106 | Us & Kids: Naps

Inspiration from this Episode 

“As we nap, it reduces the fatigue, not just the physical fatigue but also that mental fatigue.” 

“It's not a bad idea to consider a nap when you're overwhelmed, because it gets you out of the way and lets your body naturally do the reset that it needs.” 

“You demonstrate to your kiddos as well, that taking good care of themselves is an important thing to do.”

You can go all over the place with napping conversations. So today we're just going to talk a little bit, mostly from a general place, because napping is good for kiddos. It's often also good for adults. It helps us relax and it often reduces stress and some fatigue.
