All of us, usually felt sleepy after the lunch in the afternoon right? for me, everyday I felt I need to take a nap so that I feel good. Taking a nap in the afternoon is good for me. How about you?

Since I go to sleep very late at night and get up early in the morning. So lately I will have a nap in the afternoon so that I will feel refreshed in the afternoon and work better. I love China

It is better for you to take a nap you in the afternoon to recharge you from lacking of sleep the other night. Well, thanks for sharing your comments with us and have a nice day ahead Godbless

Taking naps during afternoon is really energizing. I love taking them should time permits. You get a lot of energy afterwards. The only problem I get when sleeping during afternoons is I get so energized that I have difficulty sleeping early at night. So if I know that I have to sleep early at night, I decline to having afternoon naps no matter how tempting it is. One cannot have the best of both worlds.

Yes, I do it from time to time, especially in the weekends (during the weeks I usually do not have time for it), and it is great. I wish I could do it every day!

I think , all people especially those who are working and have a job dont have any time to take a nap in weekdays but for sure as what you've said, most probably in the weekends you have all the time to take a nap . Well, thanks for sharing your comments with us and have a nice day ahead Godbless

I take a nap in the afternoon when I feel sleepy. My son and I take a nap together in the afternoon.

when we are full in the lunch, we felt that we are sleepy and our instructor say's it is good to take a nap about 20-30 minutes but when I take a nap in the afternoon that 20-30 minutes is not okay for me, because I felt sleepy again , so better take a nap about 2 hours or one that makes me okay.

There are times when i do take a nap during the afternoon. However, it really only happens when I'm sick, didn't get a lot of sleep and am really exhausted, or something to that effect. Usually, I don't take a nap. It's really not something that I do a lot, or like to do a lot.

I do not take naps ever, as I would tend to sleep off the rest of the day, causing me to lose out on so many responsibilities. I have tried a couple times and then I get a headache after. Although I am always tired after twelve noon, I try to take breaks and fresh air to perk me back up. I find that when I lay down at night I get enough sleep and then I am ready for the next day.

if you are taking a nap you should think that it might cause us sometimes a headache why? because we are forcing to weake up even our body is still sleepy. much better to didn't take a nap after all to avoid this. Well, thanks for sharing your comments with us and have a nice day ahead Godbless

Well, most of the European countries have a siesta time where everyone has time to go and have a nap...so they must have found some benefits from it to enable people to do that. I have read that it is natural to have a short nap in the afternoon and helps to refresh you for the rest of the day but I guess for most people it's just not possible, especially if you are working ..can you imagine if every country closed down from 1pm until 2pm so that everyone could have a nap...wouldn't that be nice :o)

Yeah. it is good for the European to have take a nap everyday. maybe it is their own way to give the people a siesta to feel okay when they are working. But for those people who are busy with tier work, they can take a nap during weekends. Well, thanks for sharing your comments with us and have a nice day ahead Godbless
