure that no one saw but drooling in public is never a good thing. Sleeping in public is a bit tricky. There are always things to worry about like, drooling (oops), snoring, personal space, and keeping hold of belongings. So sleeping in public should always be done with care.
There are many moments and places that are good for napping though. Some of these naps anger my husband. These anger inducing moments include car rides while the husband is driving, on the couch while pretending to watch a movie and in pop up trailers in the driveway on the side of the interstate. I am pretty sure my husband's anger just comes from his jealousy of my amazing ability to sleep any time any place. He will just have to live with it though because I am not giving up my power naps.
