We usually have lunch at 12:00,with 30 minutes left to have a rest.I used to take a nap during the left time and if seem that even a few minutes deep sleep can keep the whole afternoon fresh and energetic.If there is something disturbed and cannot sleep then I will feel drowsy all afternoon. Do you take a nap at noon?

I don't. I'm sensitive to light and noise, so I can't fall asleep easily at noon, and I find a nap will make me more sleepy in the afternoon. For me, only long sleep can relieve my weariness.

The same circumstance like you from time to time.Sometimes I feel even more sleepy after a short nap.But fortunately.I am good in my sleeping quality.Perhaps even when there occurs an earthquake,I am still falling asleep regardless of the severe noise.

You are terrific to sleep so well under great noise.I will toss and turn even there is only a little noise.

I like meditation,it's comfortable to sit or sleep without thinking anything.

Hi ann, I have one hour for lunch, I would go out with my colleagues for lunch. We would try new places or explore new routes around our office building. I do not like to be cooped up in the office the whole day long so lunch hour is the time to get some fresh air. I have heard taking a nap after lunch is good but make sure you do not lie down immediately on a full stomach or put pressure on your stomach. It could cause indigestion or the food might go a wrong way

Thanks for your advice.Usually I lean back in my chair and have a short rest,so the stomach will not have pressure,and sometimes when I have a nap at the desk then it's unavoidable to burp a lot in the afternoon.So embarrassed!

Yes, I do take naps when I can. I used to think that only lazy people slept during the day, but that was before I had nights when I couldn't sleep well, and before I got old and tired! I can usually sleep for an hour and feel much better when I wake up.

It seems sleeping will become a trouble when we get old,hard to sleep and easy to wake up.Taking a nap can compensate it.

Yes, it`s very refreshing for me, after i eat at lunch, if i have nothing to do, i usually take a nap for like max. 1 hour, when i wake up i am full of energy, and i like to take a walk.

Take a walk at noon?Here it's hot summer now,what season is it in your place?or you mean a walk in the house or in the office?

When I am tired,maybe I will choose that way to take a break.But sometimes the time is limited and my work is heavy,so I have no time to take a nap at all.And occasionally I feel even a bit more tired after taking a nap after that,but sometimes I refresh myself agasin contrastively.What a contradiction for me!

You feel tired maybe because you have to wake up before getting into deep sleep,so our brain remains sleepy then.

Hi Ann! I love taking naps. I usually take mine late in the afternoon when I'm too tired working. Like you, it helps me feel energetic.

I don't like to sleep or take naps during the day, it sucks the energy right out of me. Gotta keep moving and doing something.
