12 Feelings Only People Who Love Taking Naps Would Know

12 Feelings Only People Who Love Taking Naps Would Know

Do you love naps? Some people love to nap every day, and for others it is an occasional treat. Naps give you energy and make you feel more productive – and it feels great to be in bed during the afternoon.

Check out 12 feelings only people who love naps would know.

1. You are jealous of babies and pets

Whenever you spend time with pets and babies you feel insanely jealous of their relaxed lifestyle. Wake up, eat some food, take a nap…. To you, it sounds like the perfect day.

2. You kind of like the disoriented feeling when you wake up

You actually kind of like the feeling of waking up from a nap and feeling disorientated with no idea what time it is. Most people dislike it, but to you it is just proof that you caught up on some much needed z’s.

3. You plan naps for later in the day

You love naps so much that you often plan a nap for later in the day while you’re still eating breakfast. The only thing that actually motivates you to get up and go to work is the fact that you have a nap planned for as soon as you get home.

4. You set alarms when you nap because you love to snooze

If you didn’t set an alarm when you napped you would probably sleep right through until the next morning. However, one alarm isn’t enough; sleepy you will switch it off and go right back to sleep, so instead you set about 5 alarms to guarantee you will wake up.

5. Whenever you go to a furniture shop you want to take a nap

Every time you go to a furniture or home décor shop the first thing you want to look at is the beds. You’re not even planning on buying one – you’re just fantasizing about taking a nap in one.

6. You always read articles about the benefits of napping

You always click on any article about the benefits of napping, no matter how ridiculous the article is. You just want solid proof that your beloved naps are good for you.

7. So you know ALL of the benefits of napping

You already know that napping can increase productivity – in fact, you pretty much know EVERYTHING there is to know about napping.

8. Sometimes you accidently nap through the night

On more than one occasion you have settled down for a quick nap, slept through and woken up the next morning. You always feel weirdly guilty about this, but it never deters you from napping again.

9. You like long car rides because you can nap

Most of your family hates road trips, but you always look forward to them. Not for the car games or the jokes – for you, it is all about the opportunity to have a peaceful nap under a warm blanket.

10. You convince yourself to take naps

You love naps so much that sometimes you actually convince yourself that a nap is absolutely essential. You tell yourself that you will be more productive and energised after your nap – and then you wake up feeling groggy, unable to do anything other than binge-watch Netflix.

11. You don’t understand 10 minute naps

You find people that can nap for ten minutes strange and bizarre. How do they manage to wake up so quickly? Does it even count as a nap if it is shorter than half an hour?

12. If you stay at a hotel the first thing you search for is the “Do Not Disturb” sign

The first thing you do when you’re staying at a hotel is find the “Do Not Disturb” sign. You’ve been woken up before by an apologetic maid, and it was super awkward. Now you always make sure you find the sign so you can have a peaceful, uninterrupted nap.

How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

As it appears, the human mind is not capable of not thinking, at least on the subconscious level. Our mind is always occupied by thoughts, whether we want to or not, and they influence our every action.

When we were still children, our thoughts seemed to be purely positive. Have you ever been around a 4-year old who doesn’t like a painting he or she drew? I haven’t. Instead, I see glee, exciting and pride in children’s eyes. But as the years go by, we clutter our mind with doubts, fears and self-deprecating thoughts.

Just imagine then, how much we limit ourselves in every aspect of our lives if we give negative thoughts too much power!

We’ll never go after that job we’ve always wanted because our nay-saying thoughts make us doubt our abilities.

We’ll never ask that person we like out on a date because we always think we’re not good enough.

We’ll never risk quitting our job in order to pursue the life and the work of our dreams because we can’t get over our mental barrier that insists we’re too weak, too unimportant and too dumb.

We’ll never lose those pounds that risk our health because we believe we’re not capable of pushing our limits.

And we’ll never be able to fully see our inner potential because we simply don’t dare to question the voices in our head…

But enough is enough! It’s time to stop these limiting beliefs and come to a place of sanity, love and excitement about life, work and ourselves.

So, how can we tap into the power of positivity?

“Happiness cannot come from without, it comes from within.” – Helen Keller

It’s not as hard as it may seem; you just have to practice, practice, practice. Here are 4 simple yet powerful ideas on how you can get started.

1. Learn to substitute every negative thought with a positive one.

Every time a negative thought crawls into your mind, replace it with a positive thought. It’s just like someone writes a phrase you don’t like on a blackboard and then you get up, erase it and write something much more to your liking.

Just take a look at these 10 Positive Affirmations for Success that will Change your Life.

2. See the positive side of every situation, even when you are surrounded by pure negativity.

This one is a bit harder to put into practice, which does not mean it’s impossible.

You can find positivity in everything by mentally holding on to something positive, whether this be family, friends, your faith, nature, someone’s sparkling eyes or whatever other glimmer of beauty.

If you seek it, you will find it.

3. At least once a day, take a moment and think of 5 things you are grateful for.

This will lighten your mood and give you some perspective of what really is important in life and how many blessings surround you already.

Here’re 60 Things To Be Thankful For In Life that can inspire you.

4. Change the mental images you allow to enter your mind.

How you see yourself and your surroundings make a huge difference to your thinking.

Instead of dwelling on dark, negative thoughts, consciously build and focus on positive, light and colorful images, thoughts and situations in your mind a few times a day.

Learn from this article how to change your mental images: How to Think Positive and Eliminate Negative Thoughts

If you are persistent and keep on working on yourself, your mind will automatically reject its negative thoughts and welcome the positive ones.

And remember:

You are (or will become) what you think you are.

This is reasonable enough to be proactive about whatever is going on in your head.
