Nowadays everyone knows the importance of exercise on our health and productivity levels; including companies who have harnessed that knowledge and provided gyms or at least gym subsidies for their employees.
But could sleeping become the new working out? In the US ‘Nap Rooms’ are becoming the latest phenomenon in businesses as big as Google, Nike and The Huffington Post.
Companies are right to look at their workers’ sleep patterns according to Dr Irshaad Ebrahim, from the London Sleep Centre. Sleep is ‘as crucial as our diet, our mental well-being and our physical health’. Lack of sleep affects levels of concentration, our learning and problem solving capabilities and can make us prone to swings in temper and depression.
But is it up to an employer to make sure its employees are well rested or should individuals be taking the responsibility for their own sleep?
