Taking a Nap

Sleeping in the middle of a day feels strange to me. As I wake up, I feel like being in another day, and cannot recollect the emotions and thoughts before the nap. Sometimes this is a good thing, as I seem to get more out of the day, compared to living though it as a whole.

For me naps have some drawbacks though. Sometimes I wake up having a headache, and oftentimes the nap will interfere with normal sleep in the night, since it is not very easy for me to fall asleep even without the nap.

Dreaming is also problematic, not that I do not like seeing them, but as I have mentioned in a previous post, it eats into my consciousness in real life, and I need extra time to adjust. Also dream diaries are harder to keep when I have to clear my mind during the middle of the day.
