    So Refreshing

    I don't have the good fortune to take naps all the time, not because I'm so busy, but because it's usually so hard for me to actually close my eyes and rest a bit. I feel like I'm missing life if I take a break for a second.  Whenever I do attempt a nap, I end up lying in that...

    The 20 Minute Catnap

    I love naps but in my experience is that if I nap too long it will make me feel even more tired when I get up.  A timed 20 minute catnap is the perfect nap for me.  I feel so refreshed when i lay down for 20 minutes.  I usually don't take naps because I sleep so much when I am...

    Naps...Yay!!!

    I am an individual who could go for a nap daily.  I love to get out and about and shop, play games, but somewhere during the day, I like to just close my eyes and relax.  Daydream and enjoy the piece.

    There is nothing better than a really good, restful afternoon nap with a cool pillow and a warm blanket.  I could go for one right now.

    Drifting Off

    Middle-aged, sleep-deprived, so naps are essential.Except once I went for a nap and three months later realised it was clinical depression.

    A Fave Hobby

    I work full-time, go to school full-time, socialize almost full-time, spend  quality time with family... definitely full-time... So whenever I can, I steal naps. Then I feel refreshed afterwards!

    I Need Them!

    I have to be up at 5am for work so I often need a little nap when I've finished just to revitilise myself! The only problem is that when I have a nap I tend to nap too long, then I can't sleep at night!

    I don't know what it is,

    but squeezing in a nap whenever I can is so refreshing to me. sleeping and resting relaxes me and clears my mind. Almost like a reset button! Naps are best when I have a busy day and have time to just lay down, unwind and be at peace for a bit! I am a huge fan of naps :)
