It really all depends if I have that urge to have that afternoon nap. I have been suffering from a back injury for the last 2.5 years and I will say I am a true insomanic and have already been diagnosed and have tried many many things to get me to sleep at night. (It is a very hard task to do so I don't do it very often). Some afternoons I am in dire need that I have to have a nap and I will lay down for an hour or two. It does help as I only get 2 - 3 hours on a normal night of sleeping. But then I do have those days that I stay up for days on end. Sometimes I find that I sleep better and feel more rested and refreshed if I do have that afternoon nap.

you cannot categorically say it is seen in house wives.housewives may have a afternoon nap as she is quite exhausted during the day and at night also there is no proper sleep as the kids keep on waking her.

How can you expect a housewife not to day sleep we are overworked as it is. A nap is a neccessity. I have a one yr old and an eleven yr old and I am getting prepared for twins in about 4 months. If it weren't for afternoon naps I would never sleep at all. When you are the driver, accountant, cook, housekeeper, sock finder, laundry service, bug trapper, tear wiper, gum from hair remover, stain magician. There is no reason someone who must take on all these roles shouldn't get at least one nap per day if not more.

Hello to you abhaijith! I do not really sleep much during the daytime unless I am sick or when I have been stressed out. Most of the time, what I do is catch a catnap after lunch. It's my way of re-energizing myself. I do not sleep on extended hours during the day. Normally when I do, I would definitely suffer from intense headache and I would also feel so lazy when I wake up.

I don't have a habit of day sleeping and we're not allowed at work. If I slept late and I know I will feel sleepy during the day, I drink coffee to keep me awake.

Only on weekends. I really do rest specially on Saturdays. I'll doze for about 2-3 hours.
