Who wouldn’t want to get paid to nap? Although it might sound like a job you can only achieve in your literal dreams, one company is making it a reality by paying people to take a siesta every day.
Yes, you read that correctly. Eachnight, a company that provides reviews for bedding, mattresses, and general sleep health tips, is looking for “nap reviewers” to join their team. They plan on hiring five people to help observe the pros and cons of a midday snooze — and are offering $1,500 for those valuable insights.
Applicants must be able to commit to 30 days of napping every single day, plus do so alone in order to make sure the naps aren’t disturbed. The selected reviewers will also need strong writing skills to record the information about each of their sleep sessions in detail.
“Over the course of 30 days, our dedicated nappers will be required to take part in a variety of experiments testing out theories such as the best nap duration for feeling refreshed, the effects of napping on overall levels of fatigue, and the effects of napping on memory, motivation and productivity,” the website explains. “The individuals will be required to take part in a video call before and after each experiment, to ensure they understand their tasks fully, and to complete a verbal questionnaire detailing their experiences and results. In return for their participation, each ‘Nap Reviewer’ will receive a payment of $1,500 at the end of the testing period.”
If that all sounds like something you can get behind, you have until May 31 to fill out an application and hopefully be picked as one of the company’s “professional nappers.”
Aside from the cash, you might notice perks like lowered blood pressure and improved brain health — two health study-backed advantages already associated with daily naps. Or you might uncover a few new benefits that will convince us all to get forty winks more often! Either way, it’s certainly not a bad way to make an extra buck.
