I've been getting up with my 6:45 alarm for so long that I don't remember if I am a morning or an evening person. If I am left to my own devices, I prefer to sleep in until 9am or so.

Although there is no way I can do my own hair. But I can sleep on updos.

It might be an idea to learn to do your own hair. If you start traveling a lot then you can't get hair appointments. Just a thought. Tongue

I always do my own hair....as most comps are on a Sunday for us and the hairdresser is not open, I love the wya she cuts and colours my hair but she only does updos that are soft and fluffy and that is not good for comps... Roll Eyes
I kinda trained mine to use much more hairspray than she normally would. And I showed her different hair photos from previous competitions, so she can now reliably reproduce several styles which work with my hair. So for competitions within driving distance, I can do my hair at home and sleep on it.

The dancer's persona? Most I know sleeeeeep in... Smiley

But I'm right there with you on the "nanna nap" - what a great name for it. I usually call it my "disco nap". Smiley

in some mediteranean cultures it is, of course, the norm to have a siesta - dictated by avoiding the heat of the midday sunshine.  Its our northern european culture that has the obsession about the 8 hr work day - we are so used to the Puritan 'norm' that one almost feels guilty for taking a nap.  And yet, as you say, it really does make you much more productive if you have a chance to refresh during the day.

I quite often take 30 minutes or so in my office for just that.

Yep, grew up with that lovely post-main-meal-of-the-day nap whenever I visited fam in Greece. Delicious...even if you didn't actually sleep.

Said many times when I worked in corporate worls that they should have nap rooms...convinced it would increase productivity. And well-being. Smiley

for me, i have experience that drugged or hungover feeling when i wake up without completing a sleep cycle, which for me is around 2 hours. so... as long as i sleep 2, 4, 6, or 8 hours, i'm right as rain. Smiley

i go with my natural rhythms in general, so it works out. but the few times i've woken mid-cycle... *blurgh*.  Tongue for a few minutos, anyway. Smiley

Interesting.  Mine must be 4 hours, because I found long ago that if I can't get a full night's sleep, it's better to sleep only 4 hours.  I can function the next day on four hours' sleep, but if it's between 5 and 7 hours, I'm useless.
