Words of Wisdom from The Nap Bishop

I’ve been inspired by The Nap Ministry’s Instagram page lately. It’s an Instagram page dedicated to Black liberation through rest, naps, sleep, dreaming and seeing those acts as reparations and resistance. In the capitalist-patriarchal world we live in, we work and do too much; we must rest just as hard as we work.

2020 has been a difficult time and I wish I could say something profound but I don’t.

So I’m just going to leave you with these words of wisdom from The Nap Bishop:

Rest today.
Find 5 minutes of silence to daydream.
Put something soft next to your skin.
Drink so much water.
Take a nap.
Don’t explain why we are uprising.
They know.
The grief and terror of white supremacy is
rough on our hearts and bodies.
Please rest.
