I have to work Sundays from 11 to 3 am but wake up at 9:30 am. If I nap 2 hours before work, then sleep from 3:30 to 9:30 is that fine? It's only once a week. But I don't get how sleep or the circadian rhythm works. I mean I have the same work... (more)

Naps are great and they allow you to get by on less sleep. We were meant to sleep in the middle of the day, all you have to do is look at youtube and see what savanna animals do between 1 and 4pm.

Now this has been going on for a while now. When I fall asleep at night, I have trouble waking up. I usually sleep for 8 hours no matter what. If I fall asleep at night, and it is now 5 hours later and time to wake up, people will bang on my... (more)

I know this isn't much of an answer, but probably something to talk to a doctor about. If you're having trouble waking up, there can be blood sugar issues that you don't want to mess with.

One of the Paleo books that I read suggested that mid-day sleepiness is due to eating a high glycemic diet and that by going Paleo I shouldn't have that problem anymore (which I don't). I also don't recall seeing any recommendations to consider... (more)

The lens of living more naturally in diet is: "If you are hungry, eat more." So why wouldn't you apply the same logic to sleep, sex, etc... Ergo, "If you are sleepy, take a nap." It's about listening to your body and doing what's natural.... (more)

What do y'all think about naps? Lately my night-time sleep has been lousy, and i'm waking up too early. I don't have the urge to nap (and I'd sorta rather not), but i do have a sense that i'm not sleeping enough. Though i've been thinking about... (more)

It doesn't matter how much sleep you get.. I think naps are very important! Even 20 minutes of napping in the early afternoon (between 12:00pm-3:00pm) can be greatly beneficial to alertness, mood, and energy. I don't recommend napping more than 90... (more)

I don't have kids yet but I am a nanny and I have been wondering about napping. The 14 month old takes a two hour nap every afternoon. I realize that newborns sleep constantly but after about a year are naps necessary? Anyone know what the toddler... (more)

Yes, the nap is necessary. The 14 mo old should be napping midday for about 2h and sleeping 12 hours at night. (generally speaking). Midday naps are probably very biologically appropriate (even for adults)
