I went in and laid down for a nap and ended up sleeping for two hours. My mom always said 30 minutes to an hour is a nap anything over that is just sleeping.

Did you nap today?

@jcboy,
For some reason, not today - got busy doing some research online.

Usually, I take a 30 - 45 nap around 4 p.m. - then I can stay up until midnight.

If I don't, I'm a mess after 10 p.m.

I nap almost every day. A short one refreshes. Longer ones are for when I am just plain tired.

Naps are such fun, it's a pity I deprived myself of them for so many years. I always thought once you got up that was it, and going to bed anytime before bedtime meant you were sick.

A few years back Wally and I started the tradition of the Sunday afternoon nap.

Now that I'm not working, I take a nap almost every day, shortly after eating lunch.

I was actually thinking of you the other day Morgan, when I laid down for a nap. You often mention you or someone in your family taking one. I think it's wonderful.

@Region Philbis,
Yeah, but then you end up getting off at the stop in New Hampshire.

Wally always says if you shake it more than twice you're playing with it.

But that's another subject.

I love naps! I wish I could take one every day, but my schedule won't cooperate.

I can't do 30-45 minute naps, though. Anything less than an hour and a half makes me more tired than I already was.

@Eva,
I rarely nap - except when I'm on vacation. It's because I get plenty of exercise - by walking, and I can still get a good night's sleep. If I don't exercise during the day, and take a nap, I'll stay awake until 3-4 in the morning.

I love naps - but never longer than 30 min - your mom was right jcboy! Smile

When I am really tired, I drink an espresso and nap then. It usually takes about 20 min for the caffeine to kick in, so by the time my nap is over, I am up and running again.

My naps r not necessarily voluntary.
I have fallen asleep in front of my computer or my TV
for more than a few years. That is not good because
sometimes my legs swell below the knee.

Being retired, hours of the day r usually fungible,
unless I gotta go to the airport to go somewhere,
so I can sleep whenever I want.

I had naps before I retired, but maybe I shud keep that secret.
( I never got any complaints. Door locks r worth a lot. )

My brain has an automatic shut off system. If I have nothing to do, and don't feel like reading, I find myself sleeping for a short time. However, to be consciously aware of a nap requires the effort to get into a reclining position, or at least a comfortable seated position. Now I'm all confused as to whether I truly nap?

Awakening from mid-day sleep, gives me the illusion of having had two days, rather than one, since my brain being empty of thoughts on awakening, affords the same new thoughts, that I forgot to think about yesterday, or earlier. Better yet, awakening from a mid-day sleep, I think I might be feeling how Lazarus felt upon awakening from death. In every nap there's a silver lining.

Unfortunately, I don't have two sisters by my side to get me coffee.

Last nite I fell asleep at my computer, for several hours.

I dunno if that counts as a nap or not.

Antonio takes his nap the same time everyday, and its kind of funny because when the dogs see him go into his room all three of them get up and head to their beds to nap.
