5 Professions Where You Get Paid To Sleep by Thepasserby(m): 7:02am On Apr 20, 2017
Came across this on palmchat and I thought of sharing.

1. Bed and Mattress Tester

If you hate getting out of bed, there’s no need to with these jobs. There are positions out there that pay people to test anything from mattresses to duvets. For the most part, individuals test products and then blog about their experience or help companies make decisions based on the products they test.

Another classic example of this was a position filled back in 2006. Travelodge’s Director of Sleep, Wayne Munnelly, was paid to nap within the company’s 25,000 beds. Not a bad gig if you ask me. There are also positions offered for luxury bed testers. Like Roisin Madigan, who earned £1000 to sleep in designer beds every day for a month.

There’s also Ms. Unsworth from London, who is paid to test duvets. She said, ’My friends and family think I’ve got the best job in the world - and they’re probably right.’ Her degree in textile management allowed her to land this opportunity which she describes as her dream job.

This goes to show you that random, yet fitting positions can be created based on what you offer. Like any company, bedding and mattress companies are always looking for unique ways to increase sales and strengthen their market presence. If you think you have something to offer this industry, reach out to see if you could be one of these lucky people.

2. Medical Consultants Working for the NHS

Pediatricians and Neonatologists who work 12-and-a-half-hour shifts are paid £1,800 by the NHS and are allowed to sleep through their shift. This night shift pays triple, weighing in at a hefty £144 an hour (which is around $245 in the US).

During these shifts, consultants are on-call, meaning they’re allowed to sleep through their shift as long as there are no emergencies. Considering it would take an NHS nurse more than a month to earn what these consultants make in one night, there have been some concerns.

3. Scientific Research Subject

NASA may not be the place to start a career in professional sleeping, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be involved in research studies. Hospitals and Universities are constantly looking for participants to take part in various study opportunities, including those on sleep. These studies typically focus on measuring brain waves, respiration, heart rhythm, and muscle movement.

Participants can be healthy individuals or those who suffer from sleep disorders, it depends on what the study entails. You’ll just need to be comfortable with people watching you sleep, as they track changes based on your body and brain. According to one study conducted at the University of Colorado, a 14 to 17-day sleep study paid out as much as $2730.

The Division of Sleep Medicine at Harvard Medical School is looking for subjects to take part in their 32- or 37-day sleep research study. Subjects will take part in this study at the Brigham & Women’s Hospital. Each study has different requirements, but you can make up to $10,125 if selected. There are multiple other studies that are being offered to potential applicants.

4. Exhibitionist Sleeper

Although this sounds a little controversial, it was most certainly real in 2009. The New Museum in New York was looking for women between the ages of 18-40 who were willing to be part of a Chu Yun exhibit. This job required them to take sleeping pills and sleep in the middle of the museum between the hours of 12 pm and 6 pm. Although it only paid $10 an hour, that’s a lot more money than you’d get to nap at home.

5. Working for Companies That Offer Nap-Time

Big companies, such as Google, Facebook, Huffington Post, and National Wide Planning, all encourage their employees to take a mid-day snooze. They’ve even invested in energy pods which are chairs designed for power naps, costing anywhere from $8,900 to $12,900. These fancy pods offer a unique design, allowing employees to recline and block out sights and sounds from the environment around them. Some of the other bells and whistles include built-in speakers that play calming music and ’timed waking’ which allows individuals to pre-programme napping time.

These companies have recognized the power of a twenty-minute nap. Experts say that’s all it takes to be able to get back to work, but recommend nap time between the hours of 1 pm and 4 pm. Any later and individuals could interfere with their critical night’s rest.

Employees admit that when they have a quick rest, they’re able to approach the afternoon with greater force, increasing overall productivity. Although these positions involve a lot more than napping, sleep is seen as a positive part of the day and is highly encouraged.

Some government jobs in Nigeria pay you to come late, and sleep

Some even give you the opportunity to prepare your dinner while at work. You can be peeling Egusi or grinding your pepper before close hours.

Thanks for sharing.

Each society creates jobs that match its values.

Just imagine offering some graduates here such a job; prepare to be washed in spittle.

"You're offering me Bed and Mattress job? After all my years in the university? I resemble olosho? My mates wey dey work for NNPC, dem get 2 heads? E no go better for you!"

Yet the same fellow -upon seeing a celebrity's newest car -will gladly post his phone number on Nairaland:

"Oluwa, see my phone number na. Even if na flash, flash me. Abeg!"

When more of us realize that there is nothing wrong in honest labour, more of such opportunities will be created here.

And we'll have fewer celebrity wannabes
