Our mums might be wrong for once because we can now be actually paid to ‘sleep’. In an attempt to focus on the importance of sleep, an Indian startup by the name of Wakefit is calling out to all the sleep-lovers for their ‘’ “sleep internship 2020 batch” with a paid stipend of Rs1 lakh to sleep for 90 days.
For the task, candidates will have to sleep for 9 hours, 7 days a week for 100 days after which you can get a reward of Rs.1 lakh. For the skills required, the post must have a “fanatical passion” and “an innate ability” to fall asleep in their pjs.
The company will monitor the sleeping patterns of the candidates who are selected. They will also be given counselling sessions and sleep trackers. It will help the company to monitor the sleep experiences of the candidates before and after using their mattresses.
“This initiative is another step towards making sleep an integral part of maintaining work-life balance in our lives,” Chaitanya Ramalingegowda, Director and Co-founder, Wakefit.co, was quoted as saying by bestmediainfo.com.
"As a sleep solutions company, our biggest motivation is to inspire people to sleep better. As we continue to live life in the fast lane, sleep is unfortunately becoming a common casualty, adversely affecting our health, productivity and quality of life," Chaitanya was quoted as saying.
"We are looking to recruit the best sleepers in the country who are willing to go to any lengths to make sleep a priority in their lives," he added.
