Any time duration for Siesta?

Maybe it depends on the time available to you.

May be one to two hours?

Ideal Siesta duration is said to be less than 30 minutes, and I feel anything above 30 minutes makes you more lazy and lethargic.

“It’s Sunday, therefore I am 100% motivated to do nothing today!”


Don’t feel bad at all.

These are one of those moments, our ‘life’ is made of !

And these times of Corona pandemic and lock down, think of these bits of life.

Any life’s lessons here ?

“Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted,no solutions searched for. Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us”
Maya Angelou

Many say ‘Rest’ is a waste of time.Do you agree ?

“Rest is not idleness,and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day,listening to the murmur of the water,or watching the clouds float across the sky is by no means a waste of time”
John Lubbock


“Your calm mind is the ultimate weapon against your challenges”
