Is it bad to take naps as an adult everyday?

In brief: Not necesarily

Napping at the wrong time of day or for too long may not be beneficial.
Otherwise naps provide improved moods, alertness, performance, relaxation and reduced fatigue. Watch out for nighttime sleep problems and issues with grogginess after awakening from the nap (sleep inertia).
