Make Naptime Great Again
How to make napping a family affairA family schedule is rarely consistent, particularly when there are multiple children involved. Choosing one time of day for everyone to nap may be impossible. Picking a range of hours for everyone to get a nap in might be a better idea. Napping too late in the afternoon is problematic, because you won't recover as well and you will inhibit the ability to go to sleep- which many children already struggle with. Naptime should ideally take place between the hours of 1-4pm. Ideally, kids should come home from school and get a good nap in before starting homework or other activities. Use a timer to make sure everyone hits that optimal one hour mark for a nap. If you are able to have everyone home and napping at the same time, collect any phones, tablets, TV remotes, or other distracting, stimulating technological devices. Draw the curtains closed and create a calm, dark, peaceful environment for napping. You and the whole family will benefit from a nap, refreshing and rejuvenating your minds to continue taking recovery head on.
