Needing To Nap

Needing To Nap

Does anyone else get a severe need to nap around 2pm?
4 out of 7 days a week, i feel extremely exhausted to the point of getting a headache or nauseous around 2-2:30pm...regardless of how long i slept that night.
I do have insomnia and have to take meds to go to sleep every night

I have happen either at 3 or 4pm for me when I feel the need to sleep. And sometimes depending on the day can happen at 2:30pm. It sucks except for days off I can just nap. I take hydroxyzine for sleep but I also smoke extra vape to get me to sleep 😴

Yep! My 2pm slump! I find it's less severe if I eat protein for breakfast oddly enough.

It is funny that you brought this up. My disturbed sleeping pattern occurs at the same time every month and the next day I have truly no choice but to lay down with a show in and sleep for about an hour. I then feel refreshed. At times I have even fallen asleep after my morning routine ...getting ready for the day...making my son breakfast and basic tasks around the house. Once he is in his way out the door implant to take a little rest and another hour or so nap. I've tracked it in my cell phone and always the same days middle of the month. I forgive myself as it's not laziness it is self care. Your body will let you know what you need...believe me, lol. Extra caffeine or using energy supplements is ineffective. I say enjoy the nap and it's part of this lovely experience. I would bet you have beautiful skin though 🥰 Good rest is conducive to optimal wellness..and that shows in your skin, your eyes, your smile, your energy. Stay well ❤️

I have trouble sleeping due to my depression. I find even harder to fall asleep when I'm on my period as I feel as though I'm going to leak or worse
