...well, maybe you aren't at the moment, but what are your thoughts on taking naps? Do you take naps regularly, rarely, or never?

I took a nap for the first time in quite a long while this afternoon, and it was longer than I wanted it to be for (about 90 minutes), and it inspired me to create this topic

After napping, do you expect to feel awake once when you wake up from a nap? And does napping help you feel more energized?

I don't usually take naps unless I'm super super tired. So maybe 2 times a week. I think taking naps is kind of a waste of time, unless you're actually exhausted..

I don't tend to sleep as much as my body is probably wanting me to. I don't want to go to bed too early so I stay up quite late and pay for it on weekdays. On the way home, I'll just be thinking 'please let me nap', but usually I can't drift off in daylight so naps are rare for me unfortunately.

Napping is over-rated. Who has time? Just sleep in and your days of constant napping (AKA, wasting time!) are over!! :D

Unless I'm sick, I've never really liked taking naps. I've always found that having a nap actually makes me feel more groggy throughout the day than energized, which is why I'd rather just go to bed a little earlier than take a nap.

I used to take lots of naps but it made me even more tired than without taking naps. So when I feel sleepy I just go sleeping earlier now.

I can't survive staying awake the entire day without taking a nap sometime during midday or afternoon, at least an hour and a half nap. Especially if I had to wake up really early for any reason. If I don't take a nap then I'll sleep early and wake up in the middle of the night, it will throw my sleeping pattern off.

If I've been run down by a hard day at school, if I haven't gotten a great deal of sleep the previous night, or if I'm afflicted with an illness, I'll most likely have a nap.

If I don't meet any of these conditions, it's impossible for me to lay down for a few minutes without feeling the need to pace around or get up.

I take them whenever I want, and that's practically every afternoon if school's dismiss early.

I am real life snorlax after all.

I take naps if I haven't slept enough the night before. Like today. Was at work until 11:30pm last night, came home, had to take a bath (shower is not working atm) and eventually went to bed at 2am. Had to get up at 5am to leave at 6am (in 20min) to be at work around 6:15... I start at 7am, but it's the latest my dad can get me there because he works at 7am, too lol and his work is wayyy on the othhherrr side of town so he has to factor in his own travel time.

So I'll probably take a nap tonight, in all honesty, plus go to bed early.

I don't like napping, though. It shocks my stomach into feeling really, really disgusting. Can't eat and stuff; it's like my tummy is "shut down" and doesn't wake up until well after the fact so I try to avoid that. Plus, it startles my heart, too, and just overall makes me feel like crap instead of the nice&refreshed.

I wasn't a huge nap person until just recently, when my horrid sleep schedule started catching up to me.(which is sleeping around 3 am and waking up at 6:30). Now I have started napping daily, however very short naps usually around an hour.

Despite that I love my sleep to death, I don't take naps unless I'm bored to death, which doesn't happen a lot.

I don't nap ever. The closest I've come to it in the last four or so months was when I had a really high fever and was drifting in and out of consciousness for a while.

Naps usually break my sleeping cycle, and 7 hours per day is enough sleep for me. I can't sleep longer, but I can sleep shorter...

I hardly take naps. Whenever I do, I usually end up feeling more tired than I did before. The only time I don't feel like that after a nap is when I'm sick.

I take a nap every day at around 4-5 in the afternoon. I need one when I get home from work, and it keeps me going for another few hours when I wake up. They usually last exactly an hour and a half because I'll play an episode of MST3K in the background and I always wake up at the end because I hate the ending music.

Naps are for old people, haha. That's what my mom always used to say. I never take naps unless I'm unbelievably tired from a day of working outside with surveyors or something. If I go to bed too early into the day, I always wake up at like 11pm or 12am.

Naps are a good way to regain focus after spending some time awake, IMO. I take naps whenever I get the chance, and those last around half an hour to an hour.

I like naps. They're awesome. d("d)

I don't have the opportunity to take them very often these days; by the time I get home it's too late to nap if I want to get to bed at a decent time. The only days I consistently nap are my days off... sometimes. All depends, really.

I will usually only nap if Im really tired during the day, which usually happens either if I didnt sleep well at night, or had to get up really early. I usually can go without one.
