    If I feel the need, I will take a 20 minute nap. The trick is figuring out how much time leads to feeling energized, and how much will make you feel lethargic. You should wake up in the light sleep phase to get the best benefit. 20 minutes avoids getting to deep sleep, while 90 minutes will complete approximately 1 cycle.

    Last weekend I knew I was going to have a late night, so I actually took a 90 minute nap at 4 p.m.

    Nothing constructive to add. Just want to add that napping is one of my favourite hobbies.

    it depends; if it messes with your night sleep (as it does with mine), then i'll forgo a nap to have better night sleep (even though at times i really really REALLY want a nap!)

    Naps are generally good, but they can cause problems if you have insomnia or depression. Otherwise, nap away!

    I seem to be incapable of taking a nap that is less than 3 hours, so I don't do it very often. But yay naps!

    The power nap functionality on my UP24 software might be its best feature.
