I have the habit of taking a nap at noon . If i don't i would feel very sleepy in the afternoon and can't focus on working . But i've noticed that still many people don't take a nap and they feel quite energy . How do you refresh yourselves if you feel sleepy?

I do take a nap in the after noon actually. I had this habit of going to sleep right after my lunch but 2 years into it and I got a tyre around my waist. It took another one year to excercise to get back the normal shape. Now I take a nap around 4 in the afternoon and get up around 5. Frankly I do not feel like getting up but have to hi hi If i am visiting somebody or doing some chores and I have to stay awake, it is always better tokeep splashing cold water on face and if that doesnt help, drinking a strong tea or coffee helps.

It's true that sleep right after lunch or dinner will make people fat . I usually take a nap about 1 pm and get up about 2 pm and get ready to work .

People abroad have their dinner early by 6 or 7 know? I have seen in movies and heard about that from friends who reside abroad. It is a good habit to go to bed after 2-3hours of eating. That way the food is digested more than half. But here we have dinner very late.Nowadays it is as late as 10 to 10.30...I generally wait for another 1 to 1 1/2 hr before getting on to bed...Here it gets late because we wiat for all teh family memberes to dine together...

We have our lunch just about 12 in the noon and have our supper about 6 pm in the evening.

I don't like to take a nap in the afternoon. However sometimes when I am feeling very sleepy, I tend to fall asleep during the day. Sometimes it refreshes me and sometimes it makes my body feel tired or sleepy.

I just formed this habit of taking a nap in the nood since i was very young . Therefore it's hard for me to live without a nap in my daily life.

Sometimes I like taking naps but most of the time I dont want to take a nap because it usally screws up my sleeping schedule. I only take a nap a few times a week if im really tired and try to take it before 6 pm like to take it around 3 pm or 5 at the latest. Even though when I was a kid I use to love taking naps especially when I was in highschool pretty much use to take a nap everyday after school lol.
