12 Feelings Only People Who Love Taking Naps Would Know

12 Feelings Only People Who Love Taking Naps Would Know

Do you love naps? Some people love to nap every day, and for others it is an occasional treat. Naps give you energy and make you feel more productive – and it feels great to be in bed during the afternoon.

Check out 12 feelings only people who love naps would know.

1. You are jealous of babies and pets

Whenever you spend time with pets and babies you feel insanely jealous of their relaxed lifestyle. Wake up, eat some food, take a nap…. To you, it sounds like the perfect day.

2. You kind of like the disoriented feeling when you wake up

You actually kind of like the feeling of waking up from a nap and feeling disorientated with no idea what time it is. Most people dislike it, but to you it is just proof that you caught up on some much needed z’s.

3. You plan naps for later in the day

You love naps so much that you often plan a nap for later in the day while you’re still eating breakfast. The only thing that actually motivates you to get up and go to work is the fact that you have a nap planned for as soon as you get home.

4. You set alarms when you nap because you love to snooze

If you didn’t set an alarm when you napped you would probably sleep right through until the next morning. However, one alarm isn’t enough; sleepy you will switch it off and go right back to sleep, so instead you set about 5 alarms to guarantee you will wake up.

5. Whenever you go to a furniture shop you want to take a nap

Every time you go to a furniture or home décor shop the first thing you want to look at is the beds. You’re not even planning on buying one – you’re just fantasizing about taking a nap in one.

6. You always read articles about the benefits of napping

You always click on any article about the benefits of napping, no matter how ridiculous the article is. You just want solid proof that your beloved naps are good for you.

7. So you know ALL of the benefits of napping

You already know that napping can increase productivity – in fact, you pretty much know EVERYTHING there is to know about napping.

8. Sometimes you accidently nap through the night

On more than one occasion you have settled down for a quick nap, slept through and woken up the next morning. You always feel weirdly guilty about this, but it never deters you from napping again.

9. You like long car rides because you can nap

Most of your family hates road trips, but you always look forward to them. Not for the car games or the jokes – for you, it is all about the opportunity to have a peaceful nap under a warm blanket.

10. You convince yourself to take naps

You love naps so much that sometimes you actually convince yourself that a nap is absolutely essential. You tell yourself that you will be more productive and energised after your nap – and then you wake up feeling groggy, unable to do anything other than binge-watch Netflix.

11. You don’t understand 10 minute naps

You find people that can nap for ten minutes strange and bizarre. How do they manage to wake up so quickly? Does it even count as a nap if it is shorter than half an hour?

12. If you stay at a hotel the first thing you search for is the “Do Not Disturb” sign

The first thing you do when you’re staying at a hotel is find the “Do Not Disturb” sign. You’ve been woken up before by an apologetic maid, and it was super awkward. Now you always make sure you find the sign so you can have a peaceful, uninterrupted nap.

5 Fixes For Common Sleep Issues All Couples Deal With

5 Fixes For Common Sleep Issues All Couples Deal With

Sleeping next to your partner can be a satisfying experience and is typically seen as the mark of a stable, healthy home life. However, many more people struggle to share a bed with their partner than typically let on. Sleeping beside someone can decrease your sleep quality which negatively affects your life. Maybe you are light sleepers and you wake each other up throughout the night. Maybe one has a loud snoring habit that’s keeping the other awake. Maybe one is always crawling into bed in the early hours of the morning while the other likes to go to bed at 10 p.m.

You don’t have to feel ashamed of finding it difficult to sleep with your partner and you also don’t have to give up entirely on it. Common problems can be addressed with simple solutions such as an additional pillow. Here are five fixes for common sleep issues that couples deal with.

1. Use a bigger mattress to sleep through movement

It can be difficult to sleep through your partner’s tossing and turning all night, particularly if they have to get in and out of bed. Waking up multiple times in one night can leave you frustrated and exhausted. The solution may be a switch to a bigger mattress or a mattress that minimizes movement.

Look for a mattress that allows enough space so that your partner can move around without impacting you or consider a mattress made for two sleepers like the Sleep Number bed.[1] This bed allows each person to choose their own firmness level. It also minimizes any disturbances their partner might feel. A foam mattress like the kind featured in advertisements where someone jumps on a bed with an unspilled glass of wine will help minimize the impact of your partner’s movements.[2]

2. Communicate about scheduling conflicts

If one of you is a night owl and the other an early riser, bedtime can become a source of conflict. It’s hard for a light sleeper to be jostled by their partner coming to bed four hours after them. Talk to your partner about negotiating some compromises. If you’re finding it difficult to agree on a bedtime, negotiate with your partner. Don’t come to bed before or after a certain time, giving the early bird a chance to fully fall asleep before the other comes in. Consider giving the night owl an eye mask to allow them to stay in bed while their partner gets up to start the day.

3. Don’t bring your technology to bed

If one partner likes bringing devices to bed and the other partner doesn’t, there’s very little compromise to be found. Science is pretty unanimous on the fact that screens can cause harm to a healthy sleeper. Both partners should agree on a time to keep technology out of the bedroom or turn screens off. This will prevent both partners from having their sleep interrupted and can help you power down after a long day.

4. White noise and changing positions can silence snoring

A snoring partner can be one of the most difficult things to sleep through. Snoring tends to be position-specific so many doctors recommend switching positions to stop the snoring. Rather than sleeping on your back doctors recommend turning onto your side. Changing positions can cut down on noise and breathing difficulties for any snorer. Using a white noise fan, or sound machine can also help soften the impact of loud snoring and keep both partners undisturbed.

5. Use two blankets if one’s a blanket hog

If you’ve got a blanket hog in your bed don’t fight it, get another blanket. This solution fixes any issues between two partners and their comforter. There’s no rule that you have to sleep under the same blanket. Separate covers can also cut down on tossing and turning making it a multi-useful adaptation.

Rather than giving up entirely on sharing a bed with your partner, try one of these techniques to improve your sleeping habits. Sleeping in separate beds can be a normal part of a healthy home life, but compromise can go a long way toward creating harmony in a shared bed.
