Mitigating the effects of migraines through Rest Spaces


Introduction

A fast-paced work environment is a perfect catalyst for stress, anxiety and depression for employees. For many people, these factors can lead to migraines. A 30 minute nap can be beneficial in reducing the likelihood and the severity of migraines for individuals who experience them.


Addressing the Problem

Migraines are more than a headache; anybody who has experienced one can testify. In terms of uncomfort, migraines may entail nausea, sensitivity to light and sound, dizziness and in some cases fevers. They affect 12% of the population and occur on average four times per month. In relation to the workspace, migraines have been shown to reduce productivity and inhibit concentration for workers.


All About Migraines

Migraines can be caused by a wide range of triggers. Many include loud noises, bright lights, and flickering screens. It is important to recognize triggers for individuals who endure migraines in order to best avoid them, although sometimes things are out of their control. When this does happen, it is recommended for people to lay down in dark and quiet areas. In addition, people can take painkillers and anti-sickness medications.


Where We Tie In

Theoretically, a midday nap to mitigate migraines in their entirety is difficult. Many people need to leave their workspace and go home to a quiet, dark rest space which takes time and often cuts the workday short. Rest Space LDN has nap pods available for employees struggling with migraines to nap in an optimal environment. Our quiet, dark, readily available nap space offers a space for people in the workspace to combat previous migraine struggles and improve employee wellbeing.


Mission and Next Steps

Here at Rest Space, we are on a mission to create a place for workers to recharge in the workspace throughout the day. People are what grow and operate many businesses today, and it is important to provide them with resources to operate as effectively as possible.
