N is for Naps #AtoZChallenge

Can you believe I almost couldn’t figure out what to pick for N? I mean, honestly. I am a champion napper. I was before the pandemic, and I probably will be after the pandemic.

Part of this is because I’m severely sleep deprived, sure. But the other part is that I love naps. In fact, I took two yesterday and still went to bed at my regular time.

I shouldn’t brag about that, though, because one nap was to recover from motion sickness, which is apparently a thing you can get FROM YOUR PHONE as I discovered the day before yesterday (and also why this post is a day late). The other was to recover from the migraine the motion sickness gave me.

So they weren’t fun naps.

But they were still naps.

It is also well-documented that the thing I miss most about summer and winter vacation is my post-lunch naps.

So what I’m saying is naps are magic. At least for me.

Oh, and if you’re not already, you may want to consider following the Nap Ministry on Instagram who explain why it’s especially important for Black people to embrace the power of naps.

We’ll just start here:

Get into it.


For this year’s A to Z Challenge, I have decided that I’m going to focus on my survival/coping strategies while practicing social distancing. What are the things that make it bearable? What helps alleviate my stress and fear–or at least what distracts me from both? Tune in tomorrow to see what I choose for O!
