The purpose behind this company's job opening is to "test a few theories behind the pros and cons of napping to provide our community with some valuable insight"
It's time to sleep on the job, quite literally, and get paid for it! Eachnight, according to its website, "provides a full-circle approach to sleep and wellness that incorporates mental, physical, and environmental well-being." The company is now seeking five participants also known as "nap reviewers" to share their insight on their experience. With regards to the aim behind this initiative, the website stated: "So, we wanted to test a few theories behind the pros and cons of napping to provide our community with some valuable insight. We know that in general different length naps have different benefits, but we are keen to put this to the test, and we need your help!"
Once selected, the nap reviewers will undergo a number of experiments to test out various sleep theories. These include things like 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." Even research has proven naps have many of the aforementioned benefits besides others like boosting immunity. “Sleep deprivation increases the release of pro-inflammatory markers and causes immunodeficiency. Counteracting this with napping during the day for a period of several days improves the immune system and cellular function,” said Natasha Fuksina, MD, an internal medicine doctor. Participants will have to be part of a video call before and after each nap experiment to ensure they have understood their tasks properly.
They will then have to answer a verbal questionnaire detailing their experiences and results. Nap reviewers have to be in an ideal setting for the best results. "Applicants must be able to sleep alone during the testing period to ensure that the naps are undisturbed," the website added. Those interested will have to enter a form given on the website. Applicants from anywhere in the world are welcome to apply. They also have to be 18 and above in age, and have no prior commitments for the 30 days of the experiment. Besides this, they should have strong English writing skills so they can accurately carry out the reviews of their naps and follow any relevant instructions. Applications close on May 31, so make sure you're not in a "you snooze, you lose" situation.
The website details tips to ensure people nap the right way for the job. People should find a quiet and dark place with few distractions and the right room temperature. Nappers should also make sure they don't sleep too late which would just disturb your entire sleep cycle for days. More importantly, make sure you keep an alarm so that your nap does not turn into a full-fledged sleep. People were obviously excited about the opportunity.
