Yup, I hate taking naps because of that reason. SOMETIMES I will feel better - if I truly only do a quick 15-20 minute nap. But usually that never happens and I fall asleep for like an hour or more, and then end up being worse off lol

I always feel bad after naps. No head aches, just wicked moody and lazy. BUT it does prevent me from falling asleep in class so I do it anyways.

I heard that feeling bad after a nap means you're taking one that is too long and your body goes into deep sleep so responds badly to being woken from deep sleep. I think they said naps should be like 20 minutes. Not sure if there is ANY truth to that though.

Thank you ~Dixie's Mom~ for my awesome siggy!

When I'm so tired I'm literally falling asleep while I sit (and read), I feel so much better after a nap. But it has to be at least an hour, if not two. And then when I wake up it has to be on my own time and I have to have about a twenty minute "waking up" period. Then I'm good to go.
Short power naps just kill me.

I love naps. Don't get them often with the kids to take care of, but they work for me when they happen.

All the time. And yet I still take naps because I only sleep 3-5 hours a night. I can't seem to get out of the cycle either

I generally really love naps, but every once in awhile I wake up from one just totally cranky.

I am a 'dozer' sleeper, throughout the night I'll wake up twice, read or watch TV for a while then fall back to sleep... Rinse repeat, I've always been a problematic insomniac. If I watch tv & doze in front for a few min that is more energizing then If I actually went to bed for some reason.
