It’s FRIDAY! We have a crazy weekend planned – like balls to the wall busy. So, naturally, today I’m off gettin’ my hair done. And it’s about time! Earlier this week, I updated my Facebook status to read “My roots are trying to kill me.” While I’m sitting in the salon chair, I’ve got Alicia from Naps Happen here for my Friday Take Over! Have you been to Naps Happen? It’s freaking hilarious. Who doesn’t love looking at photos of babies and toddlers crashed out in the most ridiculous places and positions? Help me welcome Naps Happen!
It’s no secret that we all suffer from a lot of stress now in our everyday lives. From jobs to family obligations, each and every one of us seems to have too many balls in the air these days. However, never fear! I am here to offer some useful suggestions for overcoming that craziness and feeling more centered.
First, I highly recommend yoga or pilates. It may be hard to get your mind to unplug during class, but people seem to manage it, eventually.
Don’t forget about meditation! People the world over have been practicing it for time out of mind. Word on the street is, it works.
Sometimes all you need is to shut the world out. Retire to your favorite secluded corner and…you know…hide.
Don’t allow yourself to be consumed by the many tasks at hand. You may be surrounded by a pile of materialistic crap, but just block it out!
Some people find that indulging in a hobby can relieve stress. Personally, I like music.
Others prefer a challenging puzzle.
However, some folks swear that gardening is the best way to work off some steam.
One caution: don’t give in to stress eating.
Don’t be afraid to kick off your shoes and put those feet up, folks. You deserve it.
When all else fails, just sleep on it.
I’m feeling like I need to dig through my digital photos and look for some pictures of my girl. Though she wasn’t ever a great napper and certainly not crash napper like these guys, I’m sure I’ve got at least one somewhere. Do you have kids who crash out anywhere, anytime? Tell us about it!
Need more naps? Naps Happen is all over social media: Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram! And definitely go give Naps Happen some “like” love on Facebook! Feeling like laughing some more? Check out these guest nappers: Doggie Diving, Beauty…No, Booty Sleep, and Sleepy Surfing.
