Taking a nap is not a part of the 9-5 lifestyle.
While those afternoon siesta’s or ‘naps’ are a normal part of the ‘European’ culture, it’s not the norm for the majority of society.
Our life is anything but normal. It’s more a topsy-turvey kaleidoscope of colours really.
My husband works from home, while I work part time in supermarket. We both share the care of the kids.
My workplace will having me working 0600 to 1300 shift (yes 24 hour clock), one week then a 1500 to 2200 shift the week after.
Working odd hours means that I have to get my training done whenever I can fit it in.
Sometimes that means in the morning. Sometimes the during the day, other times at night.
Not having a 9-5 job means that there are some days where I am utterly exhausted.
It’s those days, that the only cure for this exhaustion is a nap.
They give us the energy we need to be able to continue on with our busy day.
