Do You Remember When We Used to Hate Napping as a Child?

Read Time:1 Minute, 30 Second

Remember the good ol’ days when we were tiny tots, and the worst thing that could happen was being told it’s naptime? Man, we had it tough, right? Naps. Those evil little breaks that interrupted our mighty Lego tower builds or when we were THIS close to beating the final boss in our favourite game.

Funny thinking about it now, right? Back in the day, we’d roll our eyes so hard, thinking, “Really? A nap? Now?!” We probably felt like superheroes who didn’t need to rest. And every minute staring at that boring ceiling was like a golden playtime minute down the drain. Young us, always thinking we had better things to do.

Now, zoom into today. Suddenly, naps look like that VIP pass to an exclusive club. Between the never-ending Zoom calls, the to-do lists that never seem to shrink, and somehow more dirty dishes than before, squeezing in a quick snooze feels like winning the lottery. No joke, a little nap is like hitting the jackpot in the middle of a workweek.

Why did we suddenly start adoring naps, though? Well, besides the fact that adulting is exhausting, we’ve kinda figured out that naps are like those little battery boosters. A quick nap is like getting a cheat code for an energy burst. We’ve also realised we’re not these invincible kiddos anymore, and sometimes, a break is exactly what we need to not turn into Mr. Grumpy Pants.

Now they’re like that limited-edition toy everyone wants but is always sold out. If you’re one of those legends managing to snag a nap now and then, live it up! Enjoy it like it’s a secret stash of candy. And if not? It’s all good. Even daydreaming about napping is a win.
