Do You Take Naps?

Napping is not just for the little people under three-years-old. Nope; it is good for everyone. A 30-minute snooze can reduce stress and might even make you more productive. Though I rarely have a chance to lie down in the afternoon and take a power nap, I would love to. How about you . . .

I nap on the weekends haha. If I do during the week, i can't get to sleep for work the next day!!!! But oh, how glorious it is, when on a Saturday afternoon, I lie down on the couch for a nice little slumber! I always wake up in SUCH a good mood!!!!

I love naps! I usually take one or two a week. And usually one on Saturday afternoons.

I sleep on the train. It's not a real proper sleep though because of all your surroundings and you're always got one eye open to make sure you don't miss your stop! I always feel more tired afterwards. Like I really could use a proper rest.

There's no way I could nap during the week. I'd love to work at a job that had a hammock room for naps!! But me and the SO always take Saturday and Sunday afternoon naps. They're my favorite part of the weekend I think.

I take naps once in awhile but I noticed that it either goes one way or the other for me. Sometimes I feel replenished other times I feel drained. But overall a nap really helps me.

I was just telling myself that I need to take a nap as soon as I get home ( I got very little sleep last night). In college yes almost everyone I knew napped!! But now that I work the 8-5 shift and try to go to the gym as much as possible, napping is rare. If I need it, I do it...but if I don't need it and I still take a nap I can NEVER fall asleep at night! And then I feel like I need a nap the next day! LOL! So, to make a long story short...I nap only when my body says I need one :) ~JO~

I have to be in the mood for a nap. But 30 minutes doesn't do it for me. It usually makes me worse. My body tells me it wants to sleep more because the 30 minutes is just a tease! Lol.

Ah yes im a current university student who loves to nap. Had a couple of very early days this week, so will probably end up having a nap this afternoon. I'm also prone to falling asleep in a warm class when we have a lecturer with a soothing voice- did so yesterday and it was a problem as it was a very important guest lecturer and I felt very very bad!

I usually can't nap (a lot of times I want to but I physically can't) The only times I nap are when I lack sleep for a couple of days in a row and then I need a nap for the next couple of days along with at least 8 hours at night to get back to normal. The last time I was like this was a week ago during midterms.

I nap only on Sundays. I would love to nap everyday; I definitely love my sleep, but there just isn't enough hours in the day.

I wish I cold nap every day! But can only squeeze one in on the weekends and i have to convince my kids to take on too. they sure are resistant to the idea.

Very rarely, if I am sick I do. I cannot nap, if I do, I cannot fall asleep at night. I do love the rare ones my husband occasionally convinces me to take, he naps nearly everyday though!
