Nap In Your Car Like A Pro
My dad naps in his truck almost every day during his lunch break. He claims that he gets his best sleep in his driver’s seat but I was skeptical. Like father, like daughter, I would try napping during my lunch break when I was tired, but I never was comfortable enough to fall asleep, so I researched ways to get the best sleep in your car. I tried out a few of the internet’s suggestions to see if I could achieve the level of sleep my dad was able to achieve.
Sleeping in your car is not a new idea. Many car manufacturers used to brag about how easy it was for whole families to sleep in their cars. Modern cars are made to be compact because car camping doesn’t have the same appeal but what happens when you want a short nap?
The Packing List:
Depending on how long you plan on sleeping, you will need different things. If you are taking a short road trip or just taking a good nap, here are the things you will want to bring:
2) One large, heavy blanket to lay underneath you
3) Two or Three blankets, varying in weight
This is just the bare minimum for a small slumber. If you are planning on sleeping in your car during a road trip there are other things you will need to bring along.
Now on to the actual nap. My dad likes to nap in his parking lot at work, but that doesn’t work for me at a car dealership. To successfully nap in your car the location needs to be quiet and without a lot of foot traffic. You should also let someone you know where you are just in case you forget to set your alarm.
