n is for napping in a nook

napping day is an unofficial holiday that falls on the monday after daylight savings time begins in the united states. the day was created as a way to compensate for the hour people lose because of the time change. this is one holiday that most people can get behind.

studies have shown that one or more short naps during the day can help increase productivity and alertness. it is believed that many successful people in history napped often such as: einstein, churchill, and napoleon.

how to celebrate?

  • take a short nap.
  • if your country does not observe DST, then follow the DST and napping day schedule of another country. why lose out on a holiday just because your country doesn’t have DST?

did you know…

…that a NASA study among pilots and astronauts found that short naps can increase performance by 34% and alertness by 54%?

“the replenishing thing that comes with a nap

– you end up with two mornings in a day.”

what makes a man?


 it took a small village of kinders to make a man.



they hiked through the deep snow.



they went in the playhouse to eat some snow and get pumped up about it.


they worked hard to push heavy loads almost a big as they were.


they built. and they built.


and they moved mountains.


and they crowned him with a prized possession.


and we celebrated with a song and a dance around the man they created.



and in the seventh hour, they rested. 

 Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world;

indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.
