I dont know why, but especially on Saturdays and Sundays, i take a nap whether or not i want it - it comes so naturally, it's like its been programmed into me - it's sometimes annoying, especially if i had planned to do something else. Most of the times though, its relaxing and a good rest to the mind and eyes. Do you take naps in the afternoon?

I do take naps in the afternoon. I always sleep late at night so i have to nap in the afternoon. Its more relaxing and healthier.

Yes i take naps in the afternoon.It helps me to relax my mind.During exam times i sleep for five to ten minutes in the afternoon.It makes me fresh to study more actively.During saturdays and sundays i sleep for one hour.I feel very fresh and relaxed.Sometimes i don't take naps in the afternoon if i have work to do.

Thanks for sharing. That's great! I heard it helps students to concentrate well, about 9 mins. It never works for me though - mine goes well over 10 mins. Happy mylotting

I work from home and I get up early so I do take a nap in the afternoon. It's either an hour or half an hour. No alarm clock needed as for afternoon naps my body just automatically wakes up the longest after an hour's nap.

I love taking an afternoon nap! Espacially on the weekends because it's not possible for me during the week. It's nice to have a coup,e of days with no timelines or schedules. I feel very rested when I nap. I also read that it reduces the risk of heartattack.

I take naps in the afternoon. I hear that it is good, scientifically proved. I also heard that taking naps in noon will not affect your sleep in night. Now, I take a nap everyday so that I would be able to stay awake all day. I usually sleep very late because of work. That is why.

I will never sleep in the afternoon. I am getting only the sunday as the only holiday and therefore i never want to waste that by sleeping.

Hello! During my service career I had no time to sleep in the afternoon.But after my retirement I have enough time to take rest for about an hour or so in the afternoon.However it is not regular feature with me.If I have some works outside I may not sleep.But It is good for every individual to have afternoon nap to keep the body and mind fit.thanx.

I am not regularly sleeping in the afternoon, but sometimes when I am tired and have nothing important to do I may sleep for an hour. I think it refreshes our mind and also energizes us when we wake up. If you are waking up early in the morning and don't get 7-8 hours sleep than you should sleep for an hour if possible.

I am like you. i tend to take a short, sweet, refreshing nap on holidays, that is, on Sundays. On working days i cannot for obvious reason. On Sundays, it feels lovely after the day's chores and a good square meal.
