Wake Up, It's Nap Time!

HERE is an article about how naps are bad and make you even sleepier.

Here it is:

I don’t take naps, but I thought I should post this for the ones that do…


Hmmm. I’ve noticed that I become groggy when I take a normal nap that long. However, when I nap for a midday WILD, I find that I wake more refreshed, due the the induced REM sleep. I’ll see if I can get a higher success rate if I attempt to WILD between 1 and 2:30. :hmmm:

I only nap when I really need it. My ideal amount of time for a nap is one to two hours depending on need and I never wake up groggy afterwards, I just feel totally refreshed.

I think I’ve only fell asleep during the day once or twice during the day,
but that was on vacation…

My dad says naps make him more tired and he doesn’t understand how I do it. I dunno, I always feel refreshed. Come to think of it, I usually don’t sleep that long in naps anyway so that’s probably it.

That’s completely true, at least for me.

I’ve had naps and after I wake up I feel like I weight 100 pounds more and I’m all sweaty and tired. It’s actually really annoying feeling when you think about it.

But sometimes naps are good for me, too. Many times I get the required amount of sleep and have more energy for the night.

Good post!
