Can u take ''power naps'' or does it make u feel like crap?!

I don't take any naps ever, I feel like complete crap after waking from a nap! I took a 30 minute nap today (on accident, I fell asleep while my son was napping), and when I woke up I remembered why I never take naps and couldn't tell u when my last nap before that was. I just feel foggy and my body feels worn out and I'm a stinkin zombie, ugh! My sister always brags about how refreshed she feels after a 3o minute ''powenap''! Who here feels great after a nap, and who here is a wierdo like me and gets the way I do after a nap?!

  • If I'm going to nap it means I am either exhausted, sick, or have a migraine. I will not consider it unless there's at least 90 minutes in it for me. Power naps/cat naps ruin me

  • If I can't get at least a three hour just isn't worth it.

  • The only time I nap is when Im sick. Otherwise, I feel sick for the rest of the day.

  • It depends. For me a power nap is about 20 minutes. For my FIL it's 12.5 minutes. If I'm going for a straight nap though it's usually because I've got a migraine I'm trying to sleep off, or I just canNOT keep my eyes open anymore. Then it's at least an hour, usually 2-4 hours.

  • Sometimes I can and sometimes I feel like ass, worse than before I fell asleep.
