    I get sleep-related migraines, so I don't nap. They're very refreshing, and I'd love to be able to do so often, but if I sleep too little or too long, I've shot the rest of my day. I do tend to fall asleep on the bus sometimes, but I'm never out long enough for it to be beneficial.

    I have this skill! I take 20 minute naps. Often, they serve as life-savers. I love it. Somehow, my body knows when to wake up and it's usually in 20 minute increments. If I go much past 30-40 minutes though, it can lead to feeling MORE tired instead of less as intended. So, longer naps are for weekends where they are justified. 20 minute naps on a really long work day could make the difference between a great energetic presentation and my "I want to go home now" face. Better all around post-nap.

    I like to nap during the train commute (around 30 minutes each way) to university. At home, it's harder, but I generally can do it if I've been very active (esp. after cycling training). I usually don't feel bad after a nap.

    Also, it depends on the time of year. From March to November, when it's warm/hot outside at 1 PM, it's sometimes natural to feel like napping. During the winter, not so much.

    Naps are the best. I wish I could take one every day.

    This is what I think of as well, because learning of the European (more Spanish, I suppose, but as it is), Spanish traditional way of going through the day... it just makes so much damn sense and feels good.

    I've seen numerous studies as to how a midday nap (of a certain length) increases productivity by a large percentage, and frankly it simply assists in recharging.

    Mmm, a spiced hot drink after napping on a cold day.

    I would rather sacrifice 30 min of my lunch break to sleep than go an entire day half assed. I nap everyday. This way I function at full capacity in increments on surprisingly little sleep.

    Goes like this. Wake up (6am), morning day. Lunch nap (12 to 12:30), second work day. Meal break (5:00 to 5:30), school day (5:30 to 10:10pm). After 10 is my personal day. Usually to bed around midnight to 1am. Then back at it at six am.

    I take sleep, when I get it, very seriously and get pissy with anyone who fucks with it.

    I keep a pillow and blanket in the last drawer of my filing cabinet at work for precisely this purpose.
