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.

The Best Way to Create a Vision for the Life You Want

The Best Way to Create a Vision for the Life You Want

Creating a vision for your life might seem like a frivolous, fantastical waste of time, but it’s not: creating a compelling vision of the life you want is actually one of the most effective strategies for achieving the life of your dreams. Perhaps the best way to look at the concept of a life vision is as a compass to help guide you to take the best actions and make the right choices that help propel you toward your best life.

your vision of where or who you want to be is the greatest asset you have

    Why You Need a Vision

    Experts and life success stories support the idea that with a vision in mind, you are more likely to succeed far beyond what you could otherwise achieve without a clear vision. Think of crafting your life vision as mapping a path to your personal and professional dreams. Life satisfaction and personal happiness are within reach. The harsh reality is that if you don’t develop your own vision, you’ll allow other people and circumstances to direct the course of your life.

    How to Create Your Life Vision

    Don’t expect a clear and well-defined vision overnight—envisioning your life and determining the course you will follow requires time, and reflection. You need to cultivate vision and perspective, and you also need to apply logic and planning for the practical application of your vision. Your best vision blossoms from your dreams, hopes, and aspirations. It will resonate with your values and ideals, and will generate energy and enthusiasm to help strengthen your commitment to explore the possibilities of your life.

    What Do You Want?

    The question sounds deceptively simple, but it’s often the most difficult to answer. Allowing yourself to explore your deepest desires can be very frightening. You may also not think you have the time to consider something as fanciful as what you want out of life, but it’s important to remind yourself that a life of fulfillment does not usually happen by chance, but by design.

    It’s helpful to ask some thought-provoking questions to help you discover the possibilities of what you want out of life. Consider every aspect of your life, personal and professional, tangible and intangible. Contemplate all the important areas, family and friends, career and success, health and quality of life, spiritual connection and personal growth, and don’t forget about fun and enjoyment.

    Some tips to guide you:

    • Remember to ask why you want certain things
    • Think about what you want, not on what you don’t want.
    • Give yourself permission to dream.
    • Be creative. Consider ideas that you never thought possible.
    • Focus on your wishes, not what others expect of you.

    Some questions to start your exploration:

    • What really matters to you in life? Not what should matter, what does matter.
    • What would you like to have more of in your life?
    • Set aside money for a moment; what do you want in your career?
    • What are your secret passions and dreams?
    • What would bring more joy and happiness into your life?
    • What do you want your relationships to be like?
    • What qualities would you like to develop?
    • What are your values? What issues do you care about?
    • What are your talents? What’s special about you?
    • What would you most like to accomplish?
    • What would legacy would you like to leave behind?

    It may be helpful to write your thoughts down in a journal or creative vision board if you’re the creative type. Add your own questions, and ask others what they want out of life. Relax and make this exercise fun. You may want to set your answers aside for a while and come back to them later to see if any have changed or if you have anything to add.

    What Would Your Best Life Look Like?

    Describe your ideal life in detail. Allow yourself to dream and imagine, and create a vivid picture. If you can’t visualize a picture, focus on how your best life would feel. If you find it difficult to envision your life 20 or 30 years from now, start with five years—even a few years into the future will give you a place to start. What you see may surprise you. Set aside preconceived notions. This is your chance to dream and fantasize.

    A few prompts to get you started:

    • What will you have accomplished already?
    • How will you feel about yourself?
    • What kind of people are in your life? How do you feel about them?
    • What does your ideal day look like?
    • Where are you? Where do you live? Think specifics, what city, state, or country, type of community, house or an apartment, style and atmosphere.
    • What would you be doing?
    • Are you with another person, a group of people, or are you by yourself?
    • How are you dressed?
    • What’s your state of mind? Happy or sad? Contented or frustrated?
    • What does your physical body look like? How do you feel about that?
    • Does your best life make you smile and make your heart sing? If it doesn’t, dig deeper, dream bigger.

    It’s important to focus on the result, or at least a way-point in your life. Don’t think about the process for getting there yet—that’s the next stepGive yourself permission to revisit this vision every day, even if only for a few minutes. Keep your vision alive and in the front of your mind.

    Plan Backwards

    It may sound counter-intuitive to plan backwards rather than forwards, but when you’re planning your life from the end result, it’s often more useful to consider the last step and work your way back to the first. This is actually a valuable and practical strategy for making your vision a reality.

    • What’s the last thing that would’ve had to happen to achieve your best life?
    • What’s the most important choice you would’ve had to make?
    • What would you have needed to learn along the way?
    • What important actions would you have had to take?
    • What beliefs would you have needed to change?
    • What habits or behaviors would you have had to cultivate?
    • What type of support would you have had to enlist?
    • How long will it have taken you to realize your best life?
    • What steps or milestones would you have needed to reach along the way?

    Now it’s time to think about your first step, and the next step after that. Ponder the gap between where you are now and where you want to be in the future. It may seem impossible, but it’s quite achievable if you take it step-by-step.

    It’s important to revisit this vision from time to time. Don’t be surprised if your answers to the questions, your technicolor vision, and the resulting plans change. That can actually be a very good thing; as you change in unforeseeable ways, the best life you envision will change as well. For now, it’s important to use the process, create your vision, and take the first step towards making that vision a reality.
