Hello, I have a weird question.

My schedule is such right now that I have the luxury of taking a nap in the early afternoon. I often take advantage of nap time! However, if I just let myself sleep in the afternoon and wake up naturally I end up sleeping for 2-3 hours! I routinely get 7 hours of sleep at night. I also tend to wake up with a headache if I let myself do this.

I used to think that if I slept 3 hours in the afternoon then obviously I needed the catch-up, but now I'm not so sure. I can sleep on command at any time, so I don't really trust my body.

Thoughts? What are your experiences with napping?
