Drat. I tried the link below to the author's book on napping, and the link is dead, so now it's just a search page of sleep related stuff. Too bad.

I will leave this here. Referencing Chinese medicine... Sometime late in the Small Intestine time, close to when Urinary Bladder's energy peaks, is often when people's energy wanes - the notorious 3 pm or 1500 slump. Perhaps napping in time to stave this off is a good strategy. A là siesta!

FYI, the descriptions on the page I linked below are very decent. Most Asian horary clocks, as they are known, that are found online are very off kilter vs traditional placement.

This might be of interest. She did her PhD research on napping and she wrote a book. If you google her site, it has a wheel to determine the best time to nap.

I would love to nap every day if it was plausible...but work and everything else doesn't allow for that.

Yep, that's what I understand too. Short naps or rest periods are really good for us. I tend to take short naps on Tuesdays and Thursday's when I work from home.

I have read several studies that suggest that a short daily nap actually reenergizes the person which is why south American countries have a siesta. However, long naps can disrupt evening sleep patterns.
