Well, I am a school going kid - well not a kid now. I am doing my 10th grade and I return from school only at about 5 pm. Now, I am having my exams, so I come at about 1 pm and I take a nap if I am really necessary! I am going to take a nap, bye! How about you??

I have never been much of a nap person to be honest with you. I get my sleep at night and that is it. My parents are very fond of telling me that by the time I turned one, I absolutely hated taking naps of any time. The truth be told, it just feels like I am wasting time that could be done for something productive. About the only time if I am taking a nap is if I am ill. I tend to sleep right in and continue to sleep throughout the day. Otherwise, my body has eased into a certain routine. I doubt it should be disrupted, as it would throw my entire day off. So, I rarely if ever take afternoon naps and about the only time is wqhen I am ill.

Only if I am really really tired or sick. As I am just about exhausted today, I plan to take a nap at 4 today...until my next class at 5. which is a relief since I work until midnight and have to get up at 7:30 tomorrow. A few extra hours would do me good but Mondays are insane and I only have time for one hour.

I used to take a nap but I then gave up on this idea. I think it's a good thing all the same and it's very relaxing. They say that this can help you become more productive in your work so I guess some employers are really encouraging their employees to take an afternoon nap, this would have been unheard of so many years ago. Good luck with your exams, I'm sure you will do very well if you start taking afternoon naps! Andrew

I am in the working field now, but I do remember when I was back in primary and secondary school, I always took an afternoon nap after returning home from school. In fact, I still like to take afternoon naps whenever I can. I feel naps are good to help me take a rest after a tiring day at school and also to rejuvenate my energy for some evening sports. But unfortunately at the moment, my working hourse are 9am-5.30pm, so no more afternoon naps for me, unless I take a sick leave or I am on holiday. But the good news is, I am on holiday now, so I can take my chance to nap now before holidays are over!

It's always good to have an afternoon nap. But there are times that you cannot do it because you have something to do or you are not in the proper place. We all need a nap as a form of relaxation. Our body needs to relax to be able to coup up with stress as a result of our daily activities.I think it is proper to have some nap even in the morning if your body needs it.
