need a nap...


I really feel like my energy has been sucked into a
vacuum!

While vegging in front of my laptop a few minutes ago,
 I came across this article from

According to study done at UC Berkley by Professor M. Walker,
parts of your brain need to be cleaned out during sleep.

"It's as though the e-mail inbox in your hippocampus
 is full and, until you sleep and clear out those fact
  e-mails, you're not going to receive any more mail.
It's just going to bounce until you sleep and move it
into another folder."

Okeedokeee...thaz enough convincing for me!

I'm off to take a weee leeetle nap!
Maybe I'll feel more like getting something
accomplished after my..hippo...something or other
has been "cleaned" out.......or not.. =P


What about YOU?  Do you take naps?

Yes, I am a napper. I wish I could be one of those "power nappers" who sleep for 15-20 minutes and their "in box" is cleared out. Me? At least 60-90-120 minutes. Apparently my e-mail program needs an upgrade!

When I'm tired I can 'program' myself for a 20 minute nap, usually sitting upright in the computer chair as if I become too relaxed I start to slip out of it and it wakes me up. This is a hangover from when I used to drive home once a month, 20 odd years ago, and lived a 9 hour drive away - with the new highways the same drive is only 6 hours.

I never nap. That doesn't mean I don't get sleepy in the afternoon. I just don't won't to miss out on anything!

I sleep when my body finally says 'yes'!! I am an insomniac, so when I manage - 20 mins or 2 hrs(most)could be day or night.

Kate said...

Yes I nap. Unfortuantely it's usually during the 1:30 PM meeting right after lunch!

Sonia said...

Yes. I usually take naps on the weekend and I try to make sure my mind and conscience is clear before I lay down to sleep. :)

I do nap almost every day and I have done that my whole life! I LOVE naps. I actually sleep harder during my nap than I do at night.

I love naps, but don't always get to take one. My favorite time to sneak one in is between the time my granddaughter goes home and my hubby gets home!

I have never been a napper. Just can't seem to drop off during the day.

I am not a napper but do fall into nap zones with the cats! Nothing better than curling up with a purring cat to send you to the land of Nod!
