Nap York sleep studio promotes rest and meditation during the day. Here's why experts say you should swap out caffeine for extra sleep.
Rest is the new coffee break.
At Nap York, a new 24-hour tranquil oasis in Midtown Manhattan two blocks away from Penn Station, people pay $10 to sleep in nap pods for a half hour to relax and relieve stress.
“We wanted to create a place where these busy and exhausted individuals could come and take that break and spend some time focusing on themselves,” Stacy Veloric, the marketing director at Nap York, tells Moneyish.
The dimly-lit dream sanctuary features napping pods complete with a single mattress and adjustable LED lights on the ceiling arranged to look like a starry night sky. Each pod comes with live plants to purify the air, soundproof curtains, essential oil diffusers, noise-canceling headphones and reading lights. The beds are made with a pillow and blanket (There’s also a bed bug cover, because, New York.) Sheets are changed after every use. Licensed security guards watch over the premises at all times, and there’s always a housekeeper on call to sanitize the sleep pods, which are made of vegan leather.
