    I generally have an innate ability to fall asleep at any time I want. On a rare occasion I can't, I cover up, daydream about sleeping in a shelter with a fire by my feet and my first two camping dogs up against me during an ice storm and I'm asleep within minutes. I play that same scenario in my head every time I have a problem sleeping and it works like a charm.

    When I was younger and drank a lot, I often had a hard time getting to sleep and even when I did, it was often the wrong type of sleep. I rarely drink these days and when I do, it takes about 1/10th of what it used to to drunken me up. But even a few beers affects my sleep negatively these days.

    I am lucky in that I haven't needed an alarm in about a decade either. I just know what time I have to get up and I almost always wake up within 5 minutes of that time. It's weird, but I tend to think most of us may have that biological ability if trained to access it.

    This sounds counterintuitive, but I nap a lot less, now that I am retired. The job must have been more physically taxing than I assumed.

    about 15 years ago, I was working a carpentry gig, one of the most satisfying jobs I ever had and seriously physical. I used to nap at lunch time after eating. we'd knock off around 3-4 o'clock and I'd go home. If I stayed awake to supper it was a miracle. A lot of nights I was asleep before 9. Even after that job was up I still enjoyed an afternoon nap.

    with this covid crap I got back in Nov, I've been napping 3 plus times a day, and still sleeping a solid 7 plus hours a night. I do wake up and get up to pee but I've been getting back to sleep more often than not. My energy level is seriously down as I recuperate from this ****.

    Definitely a nap club member.

    I feel too wired most of the time to nap, pisses me off. I need to work at it more.
