La Siesta

Postby 12102127Mini » Mon Apr 26, 2010 10:33 am

Do you know about ' La Siesta'? The siesta is a traditional daytime sleep of Spain. It is taken in the early afternoon.(about 1 o'clock-4 o'clock).
So we can see some closed stores at this time in Spain. But, it is common to see this sleep habit in other conturies like Greece, Cyprus, Italy, Iran and so on.
The siesta is taken because of high temperature in midday. Also, a drowsiness caused by a heavy meal at lunch is a another factor.
At one time, Siesta was considered a symbol of laziness. So there was a movement to abolish a siesta culture. However, it was turned out that the siesta can increase mental efficiency. It is healthful to have a siesta in daily time.
These days, some companies borrow a idea of siesta and offer a formal nap time to employees. I think this culture suggests us a aesthetics of slowness.
