    Not So 'powerful'

    A power nap is not powerful at all, for me! 90% of the time I woke up from an afternoon nap I felt more tired than before to the point of not wanting to even move. If I was unlucky enough, I would get a headache.I've tried 3 hours nap, 2 hours, 1 hour, 30 minutes and less than 15...

    I Don't Get It

    Every time I take a nap, I always feel more tired than I was before. Then when I try to go to bed later, it's really difficult to fall asleep... so, what's the point? O___o;
