How often do you take naps? Are you a daily napper?

Well, lately I've been super exhausted after school so I've just been taking these small naps (3-4 hours in length) and my body has kind of become accustomed to these naps so I'm now considerably a daily napper! Back a couple of weeks ago, I had a close friend suggest I take a nap every now and then and that day, I decided to take a nap for the first time in a while. Now I need them! Naps are so beneficial and they make me feel more productive when I wake up, because it seems like I get to start the day again! How about you? Do you take naps on the regular, do you take naps at all? Are you an often napper?

Oh yeah, we have the same routine. Especially it is getting cold gradually, I love to take some naps after work. Sometimes, I felt so exhausted, and I just want to take a short nap before dinner time. It really helps, refresh my mind, and reboot my energy again. I just hate some people call me while I am taking a nap.

taking routing daily nap is very good for our health. when i was at coollge i did it. but now i work at school as a techer, thus i can't do that anymore. fortunately i work five days a week, thus at saturday and monday i can take a nap. at long holiday i also take nap. taking a cat nap may decrease my headache and tiredness

I do occasionally take naps. I won't take naps all the time, or everyday, but there are some days when I do feel the need to take a nap. Although I do take naps, I'm definitely not a regular napper by all means.

I only take naps when I am tired. I don't take them all that often, because I don't want them to mess up my sleep cycle. I do enjoy them on occasion. They can be quite refreshing when you are in need of some extra sleep.

Hi,there. I have read an article that saying the same thing. Taking a nap can make our brain become refresh and it can make our intelligence increase. Taking a nap 5 minutes has the same influence with sleep 10 or 20 minutes at night which means the longer time given to take a nap can give better effect. Unluckily, I only can do once or twice a week. My routine is too full, so I'm busy in whole day till I cant' do it. This habit makes me feel so tired and being so lazy to do anything at night. What a bad habit I have! Hopefully, I can take a nap more than before.

Yes, nap are really beneficial and necessary. I always have my power naps (5-10 minute ones). It helps me recharge. I need to be so that my work output would always be at its optimum level :)
