I don't recall specifically which day I last had a nap, but if I'm sitting here working (at home) and get so drowsy I can no longer concentrate, I'll set the kitchen timer for 25 minutes and take a nap.  It's an incredibly deep sleep, too.  The major problem I have is that both cats decide that's the time to snuggle with me.  lol.  Their loud purring and kneading of paws can be distracting but if I'm drowsy enough, I still end up falling into a deep sleep.  I usually "wake up" just before that timer starts to buzz.  If I take a nap longer than 20 minutes or so, then I feel draggy and more tired; but if I stick to 20 minutes, I feel recharged and refreshed.  I don't know why this is but I'm sure there is a scientific reason behind it.  lol.

About 2 months ago I spent the entire weekend napping, just felt so sleepy and yucky.  A couple days later I woke up with blisters all over my side, it was shingles.  Usually napping makes me feel worse.

I can't remember. I rarely nap, or maybe if I am sick.

Sunday!

I love naps!!!  I try and get one every weekend.  It just seems to give me an extra little boost, and the week ahead seems to go a bit better.

Shingles are no fun.  My brother got them.  My mom insisted that I get the shingles vaccination and luckily my insurance covered it.  It's an expensive shot and a lot of insurances won't cover it.

I don't often nap during the day.  If I do it is because I am sick or maybe bored on a weekend.

I believe the last time I napped was last week. Or maybe the week before.  It just helped me catch up.  I have't slept well for awhile.  Can't say it recharged me.
