We were wrong! Oh so desperately wrong

NAPS. The culture of napping has grown rapidly over the past few years and it's becoming a threat to us all. I’ve tried to resist the urge. I’ve been running around my bed for hours trying to catch up on sleep. Nothing is working. As I type this my concentration is going and I’m losing focus on the words… I can’t remember the last time i had a good night sleep but tis skeems to be a good palace to get my head downw yuh77uyjyzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

The workplace is being overrun by these napping high-energy, imaginative, passionate employees nowadays. How can napping and energy be in the same sentence? Makes zero sense!


Last month an employee of Google, Mrs Constance Noring was caught napping midday to quote, ‘boost her work performance’. And the boss gave her a raise! Since then she has taken naps each day and says that it's her dream job.

Now, more people have been caught in compromising nap debates. Elon Musk was caught by journalists taking a nap, testing his new self-driving car. The car apparently short-circuited and went round in circles, however, employees said it would be dangerous to wake him up as he was Sleep Driving.


Oprah fell asleep live on air! Robert Pattinson was found napping upside down from the ceiling. Adele napped under a bridge. The Weeknd napped during the week. Dwayne Johnson was photographed napping on rocks. Britney Spears has been caught doing pre-performance naps, waking up saying “Oops!... I Did It Again” And that's not all! Ariane Grande was found sleeping in the air vents before a concert. No one could find her and all she left behind was a copy of her new single ‘Just look up’.


People have discovered the power of naps in a major way and the workforce will never be the same. Emma Watson now says she needs a nap to get her BEAUTY sleep before going on set. Justin Bieber also commented on the nap phenomenon saying never say never to naps.

Naps are unproductive and time-wasting. In fact, research has shown that.. ermmm never mind. Well, the countless pages of research done on napping improving cognitive performance in work environments are wrong. If naps can boost work productivity then this article is a big joke to show YOU the reader that the outdated, negative stigma around napping is nothing more than a farce. Oh, wait…


It is!

Hahaha! Did we get you?


All joking aside, we all want to be the most productive versions of ourselves throughout the day. And here at Rest Space we truly believe that napping is the secret to this. No one can deny the fact that napping has had some bad press in the past but this needs to change. Napping during the day has proven health benefits; lowers blood pressure, reduces stress, reduces fatigue, and promotes memory consolidation (the process where the brain turns information into long-term memories).
