Something similar has already been on the plate of the USA-based space agency NASA who have offered $19,000 (Rs 14 lakh) for people to lie in bed for 2 months as part of its space study.

While sleeping two months straight may end up causing bedsores, those who manage to finish the Wakefit internship successfully will be given a sleep tracker to record sleep patterns before and after using the internship mattress.

Here’s the job description for Wakefit Sleep Internship:

Your role: Just sleep

Dress code: Pyjamas – the funkier, the better

Skills needed: An unmatched zeal to sleep with an innate ability to fall asleep at the blink of an opportunity. Master this fine art and break your personal sleep records.

Stipend: Rs 1 lakh, provided you do the job “right”

Additional perks: A cool sleep tracker to know your sleep patterns before and after the internship, and of course, a healthier lifestyle with full hours of required sleep.

“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 Ramalingegowda, Director and Co-founder, Wakefit.co, was quoted as saying by bestmediainfo.com.

“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.

The internship was announced after a recent survey titled ‘Right to Work Naps’ by Wakefit, which revealed that nearly 70 per cent of over 1,500 respondents claimed they did not have a ‘nap room’ at work. Further, nearly 86 per cent of that lot also said that such a nap room will help increase their productivity.
