I am the expert of napping. I can nap anywhere, anytime. It's one of my talents. Even my cat is jealous of my skills.....ha..ha ...kidding:)))

But yes , when I am having a heavy lunch , which is very rare , if I feel sleepy ..........then I take a deliberate cat nap ... I'm then in a semi-conscious state - not sound asleep but not fully awake. I can ease out of this wonderful place without a jarring effect. And when I emerge from my catnap, some 20 minutes later, I feel so good ti do my job much more effectively

When I sleep under normal circumstances, my brain cycles go through several different stages of planning for tomorrow . I drift from one stage of sleep to another - from light sleep to deeper sleep

So, the key to napping is to not fall into the deeper stages of sleep. That's why a 15 to 30 minute nap is recommended. Napping more than that, and you'll find yourself waking up cranky or groggy.

The good old catnap has new name, like "The Power Nap"......... and ...more

No Anu, I do not have this kind of a habit. I just sleep for duration of 5 to 6 hours only in the night after a day's busy and hectic schedule, which gives a kind of a satisfaction to call it a day, everyday....!

No I don't take. A nap in between will spoil my mood to work.

No.. I do not like to take nap in day time.. Of course, if I do not get enough sleep in the night, I do get drowsy.. but nap ? no.. I still avoid.
