Is it good for a period of 1-2 hours? Explain.
I voted for 'depends on when'. For instance, when you are driving an expensive car.
okay. Let's use common sense.
Are you suggesting that I should not take a nap when driving an expensive car?
I think js's answer is relevant to the question. If you actually have a biology question try that forum. This is General Discussion, also known as GD
Yes. That's what they invented TV's for, isn't it?
Two things knock me out almost immediately: TV's and riding an airplane (on an airplane, the oxygen level is knocked down a little making it real easy to fall asleep).
Apparently, the oxygen level is low in your TV room, too :tongue2: .
I love naps! At work, I'm lucky to have an actual four-walled office with a door - not a cubicle. So after I eat lunch I close the door, put my feet up and snooze for about 10 minutes. Perfect!
Oh, I thought it was Gagging Diversion.
Anyway about naps, there is some controversy I believe. Google for catnaps, power-naps and caffeine naps.
I voted that it depends on when. If you have an hour left of work to get done, and take an hour long nap, then still have to get the hour's worth of work done, plus can't fall asleep afterward because you're all "refreshed" from the nap, it's not worth it. If you have 6 hours of work left, and an hour long nap will refresh you enough to get it done in 6 hours instead of 10 or 12, then yeah, a nap is a good thing.
I love naps, but only rest for 20 to 30 minutes. Any longer then that I wake up feeling hazey.
I said "depends on when" because 1 - 2 hours is a lot of time to just sleep away. There's a lot more you could be doing. So what I do is take naps during class.
A 2 hour nap in class is a lot of time, too. You could fall asleep in the middle of American History and wake up with a whole different set of people in the classroom - speaking French, no less!
That's even more productive. You classes must be really entertaining.
No, naps are useless. They make it harder for you to sleep at night.
I hate naps, they confuse me.
No, if the nap is to do any good it has to be at least 3 hours long. Thats why military pilots on long range flights are allowed to take 'power naps' 3-4 hours in length. Less than that, and you lose coordination and dont wake up 'refreshed' if your pulling long hours.
I try to avoid taking naps, they mess with my sleep cycle.
Not useless. It improves your party stamina
That's the kind of answer I was looking for. The main disadvantage of naps seem to be disturbing sleep.
When I say refer to taking a nap, I always mean at an appropriate time when other committments are not affected. So the only trade off in that case would be not being able to sleep as well in the night. Hence Moonbear, your answer wasn't quiet on ball.
