What's your sexiest season?

I’m winter sexy. 

I get off on skiing waist deep powder;soaking in hot springs; doing yoga in the early morning dark; and wrapping myself around a steaming mug of lemon ginger tea. 

Summer sexy, with my allergies and freckled, sun-sensitive skin, takes a little more effort. 

So in the heat of the day, I strip off my sweaty clothes, turn on the fan, curl up with my bad boy and take a sexy siesta. 

This is particularly helpful if I’ve experienced sexy insomnia the night before.

It’s a round about way of getting enough sleep and according to a recent New York Times article, this isn’t a bad approach.  In his article entitled “Rethinking Sleep” writer David K. Randal writes:

“Rather than helping us get more rest, the tyranny of the eight-hour block reinforces a narrow conception of sleep and how we should approach it.”

He continues, further supporting my sexy siesta/sexy insomnia strategy:

“It seemed that, given a chance to be free of modern life, the body would naturally settle into a split sleep schedule. Subjects grew to like experiencing nighttime in a new way. Once they broke their conception of what form sleep should come in, they looked forward to the time in the middle of the night as a chance for deep thinking of all kinds, whether in the form of self-reflection, getting a jump on the next day or amorous activity.”

Amorous activity.  I love that. 


I know my man never minds waking in the middle of the night to my torso- descending kisses. It just means w
e may need to crawl into the loft mid-day and take a nap.

See how this works? 


Sexy Prods:
Are you winter sexy or summer sexy? Spring or fall?

Do you have a sexy relationship with sleep these days? Tell me about it. If not, be sure and read Randal's article.

P.S. I'm going to a workshop at a super sensuous place next week.  No internet or cell coverage. See you in August.

Thanks for the inspiration, knowing that sleep is sexy whenever it calls me. To sink into it as I would my man's arms or a good book, sleep is what keeps me awake :)

Naps for enlightenment, I love it Madison. I've found that honoring my need to rest by taking a short nap is pure sweetness. Twenty-thirty minutes is optimal.
