As for taking a shower, they just make you tired (at least in my case) because they're warm and comfortable. Climbing into a warm, comfy bed seems to work just as well; or are you taking the naps elsewhere? On a couch, sitting upright in a chair etc?
Thank you for welcoming Scott :]
I have planned the gap between nap and core sleep as it is. I definitely want to get up at 5:30, that's optimal for me. And 5 hours gap seems optimal for me too, because I can either study or go out with friends (I am university student). So I want to leave it as it is (at least for the first few days/weeks) if somebody is not going to tell me it's 'not so good'.
The warm and comfortable bed idea is nice, I am going to warm up my blanket before my nap today :]
