“1. I do not rush or overbook my calendar. I view my calendar with intuition and I have never been lead astray by my intuition. Rest allows you to connect with what you really feel and know. . Grinding keeps you in a cycle of trauma.
2. I will not argue or debate with anyone on social media. You will never worry me. Arguing takes away from time I can use to nap. It is a radical act for a black woman to decide and practice a "no arguing/debate" policy because most people use these platforms to argue and most people assume they have access to black women for this role. The theories of the Nap Ministry have close to 20 years of practice/research and 4 years of graduate studies in one of the top seminaries in country. If you wanna argue or don't agree, don't follow and go start your own organization and blog about it.
3. I rest everyday for at least 30 mins to an hour. I book my calendar so that it is possible. I may nap on the couch, stare out a window, rest my eyes while meditating and just breathe. I have done this consistently for years. I always set a timer.
I hope you are crafting your own rest practices and slowly embracing this rest pilgramage. It will not happen overnight. It is an ethos, a way of life and I am grateful you are here on this page. Our collective napping and radical resting will change the world. Keep resisting.
