However, according to Business Insider, a neuroscience and psychology professor at the University of California at Berkeley named Matthew Walker, warns that naps can cause harm if taken for too long or too late in the day.

Posted by Lisa Floyd on Mar 24, 2015 10:12:47 AM

You would wake up with the sun as it lit your way during the day and turn in at night once it was dark. But with the advent of electricity, humans were able to artificially extend their waking hours. This isn't necessarily a bad thing but it does have the potential to become bad depending on how often you use electronics.
