When you lay down Good things happen.

Why Siesta should be a national pastime.
Siesta, is a tradition in many spanish speaking and Iberian cultures.

It is where the whole nation takes a nap. Coincidentally I learned of it, when I was very close to a nap in Spanish class. I shouldn’t have to say more. Siesta, is where there is a mat in every cubicle and a glass of apple juice with a side of graham crakers in every snack machine. Really, they have found productivity goes up, when people have naps. Think about your day, (overacheivers skip to question 4b.)

If you are like most people you have a tendency to load up on sugar crap breakfast and diet pop and

a.) buzz buzz around much to the silent chargin of your co-workers.

Or B.) stalk your desk looking intently at the work hoping it will go away and playing pencil pop with yourself.

And then do what, at about 3pm, dream about sunlight until you clock out.

For the exceptional people we have a different way of approaching it. The work gets done but we loathe the idea that we cannot be elsewhere. The fact that we didn’t have a nap just adds to a certain lethargy when we get home. Ok maybe not WE, because I do try to take naps whenever possible. It’s a part of my religion.

I mean if God didn’t want us to nap then why did he put Adam down and pull out that rib. God could have blinked and said rib, and then It was good. And there would have been not only a rib but a pint of ‘Rich&Sassy’ sauce.

and families have more time together. (Maybe that’s not such a good point, but most families love each other, if you don’t love your family there’s always yourself, or your dog).

I must apologize if this isn't exciting... though this may seem odd my decision to enter the blogging world, was less for an audience and more for me as an exercise in discipline, which i clearly lack if you see the frequency of the posts, but still it is weird because I am airing my thoughts on the biggest communication tool since the pony express, but if you like what you read feel free to comment and/or share... if not thank you for taking the time out of your life to check me out.... I'm pretty laid back, and I'm open for comments....

  1. Hear – hear! I going to make sure that we institute mid-afternoon siestas at my company starting tomorrow.

    But how does a nap increase the time that families spend together if people are napping on cots in their cubicles?

  2. Well in traditional siesta you go home, and have down time with your family.

    A NAP IS A WONDERFUL THING IT REJUVINATES YOU IT DOES CAUSE PRODUCTIVITY IN MOST CASES, THAT IT IS IF YOU DO SOME WORK AFTER YOU NAP OR JUST CONTINUE TO SLEEP AND SLEEP AND SLEEP
