On Wednesday, Mark took Lee’s advice to its “logical conclusion”, adding: “Never sit down when you can lie down”. The photo showed Mark laying down with his eyes closed in “A New Hope,” in “The Empire Strikes Back,” and when he was lying on the ground at a recent fan convention. The photos read: “Napping since 1977”.

A user retweeted a meme of Luke Skywalker, calling him the Hide-and-Seek champion from 1983 to 2015, referencing the decades-long time span between the original trilogy and the sequel trilogy. After George Lucas sold Lucasfilm to Disney in 2012, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill reprized their respective roles for “The Force Awakens” in 2015.

“This one is good for your back,” another fan commented, showing a photo of Luke hanging upside down at the Wampa Cave in Hoth. While in theory, hanging upside down may have temporary benefits for back pain, Healthline cautions that more studies are needed to confirm whether hanging upside down provides lasting health benefits.
As children, we fight tooth and nail to avoid a nap. As adults, we would commit major crimes just to grab 30 minutes of sleep. The fight is real.

Hopefully Mark stays on Twitter providing great advice to his fans for a long time to come. Although many users have threatened to quit the social media service since Elon Musk reached an agreement with Twitter’s board of directors to buy the company, Mark isn’t going anywhere.
“No matter who owns it, no matter who works on it, I’m sticking around to engage with you, listen to diverse opinions, and keep fighting the good fight! (also, to keep posting the insane tweets I’m known for) he wrote, adding the hashtag #TwitterTenacity.
