Modern life’s exhausting pace can really set off your sleep patterns, which can then greatly affect your productivity at work. In fact, some companies have even given their staff the green light to grab 40 winks at work. So, what’s the harm in having a snooze?
Well, according to these coworking spaces, there’s nothing wrong with adding a nap to your to-do list:
Where: 213 Purchase St. New Bedford, MA 02740
Groundwork is a 6,000 square-foot space on the ground floor of a former textile school. It features a coworking space, meeting rooms, private offices, and a marketing lab.
There’s also a nap room, called the Doug Out room, where you can book a space for 20 minutes, lock the doors and snooze on a giant blue bean bag without worrying about any disruptions.
Or, if you just want to have a quick lie down and don’t mind passersby seeing you snooze, there’s also a hammock in the shared space.
The Sea Office
Where: Rua Norberto de Araujo, 19 2825 – 374 Costa de Caparica, Portugal
The Sea Office is a 1960s villa that combines a coworking space on the ground floor with four different rooms on the first floor with beds so you can lie your head down. There are three single rooms and one suite with a double bed for those serious snoozers.
