Like most people, I don't give a lot of thought to sleep unless I'm not getting enough. Like lately. It's not insomnia, I just have a lot on my plate so I'm up far too late and awake far too early with a lot of go go go between.
I know I'm sleep deprived when my very first thought when the alarm goes off is, 'today I'm going to have a nap'. The thought jumps into my head immediately and I want to laugh at the ridiculous nature of the idea because I NEVER nap. Not ever. Well, extremely rarely. I didn't nap when I had newborn babies in the house and everyone said oh you must nap when they do or you'll be exhausted. When I had 4 kids under age 6 and they were all napping I couldn't nap either. Napping just isn't part of who I am. The odd time when I happen to doze off for some weird reason (usually because I'm extremely sick), I've woken up feeling disconcerted, headachy, and just worse off.
I have friends who nap. They can nap for five minutes and be raring to go. I confess to nap envy. Do you ever nap?
