First there were sleeping pods in airports. Now, some schools in New Mexico are testing sleeping pods, and according to NBC News.
The National Institutes of Health recommend 9-10 hours of sleep per night for teens, but due to only around 33% getting 8 hours, some schools in Las Cruces are giving students the opportunity to take a 20-minute sleeping pod nap between classes.
The sleeping pods are financed through state mental health grants and a 20 minute nap returns them to class, refreshed.
Hmm? If a student has the time, why not? Why sit around doing nothing in study hall if you’re assignments are up to date. Twenty-minute naps are proven to refresh your mind. For many years, my brother took one during his lunch hour, and he said it was extremely beneficial to him.
How do you feel about sleeping pods in schools or on the job?
