Sleeping on the job is one thing, but getting paid to do it? – That sounds like a dream job!
A mattress company in the US is hiring a team of people to become ‘Nap Reviewers,’ who will be expected to take a nap every day for a month. The company, Eachnight, is offering to pay five people $1,500 (RM6,161) each. Not only do these “nap reviewers” need to sleep alone during their naps, but they’ve also got to have strong English writing skills for their reviews as well, the company said.
The mattress review and wellness platform wants to debunk the idea that napping is for children or burnt-out university students, and that it is actually healthy for working adults.
“We are sleep obsessed, and our main goal at Eachnight is to give you all the assets and information you need to get better sleep each night,” Eachnight wrote in a statement. Applicants must be 18 years or older to enter and must be able to sleep alone during the testing period to “ensure naps are undisturbed.” Participants from around the world are welcome to apply but applications close on 31 May 2021.
“There is an abundance of research that proves the benefits of a good sleep, but sometimes even a full 8 hours leaves you feeling groggy and performing at an average level at best,” said Eachnight employee Jasmin Lee. “With the added pressures of a worldwide pandemic and many people unable to fully wind down due to working from home, even a good night’s sleep seems out of reach.”
Nappers will be expected to take part in a variety of experiments testing out theories about nap duration and effects on levels of fatigue and memory. Participants will also be expected to take part in a video call before and after each experiment and will receive $1,500 (RM6,161) at the end of the trial.
Some tips for good napping include, but are not limited to setting an alarm, finding a quiet place to rest, avoid naps later in the day, and giving yourself time to wake up, the company said.
Eager to get paid for your snoozing skills? The application is on the company’s website. The deadline to enter is 31 May.
