Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been taking afternoon naps. Now that I’m an adult, I’ve continued to take cat naps for about 1 to 2 hours after I get home from work.
Although none of my friends who know about my habit have come right out and said “That’s weird!” I suspect they think so, and my girlfriend occasionally teases me about it. So my question is, is adult napping considered “weird”? If it’s good enough for babies and pets, why not me? Does anyone else do this? Is there any evidence that adults “naturally” should stay awake for 16 or 17 hours and then sleep?
