    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 Thought I Was The Only One!

    Everyone I know find naps to be refreshing to them, but I hate the feeling of waking up after a nap. Ever since I ceased to be a child, naps just make me feel super tired and weak. Not to mention I wake up feeling super nauseated and often throwing up. Plus, an hour nap for me...

    I'm usually the kind of person

    that doesn't take naps. Compared to everyone in the family, me and my mom are the only ones that don't even take a nap throughout the day due to the fact that we're both light sleepers. About a month ago, I took my first nap in years, lasting only about 30 minutes. It took...

    Ya!

    I know maybe it isn't important, but I really love the logo! The sleeping dog is very cute :) Sometimes I take a nap during day. My naps are usually short and I take it after lunch. I feel so lazy then... Earlier I felt groggy after my naps but now I do not have this feeling...
