In our modern day and age, sleeping is becoming less and less important. It seems like the less sleep you get, the better you will do in life ( obviously not true ). With sleep deprivation comes many undesired side effects like constant tiredness, stress, high blood pressure and others. Well, there’s one gym in the UK that is trying to change all that by offering napping classes.
Yup, you can now pay for a 15 minute stretching routine and then 45 minutes of napping in an ideal room with just the right temperature with complete strangers and you won’t be lying when you say afterwards you were at the gym. How’s that for a plan?
The organizers of this new ” Nap-Ercise ” say the class will reinvigorate your mind, improve your mood and even burn that extra calories, which is just crazy enough to work.
Now before you go all bananas and say we’re talking out of our asses, there’s actual science behind this claim. There were a few studies done at Allegheny College in Pennsylvania that say that people who had a 45 minute nap break in the middle of the day handled stress much better than people who didn’t sleep. And even another study from UC Berkeley has stated that an afternoon nap could increase your brain’s learning capacity. How about that. It was crazy enough to work.
At the moment this new napping class is at testing stage over at David Lloyd Clubs in Sidcup UK. But if they find it to be successful, they will expend it to a membership cost in other clubs across the UK.
