I'm surprised none of you here know how to take a proper power nap. If you do it right you should feel fine afterwards.

Obviously it's not going to replace regular sleep, but if you need that extra boost it's perfect.

I take power naps almost daily.

They do work, but only if the nap is long enough. A 30 minute power nap is just 30 minutes of you trying to fall asleep until you have to wake up, and you feel no better. For me the nap needs to be at least a couple of hours long to have a noticeably rejuvenating effect.

If I do only have 30 mins, I change my tactics by meditating instead. Which can sometimes be just as refreshing.

I will take power naps occasionally, but only 15 minutes. Of course it helps that I can fall asleep in less than 2 minutes, something I learned in the Military.

I wake up alert and ready to go, highly recommended!

If I nap with intent, it's for two hours, minimum. If I just fall asleep mid-day, it's usually about an hour.

I feel better after the 2 hour nap.

The closest I've ever come to a nap was when I'd stayed up all night at a sleepover and then took 1 hour/2 hour sleep/nap-thing. When I woke up I felt like I was dying, my eyes and brain hurt and I felt so much worse.

But then again I'm physically incapable of sleeping anywhere that isn't a bed.

I'm sorry but you're going to have to be more specific. Are you suggesting that by having naps and essentially sleeping more and during the day you will have more hours of wakefulness?

Spain is not a good example of a healthy nation.

naps only work if you had a decent amount of sleep the night prior. if you try to nap without any sleep anything under a few hours will make you feel worse.

If you're going to sleep longer than 30 minutes, aim to wake up at 1 1/2 hour intervals, such as 1 1/2 hours, 3 hours, etc. If you wake up in between you'll feel like garbage.
