Who else takes naps? do you feel guilty when you do? I don't take a nap everyday but when I get less than the regular amount of sleep at night I know I need I feel like I have to take a nap to function for the rest of the day!

Other countries have naps built into their culture but I feel guilty when I need a nap sometimes but I feel better afterwards!

NO no no never feel guilty for taking a nap. I will take one sometimes at around 2 pm till 3 pm. Some weeks I am fine and don't feel the need for a nap but certain times of the month I oh so need one. And I feel so refreshed after. Too long of a nap will make me feel sluggish and still tired.

Naps are healthy. It is listening to your body. If a person is able to take a nap and refresh themselves then I say "Go for it" Smile Smile Smile

I just woke up and dreamed I was on vacation, riding a horse in a lesson, my phone dropped and fell apart and I was trying to figure out how to get it while on the horse by myself but figured out how to get the horse to sit for me...haha.....galloped on the horse. ...funny dream must symbolize how I want to feel free.

LOL Kildare!! Tennis I think you need a new phone or maybe a horse as Angel has said. However dont feel guilty taking naps..to tell the truth I nap A LOT on weekends. Our bodies need the refreshment. I really dont like that I work 8hrs a day during the week b/c I so want to take a nap during the week, but by the time I get home, eat, shower, its already 9:00. Just think, when we were young we hated to take a nap now we wish we could nap all day
