A lot of cultures take afternoon naps or siestas. Just do not sleep too long, and it will refresh you.

Before I did not like sleeping after lunch because I had this concept that I will miss alot if I sleep. But when I had a kid I then started sleeping after lunch because I sleep together with my son. Now I think sleeping in the afternoon rejuvinates me thus I get to the alot more things when I wake up after my afternoon nap.

I usually take a nap after lunch, but not directly, because I love to surf on the Internet for a little while before taking the short nap. A nap is a must for me. Otherwise I would feel very sleepy and tired for my afternoon work.

No i don't like to sleep after lunch because i have to go again office after taking lunch. But its doesn't mean that i hate to sleep after lunch. I have tried for sometime to sleep after taking lunch but then i realize that its quite difficult to wake up for go back to office.

I had a habit of falling alseep in the sun during lunch hour and found the best way to stop this habit, was a brisk walk before eating and right after. It's gets your blood to circulate better

You need some kind of vitamins to perk you up to keep you going some what through the day. Sounds like you don't have much energy. You need something to give you and energy boost. But something healthy to give you that extra boost. Fruits and vegetables help with energy and vitamins to.

I am very much fond of this. After lunch and done washing everything, a little rest then i go to sleep. It happens everyday and sometimes i oversleep that i am lazy to get up even i am already awake. I tried to sleep again and when i wake up it is already evening and time to eat dinner too, like you.

hi,i often have a sleeping after lunch, we should be work during daytime,only have one hours for lunch andd have a rest,so i always use fifteen minutes for lunch, and forty minutes for sleeping,it isn't a long time, but it is better for having a good energy for the afternoon working hours. this is a good habit.

I don't have this habit. I prefer to take advantage of this time to do something else rather than having a sleep. As I need to sleep for a long time. A short time sleep isn't enough for me:) If I really have a rest after lunch, usually it means I don't feel well. I love China

I didn't have this habit before but I just always feel tired lately and want to fall asleep afternoon, I try not to though because I don't want to screw up my normal sleeping time so I can still fall asleep at night and sleep early.

I often get up after 10 o'clock, so I don't have a long sleep after lunch. If I have a sleep after lunch, I have to sleep over 5 hours, then it is supper time. so I have no enough time to do many things. btw, it is a good habit to have a sleep after lunch, but it should be in 2 hours.

It is linked to what you eat. And if you don't exercise you body will be hibernating all the time. It does that a little bit to my husband, the reason of all that is that the blood goes mainly in your stomach to help the digestion, so no exercises right after a meal, wait an hour at least.

Before, I don't sleep after lunch, now I think because I'm getting older, I get sleepy after taking my lunch. I usually sleep for an hour before I go back to work. It refreshes my mind and makes me feel energized. Ample sleep is good for your health as they say.
