First Nap in a Very, Long Time

Today, I took a nap during the afternoon, for about 1 1/2 hours. I was up twice last night coughing, then dozed off back to sleep. Whenever my sleep gets disrupted for some reason or another, I don't have much energy the next day. After taking a nice, long nap, I'm feeling a lot more energized, than before!

Napping messes up my schedule and ends up making me grumpy.

That's why I don't take one very often, it messes up my sleep patterns, but so does coughing.

Really? I also read somewhere that there is a multinational company that gives its employees half an hour everyday afternoon for napping. Dad has always resorted to napping after meals.

@Tina30219 I seldom get a nap, so it's something I might get use to:)

@kobesbuddy Right sometimes you have to when your sleep is interrupted and you need to get some energy back.

@Tina30219 Yes, that's why I needed so extra rest today, to catch up on my sleep.

@Happy2BeMe Thanks, my cough seems to be allergy related. Hopefully, I'll figure out what's bringing it on.

@kobesbuddy I hope so. I know I use to have this chronic cough and it was my blood pressure meds that was doing it. It was annoying to always be coughing.

@Happy2BeMe Which BP medication? I'm taking lisinopril and the cough never goes away for very long.

I got used to taking naps when I was on chemo and did not have much energy. Now I take a nap almost every day.

It's very good for you, to get re-energized each day. Relaxing does away with stress.

I also do the same thing. I woke up so early today. I am pretty sure I will have my power nap later in the afternoon. Then, I am more energetic to do my online teaching at night.

I have problems with taking naps too. Sometimes I can't fall asleep even though I want my body to take a nap. Now I'm able to take a nap in the afternoon. I know it feels good taking a good nap

I love taking power naps, I could feel the difference when I nap around 1 hour during the day. But I avoid taking a nap after 4 pm because I would wake up feeling cranky.
