There are many people who think that sleeping at job is a sign of laziness. Well, it is time to accept a new notion. Many leading organizations encourage mid-day naps for their employees.

A number of working Americans say that their daily activities are affected by insufficient sleep. The reasons for insufficient sleep are wide and varied. But the end result is that they impact the work that we do. And it is no secret that in order to do your best, you need a good night’s rest.

Understanding the importance of this, many leading companies have invested in Nap Pods. A nap pod is basically a chair-helmet combination that allows you to take a quick snooze during your work.

Here is why Engagedly thinks nap pods at the workplace are a good idea.

An Easy Way to De-stress

Nap pods lull you to sleep by creating soothing sounds and put you in a perfect position for a nap. This is a very easy way for stress relief at the workplaces. It doesn’t let you sleep for hours, instead, it is a quick and easy way to relax completely.

Improved Performance

When you are stress free, you can focus more on what you are doing. A fresh and stress-free mind tends to come up with better and creative solutions. This results in increased productivity in the organization.

Employees Work For Longer Hours

When employees are given perks at workplace, they usually tend to stay back and work for longer hours happily. Employees tend to work effectively and happily for longer hours in an organization which allows its them to take a power nap in the very soothing and relaxing nap pod.

Sleep Makes Everyone Happy 🙂

Studies show that the people who get right amounts of sleep are happier than those who don’t. So, sleep indeed makes everyone happy, doesn’t it?
