One Nap at a Time
I hear that in many countries employees are expected to take a little rest during the work day. The time spent relaxing helps keep them happy and productive.
Indy and Bogey siesta frequently. Like most critters, getting plenty of sleep is mandatory in order to have sufficient energy for leaping to refrigerator tops or chasing pesky squirrels.
Years ago I'd never even have considered taking a nap, but now I realize the concept is brilliant.
What if we went back to having daily nap times, just like we did in kindergarten? You roll out your mat and I roll out mine. Then we can all have milk and cookies and be best friends. I'm pretty sure the world would be a much better place to live in if we were all best friends.
I haven't heard it mentioned by any of the current candidates (though goodness knows they have enough to say on every other topic), but my vote will go to the one who endorses daily naps.
Because that's the kind of change I can really believe in.
