afternoon nap

午睡

(wǔshuì)

A: We're in our senior year at high school now and our studies have us so stressed out. Why is it you look so energetic, while I'm completely exhausted?

我们现在升入高三, 学习那么紧张, 为啥你每天都那么精力充沛, 而我却无精打采呢?

(wǒmen xiànzài shēnɡrù ɡāosān, xuéxí nàme jǐnzhānɡ, wèishá nǐ měitiān dōu nàme jīnɡlì chōnɡpèi, ér wǒ què wújīnɡ dǎcǎi ne?)

B: I study until late every night too, but I'm accustomed to taking an afternoon nap. This way I can ensure I get some quality study time in the afternoon and make it so I'm not so tired.  

我每天也学习到很晚, 但我有午睡的习惯。这样既可以保障下午的学习质量, 也能让身体不那么疲惫。

(wǒ měitiān yě xuéxí dào hěnwǎn, dàn wǒ yǒu wǔshuì de xíɡuàn. zhèyànɡ jì kěyǐ bǎozhànɡ xiàwǔ de xuéxí zhìliànɡ, yě nénɡ rànɡ shēntǐ bù nàme píbèi.)

A: I should learn from you. I need to be healthy if I want to study well.

我要向你学习, 身体健康才能学的更好。

(wǒ yào xiànɡnǐ xuéxí, shēntǐ jiànkānɡ cáinénɡ xué de ɡènɡhǎo.)
