Napping at work has proven to increase productivity.
For those that are at work for 8+ hours, a quick 20-minute nap is the key differentiator in a productive vs non-productive state of mind. Now we are biased but the absolute best way to nap at work is in a hammock!
Now all you have to do is convince your boss/bosses.
We get it… you’re busy enough as it is, you aren’t going to start a battle trying to convince your boss to let you hammock in the office. The last thing you want to do is create more work for yourself. Don’t worry we did all the work for you!
Introducing the “Office Hammock Template”(OHT)
(OHT) is a guaranteed way to convince your bosses/managers to bring a hammock into the office and even get them to pay for it!
How to use the Office Hammock Template:
- Make a copy of the Google Doc “The Office Hammock Template” and personalize the messaging to fit with your voice and boss chief’s language.
- Email it or better yet, print it and address it in an envelope to your boss/s, if you end up doing that we’ll give you $5.00 credit to pay for printing and postage.
Without further ado… we introduce “The Office Hammock Template!”
“Dear [Boss], I want to propose this idea that will make our entire office a more productive workplace. Everyone naps at work… There is proof on Twitter!
“My friend works [in a similar company/industry as yours] and he/she was telling me about how their office productivity and morale skyrocketed after their boss introduced hammocks in the workplace.
Now I know what you are thinking because I felt the same way – there is no way that hammocks will make our workers more productive. But there is scientific proof!”
A NASA study showed a nap of just 26 minutes can boost productivity by as much as 34% percent and increase alertness by 54%.”
If this astronaut sleeping in space didn’t convince you, Science Direct conducted a study in 2007 comparing 200 mg of caffeine and napping for 60 min and found that napping is just as effective as caffeine! ☕️
I mean the top companies all have a place to base, their employees are happier, more productive and their employee turnover is virtually non-existent.
