Do you take naps?

So, do you take naps? I love napping, though I don't get to do it often. when I have a chance I totally take the opportunity to get some shut eye. My husband, though, does not like to nap. He says it makes him feel groggy and puts him in a bad mood when he wakes up from the nap. What about you? Do you like to take naps?

Yes, I do and I enjoy them very much. I don't get to take them as often as I would like. I have a 2 year old daughter who sometimes takes a nap. If it's a late day nap than I am sure to be up late. So, unless I take a nap with her the next day, I think I would be a walking zombie.

I dont think my employer would enjoy giving me time for a nap either. I think a good rest can be of great help though.

When I have a chance I do. I am always tired and fight to stay awake during the day, so when an oprtunity arises I take it too. My son is four now, and does not like to take naps, so I can't take advantage of it anymore.

I'm not looking forward to the time when my son no longer takes naps. That will be a sad day.

I take naps once in a while, more if I could but my kid won't take naps with me so I usually don't. If I feel really tired, I take a nap but that would mean I will have so much energy at night to stay up late. I'm such a night owl (woo woo)... I'm trying not to be one though because I get pimples. So myloting is strictly on day shift now like a 9 to 5 job!

I like sleeping, so I like napping too. But I try to avoid it, because after a nap I feel as if I was unconscious and totally sleepy.

I'm more like your husband, I'm pretty much usless for the rest of the day if I take a nap. I can never wake up properly from them and all I want to do is lay around. I do love to sleep late in the morning though, but if I go back to bed after noon time, I might as well write off the rest of the day.

I love naps! They can be so refreshing. The only thing better than a nap is sleeping late in the morning. But nothing beats a nap in front of a warm cozy fire. Curled up in a warm blanket. Preferably next to the one you love.

I have to agree with your husband. I feel terrible If I take a nap. I feel slugish and drained. It does not relax me, instead it tires me out. Nope I do not nap.

I love the half hour nap after dinner. It,s mandatory!! I still sleep good at night. If I don,t nap I tend to get cranky, hehe

I always find I feel more tired after a short nap so I don't bother. With a 2 year old I dont' get much of a chance to anyway. If she has a nap I like to relax for a bit rather than going to sleep.

That's what my husband says too. But, even short naps I like.

i feel the same way as your husband. Almost every time I fall asleep in the afternoon or evening, I wake up disorientated and groggy. I feel more tired than ever and I feel like I wasted time sleeping. I hate taking naps!

I'd love to be able to take naps. It's not that I don't have the opportunity, it's that I just can't seem to fall asleep during the afternoon or anytime that's not bedtime for me. Even if I'm really tired. I have a really hard time falling asleep during the night too and when I do I'm a really light sleeper. The times I have actually been able to anp a little I always have a hard time waking up and getting going again. Then there's my husband whose middle name is nap. He can fall asleep anywhere in almot any position. Sitting up, crunched up on the loveseat just wherever and whenever no matter what's going on around him. He swears by them and can fall asleep really fast. Sometimes he can nap for just a half an hour and says he feels totally refreshed when he gets up.

I like to take naps but the problem is I have a work. I can't sleep inside the office. So most of the time I just take a sleep at nighttime. Before, before my working days I used to take nap. I feel relax with after taking a nap. It also makes me alert again especially during tough days.
