No I can't sleep during the day and don't really want to yet.....I do have a rest with feet up for half an hour or so after lunch, IF I am home but very often I am out....like to sit outside with a coffee and just ;contemplate', at some stage
In Spain,and many other hotter climate countries,these Nanna Naps are known as Siestas!!! They make perfect sense if you have been raised to have these breaks and do more in the cooler hours of evening.I admit that with my illness and the necessary medication I need to survive,I can easily have a short refreshing sleep at almost ANY time of day if I am relaxed!! I never sleep for long periods anyway,so I have no issue with this way of life,now that I do not work any more!
I day dream about nana naps ….. I have 4 children!
I suspect that when they've all grown up and I can take nana naps in the day, the need to take them will have gone. My dad is 81 and he takes naps, he just dozes off where he happens to be, so he takes papa naps.
Most of my writing and my other paper work is done at night after the kids are in bed. I tend to go on till morning hours somedays- I wouldn't mind a nap during the day following one of my "writing nights"if I get a break. some saturdays I do :-)
Yes, I certainly enjoy a nap around 2 or 3 in the afternoon, especially if I have been working late. It gives me energy to get things done in the evening and doesn't affect my sleep at night.
In summer (I live in Queensland) I regularly take a nana nap or a rest in the hottest part of the day because my bedroom has aircon!
As a Nana, I have earned them, but I was taking them before that. I don't take them every day, but if I've earned one, I never feel guilty about doing so. Besides, even a short liedown in the afternoon is said to be beneficial to one's health.
