8 Problems of Being a Chronic Napper

Being able to sleep anywhere at any time is truly a gift. It makes traveling faster and you can always find a way to catch up on sleep. However, if you're a chronic napper, you may run into a few problems that come along with constantly needing to nap.

1. You experience the confusion of waking up from a particularly long nap.

Ever person who has ever napped ever has thought to themselves, "what year is it?" when they have woken up from a particularly long nap.

2. You've slept through important meetings before.

Nothing is worse than sleeping through an appointment that was at 2 in the afternoon.

3. Your phone has an alarm for every hour, on the hour, from all the random naps you've had to take.

You probably can't even remember the last time you had to create an alarm, they're all just there.

4. Too many people have pictures of you sleeping on their phones.

Ha-ha. Hilarious guys. I know I sleep with my mouth open. Now let's just delete it, ok?

5. You get too grumpy when you've only had 7 hours of sleep.

Sure, that's almost a full night's sleep, but you better take a two hour nap, just to make up for the difference.

6. You're ready to go back to sleep, even after you just woke up.

Naps on naps on naps.

7. You always reply to text messages late, and constantly use the excuse, "sorry I was asleep".

At this point, your friends are probably used to it.

8. You've even missed out on a hanging out with friends, strictly because you slept through it.

Probably one of the hardest struggles about being a chronic napper, but you probably like your bed more anyways.
