Sunday Siesta - Sunday is a great day set aside for rest making Sunday’s a great day to take a siesta also known as a nap.

What is a siesta?

“Siesta” refers to a short nap or rest, especially taken in the early afternoon, typically in warm climates like in Spain or Latin America. The term originates from the Spanish word “siesta,” which means “nap” or “midday rest.” It’s a cultural tradition in many countries where the climate tends to be hot during the afternoon hours, making it ideal for a break from work or other activities.

Even God took a siesta

God created everything and He rested after creating everything. If God rested, that shows we should rest too. I thank God that He gives us rest!

Go worship Him in church and then go home and rest … take a siesta nap. It is one of my favorite things to do on Sunday.

Benefits of midday nap:

  1. Increased Alertness: A midday nap can help boost alertness and concentration, making you more productive and focused for the rest of the day.
  2. Improved Memory: Studies have shown that taking a nap during the day can enhance memory consolidation, helping you retain information better.
  3. Reduced Stress: Napping can help reduce stress levels by giving your body and mind a chance to relax and recharge, leading to improved mood and overall well-being.
  4. Enhanced Creativity: A short nap can stimulate creative thinking and problem-solving skills, as it allows your brain to process information more efficiently and make novel connections.
  5. Better Physical Health: Regular midday naps have been linked to various health benefits, including lower blood pressure, reduced risk of heart disease, and improved immune function.

Length of a nap?


The ideal nap duration varies for individuals, but generally, a nap of around 10 to 30 minutes is recommended to boost alertness and productivity without experiencing grogginess.

Longer naps, around 60 to 90 minutes, can include a full sleep cycle and provide more restorative benefits. However, napping for too long can lead to sleep inertia, causing you to feel even more tired upon waking.

Sleep inertia is the groggy, disoriented feeling experienced upon waking from sleep, particularly from a deep sleep or a nap. It can impair cognitive function, reaction time, and overall alertness, and typically lasts for a few minutes to up to an hour after waking.

I wished we could take a siesta during the work week, mid-shift. In a since you can if you did a short one during the lunch break.

Do you like taking naps?
