If you take a nap during the day, do you feel better or worse afterwards??

I have never been one to take naps during the day. If I do, then it can only be about 10-20 minutes long. If I take a longer nap, then I will wake up feeling worse then I did before it.

Anyone else?

  • Depends on how long the nap is. If it's a short one, not too bad. If it's any longer than 30 min., I feel like poop.

  • My SO can lay down and fall asleep for 1-3 hours and he will just pop right up and be refreshed. I so cannot do that.

  • Need about 2 hours give or take. I feel much better afterward. I can make my day last longer when I do. I need the extra time later in the day. I have homework to do and papers to write and I have a 19 mo that demands attention until her bed time.

  • OR another thing that I can't stand is when I can't keep my eyes open while I'm on the couch, but as soon as I lay down in bed--then I can't go to sleep.

  • The few times I take a nap, I wake up feeling nauseous and just plain crappy. Even just a short nap does that to me.
