For most people, getting a quick shut eye is always a great idea. Especially if you’re facing a long day ahead, there’s nothing better than getting some additional zzz’s to power you through.

However, there are also some individuals that aren’t just meant to take naps. According to experts, some people are just not good in taking naps. How would you know if you’re not meant to take a siesta? Here are some examples of folks who should just try to stay awake the whole day and get more sleep at night instead:


While naps seem like the best solutions for insomniacs’ sleep deprivation problems, it’s actually the worst thing to do if you’re suffering from this condition. According to some experts, naps can actually affect an insomniac’s sleep continuity at night, especially if done late in the day. If you have problems falling asleep at night, it’s best to stay away from midday slumber, so you can work up your body’s need for sleep in the evening.

Bad nappers

If you have no discipline in taking a nap and can’t limit your midday snooze for just a few minutes, you shouldn’t nap. Napping for more than 10 to 20 minutes can leave you feeling groggy, disoriented, and sluggish, defeating the purpose of cat napping.

Those who work in strict environments

If you’re work requires you to stay awake at all times or you’re office isn’t exactly nap-friendly, maybe you should forgo napping entirely. You wouldn’t want to be scolded by your boss by getting some shuteye, so it might be best to avoid anything that can cause possible misunderstandings.

For some people, naps aren’t really their best bets. If you’re one of these people, getting a healthier sleeping habit is your best choice in staying alert and at your top shape during the day time. Some caffeine boost and a little bit of sweets can be your best friends instead of naps, but be careful, as these can also affect your sleep at night.
