Christine vs Nap Time: The Battle of FOMO
I admit, I struggle with FOMO (Fear of Missing Out). It's so bad that I try so hard not to nap and this happened to me Monday after work so it was only right to vent about it on Tuesday's segment of Christine-ology
Just give in. You know you want to.
No! You can’t make me.
But it feels so good. Stop fighting it.
No. I’m not ready. I really want to watch this show first or try and get some work done first. I think I have stuff around the house I need to do.
C’mon. Just lay back, let your head sink into the pillow, and close your eyes. They’re already getting heavy.
No. Not yet. I won’t let you do this to me.
It’s happening. You can’t stop it now.
No. I’m fighting it.
Just give in. That’s right. Now close both of your eyes and let the wonderful world of sleep take over.
The point of ‘Christine-ology’ is what’s going on in my brain and this is actual dialogue in my brain as I try to fight the urge to nap.
You’re probably wondering, “but why Christine? Sleep is amazing.” You’re right, it is. But I struggle with FOMO. Even if I’m not doing anything I feel like if I sleep when the sun is still out I’m going to miss out on something or be behind on my daily duties. I also hate that groggy feeling of when you wake up from a nap and wonder what time or day it is.
But much like a toddler, as much as I try to fight it, more times than not, nap time wins.
Christine-ology is every Tuesday and Thursday at 7:20 a.m.
