Here's some more about "coffee naps". This short, just under three minutes, video even explains the science.

Maybe for you, but not for all of us -- like me.

The downside for taking too long of a nap is insomnia when I should be sleeping (in addition to aforementioned grogginess after a too long nap).

I’m the type person who sets an alarm to get up in the morning and wakes up on his own just before the alarm goes off.

It’s easy enough set an alarm on your phone.

You can find a way to nap.
