    If you are sleeping enough during the week, you should not need to sleep extra on the weekends.

    Wrong!

    Good sleep hygiene means rarely needing to nap during the day!

    Taking a nap can through off your entire sleep schedule, causing you to go to bed later even when you need to wake up early. Next time you feel the urge to take a nap, try to push through and go to bed a bit earlier instead.
