The Art of Napping

I think I use sleep as a buffer. I’ve been doing it since college–and that was decades ago. It’s better than a lot of other things one can do in that is relatively self limiting (that is, it’s hard to really overdo it)–and it’s mostly refreshing. I think I tend to push myself to do more and more things otherwise. And I don’t feel I can function that well when I am overloaded–which happens fairly easily–because I am sensitive and process a lot in a short amount of time. Anyway, it’s not necessarily a problem, except that I am not accomplishing as much as I’d like to and I also wonder whether I am hiding something from myself….Any suggestions for what I can do to see this differently? ( And what am I buffering? Maybe feelings of loneliness…and criticizing myself for not being all I could have been….)
