  • I am the same way it is like it'snever long enough and there is nothing worse for me than having to get up before I am done sleeping.

  • I watched a show the other day that said a 20 minute nap was a good thing to do to loose weight too. It is suppose to take away the hungry feeling. I can eat a full meal doze off for not even five minutes and be starving again. Also I am very crabby if I do that.

  • makes me worse,but I love a nap.If I am going to take one,I make sure I get my stuff done,because once,I sat down,I'm down for the count,and the rest of the day is blown.

  • tlc-mom--- I also get a headache sometimes. When I go to sleep at night I am usually ok, but if I wake up in the middle of the night and try t go back to sleep I always get a headache.

  • As long as it isn't more than 20 minutes I feel a lot better. It seems if I get more than that I just want to go to bed.

  • If I end up taking a nap with my daughter in the afternoon, it helps. As long as its no more than 20-30mins. Anymore than that then i might as well sleep the whole night! lol

  • It can go either way. I'm always very groggy for a little while after I wake up..whether it be a nap or after the whole night. But usually after a nap, I'm good to go after about 20 minutes or so.

  • I always feel worse if I take a nap during the day, unless I am sick then I usually feel better. But I usually try my best not to take a nap during the day because I cant sleep at night when I do.
