Snooze You







I myself am amazed by how fast I can fall into sleep. I can lie down and after a few minutes, I will be snoring away. Well, yeah I snore. I can actually snore like an out of tuned orchestra. My nanay would always tease me about it the morning after. During our company outing last summer, one office mate actually recorded my snore on my drunken sleep. You bastard! Anyways, I know that you will agree with me when I say that sleep is such a blessing of life. An adult life can really be so intricate. We have a lot of things to do. We can’t be lame and sleep all day. I actually feel weird and stubborn every time I over sleep. It feels like significant time is wasted. But seeing it on a healthy point of view, we need sleep. I need not deprive myself of it.

Sleep is necessary to repair the damages our body system encountered all throughout the day. Specifically, cell regeneration takes place during sleep time. This is actually the source of the belief for the famous “Beauty Rest”. Concentration can also be derived from a good sleep. I know you can remember that one night of partying and drinking with a morning after of weak and malfunctioning body system.

Jollibee Foods Corp. is just one of the companies I know who sees the benefits of snooze time. They implement an hour of lights off sleeping time after lunch for all of their corporate offices. This is one good office routine which can level up the concentration of employees. After lunch, it is really nice to take a little snooze. This is because carbohydrate can really induce “sleep triggers”. Another reason can also be associated to the fast pace of eating our lunch. The body will need to slow down to digest the food leading to sleepy feeling. In our office, we often put the names of people taking some nap time after lunch. We tag it as “snooze bags” in out White board of Shame. Ha Ha Ha, just some “thingnamajing “ to spice up office life.

Sleep is scarce (at least for me)!! There are days I don't sleep at all. If I have a day of rest, I sleep all day. It could have been better if a day is more than 24 hours. Huhu.
