I usually end up taking a nap each day. I don`t know if I`m bored or tired or a little of both. I was wondering how many others take naps.

I don't know if it is an "age thing" or if it is just because I'm worn out after my work week. My fridays and saturdays are usually anywhere from 10-12 hour days, and I'm usually exhausted. I take a nap every sunday afternoon and usually fall asleep on monday afternoons also. My husband does also, but he has to get up at 4:15a.m. to go to work, so I'd be falling asleep in the afternoon too!

thanks for your response. I would be tired to after those 10 or 12 hour days. my husband is always on the go and never takes a nap. I don`t know how he does it.

I take naps very often and sometimes it's quite long ones, i have sleeping disorders and often get insomnia and don't sleep much at the nights, strange that I end up getting better and deeper sleep when i take long naps in the daytime to compensate for the lack of night sleep. I don't see any problem with that, I can manage my sleeping hours one way or the other to get my rest either it is at night or at daytime I just kind of get some sleep whenever my time allow it and I feel like it.

No, and i think i have never take a nap in my life, i just don't like it because i consider that unnecesary, and lots of news says that that is bad after eating.

I take naps every once in a while. Yesterday I ended up taking one at 7:30PM until about 9 and it messed up my sleep cycle a little bit. I couldn't fall asleep until after 2AM. It was not fun getting up for class this morning.

I don't take many naps; it only happens to me when I am completely wasted and I can't do anything else but fall asleep; I also take naps when I'm sick, have a head ache or something alike, because otherwise I think it's a waste of the day's sunlight to just sit somewhere and sleep the time off.

I think when your daughter takes a nap is a good time for you to take a nap. this way everything is quiet and you both get some rest. thanks for your response.

I never take a nap no matter what time I do, or how tired I am. If you take pressure pills though, that will make you tired for naps.

At one time I was taking naps but I don't anymore, I find that at a certain time every evening that I'm sleepy, and once that happens it is all over for me, I might as well just climb into the bed...SS
