Art Of The Nap by Harriet Griffey
21st-century living demands a longer working day than ever before. As a consequence, the majority of the adult working population is sleep deprived, to the point where their emotional and creative life suffers. The secret to survival lies in the nap - already acknowledged by stress, health and productivity experts as the answer to a more successful and relaxed life. But naps aren't just for the sleep deprived and work weary, they are an end in themselves - time out for restful contemplation and relaxation. An antidote to the stresses and strains of daily life. Twenty minutes a day of essential 'me-time' - to be used solely for the benefit of the individual. But it doesn't come easy to the uninitiated - taking time out for the self takes practice for many. There is an art to the nap, and it needs to be learnt. This inspiring little book looks at the art of the nap from every angle, the history, famous nappers, colours to promote rest, learning how to nap, types of nap and music to nap by to name a few. The wonderfully restful words are accompanied by contemporary photographs to inspire even the most active person to nap.
