Moments of Zen For My 90 Day Cleanse - #4

What better way to spend Q4 than focusing completely on the health of mind and body?  It has been a rough ride this year and Matt and I have agreed to spend the months of October, November, and December focusing on eating right, clearing our brains of toxic blahs, and exercising together.  Every few days throughout the 90, I will post individual bits of bodhi that I am using to help clear my head, my heart, and my body.

Nap.

Dogs and cats have the right idea.  Nap it out.  When I'm tired, it means I need more sleep - NOT more caffeine.  Not 5-Hour Energy.  Just good hearty sleep.  I like to take the advice of Volt, who seems to have perfected the concept, and find a comfortable spot to allow my body and brain some down time to recuperate and re-energize.



Want more deets around the benefits of napping?  Check out this article: Unleash The Power of The Nap.  For an even more in-depth understanding of how and when to make nice with the Zzzzz Monster, have a peeksie at this graphic from The Boston Globe:
