I do take short nap in the afternoon to make up for my late nights. It does boost my energy after a short nap.

Short nap is anything less than one hour..It could be 15 minutes or 20 minutes.

Yes I do take a nap after lunch. Five to ten minutes is enough for me to bring back my energy. It really help me if you still have works to be done.

Once in a while I will take a power nap around 3pm....15 - 20 minutes refreshes me. I don't always do it because if I'm overly tired I don't want to get back up and end up sleeping for a long time and then don't want to go to sleep at night.

You're welcome! I think if I sleep longer than the 15-20 minutes I wake up more tired than before I took one. I learned this from a few older people and that is exactly how long they rest each day, enough to doze off and that is it.

I read from a material about eyestraight .It said that you musy not sit over half an hour in front of the computer.It also said you can relax your eyes by looking far away ,for example look the tree below, the building across the street and so on.It`s mabe helpful to you reduce your eye stress!

I would sleep in the daytime on weekends but mostly on Sundays from around 2 to 4. Since i'm in highscool I have to wake up early Monday-Friday and I lose alot of extra sleep. That's why I sleep Sunday afternoons. When I wake up from my nap I feel like I was never tired. To keep me awake throughout the day at school I chew a mint flavored gum. I think the smell of it just wakes you up. Candy canes are good to. My mom eats them when we travel and she has to drive for a long period of time. They keep her up and energetic.

No,i dont sleep in the day time.I think feeling sleepy in the after noon after taking food is natural.Sleeping in the afternoon is not good for our health.

I do sleep sometimes during daytime. It usually happens after school, when my brain is exhausted and needs a bit of rest. I turn on TV, switch to music channel and lay down on the coach. I sleep like that for like half an hour, sometimes for an hour. So you can't call it a sleep, it's rather a nap.

Hi there... I love afternoon nap... it makes me feel alive the whole day. but it makes me hard sometimes to fall asleep at night time. Afternoon naps makes me feel and look good whole day, so i love it.

I also sleep during daytime especially when I'm on a vacation. But during busy days I would keep myself awake by taking enervon or vitamin supplements that would give you energy for the rest of the day. By then it would it would help you to be alert and energized for the day.

Sometimes I like to sleep in the daytime. It would be because I had a bad sleep at night time. Then I would need to make up for the time lost by taking a nap in the afternoon. I usually sleep for around 30 minutes to an hour.

Sometimes, if I'm really, really fatigued and the daytime has been a lazy one (not much to do, just moping round the house etc.), my body will ease itself into a gentle nap for about 10 to 20 minutes. It is such a refreshing and relaxing feeling waking up from such an unforced nap
