Do you take naps?

Too often adults push their bodies to the limit. Often times your body would do better if you took a nap. Napping can rejuvinate.

I have a 2-year-old. I'm lucky if I get to sleep at night.

Me Skydiving - This is me blowing a kiss at the camera while falling from the sky...
I'm pretty sure I'm gonna be taking a nap when I get home from work today... mhmmm... My ferret loves it when I take naps because I let him sleep next to me - he doesn't have a fellow ferret to keep him company, so he likes having something to cuddle with :) (By the way, if a random picture of me skydiving pops up, please ignore it... myLot is being... interesting.)

My Cute Little Ferret - This is Junior, my ferret :)
Here's the picture I was TRYING to put up! The skydiving one was supposed to go under your post about hot air balloon rides. It didn't work, obviously.

I doubt I will ever jump from a plane. But a ferret may be a pet I would get, that is if I have no cats. My cats would probably not like it.

Christmas Kitten - She's staying with her mommy until Christmas Eve :) She's a chocolate point ragdoll kitten.
I have a cat right now (soon to be two because I'm getting my sister a kitten for Christmas) - he acts annoyed with the ferret sometimes, but other times he'll actually play with him! My pets are very "close"... haha... I catch the dog and cat cuddling - and I've even caught my cat petting my dog several times before!

Asleep - photo of a sleeping kitten
I dont make a point of it but lately I have been falling asleep while watching TV. My average night's sleep is 5 hours. I hate sleeping because it's a waste of time. Do you realize if one get's the 8 hours of sleep a day that is recommended he has passed one third of his life with his eyes closed. I hate sleeping......

I like to go to bed at around 11 and wake at 7:30-8. If I get less I am drained.

I am not sure, but if you think about it, your heart is overworked and stressed and that isn't a good thing

I would never be able to take a nap that late in the day. I suppose if you are staying up later that would be okay. But I am up early in the morning and napping late in the day would through me way off.

I'd love to be able to take a nap, but I just can't do it. When I nap, it turns into a full blown sleep. I just can't wake up. I'll mean to just sleep for a few minutes and wake up 4 or 5 hours later and even then I have trouble waking up.

Sounds like my daughter. She would sleep all day if she were to lay down for a 30 minute nap.

I usually only nap when I am not feeling well. If I have a cold or a severe headache it helps to close my eyes for a little while, if only to close my eyes and lay down. I try not to sleep longer than 30 minutes, otherwise I have that nap foggy-headedness going on.

I always feel so much better after a nap of about 20 minutes. I really think it's great for you body. I try to take a short nap each day whenever I can. I think anything longer interferes with my ability to sleep at night.

When I worked at the local high school my kids were home before me. I got home at 3:45. I sat on the couch, turned on Oprah, watched the first 15 minutes of it, fell asleep for 20 and woke to watch the last of the show. I called it my Oprah Power Nap.

I couldn't survive without my naps. My 6 yr old gets up between 4.30 and 5 in the morning and by 2pm I am knackered. I try to grab a 20 minute siesta which keeps me going til bedtime!

When my twins were babies I took a nap whenever they did. It was the only time I could sleep.
