Siesta

There’s a habit in some countries (especially Latin-American ones) to take a nap right after lunch time. That’s cause the full stomach causes most of the blood in your brain to go to ease digestion, making you groggy and sleepy.

Wouldn’t it be so much easier to have a room to rest for a few minutes after lunch?

And if you would have such a room, would you use it?

More and more offices have implemented this “benefit” for their employees. However, I’m not sure how many use it. I was just thinking yesterday that we’ve lost the habit of savouring time passing by.
When was the last time you’ve indulged in watching the rain fall down, or as they say “smelling the roses”?

I feel that the rhythm imposed by today’s modern, fast paced, fast growing society is slowly killing us. It’s the main cause for stress. You feel compelled to achieve more, faster, with less resources. You work so much you lose track of time. It’s always for a good cause, for later, when you’ll be able to rest, enjoy the slow life, get a house by the beach, spend time with the dear ones. But by that time, this rhythm will be deeply carved in you, and you won’t be able to slow down.

So, how about that one hour daily break after lunch? How about getting up and going outside to smell the fresh air?
