nappy.

Standard

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?

Standard

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

Image

 

they hiked through the deep snow.

Image

 

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

Image

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

Image

they built. and they built.

Image

and they moved mountains.

Image

and they crowned him with a prized possession.

Image

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

Image

 

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.
