On February 11, Online Bed Quilt, a leading mattress delivery company, comments on an article posted by The Washington Post detailing a studio in Vienna selling power naps to locals.
According to the article published by The Washington Post, a studio in Vienna, Austria called Reflexia started marketing sleep as a product. The studio sells power naps at $15 per half hour. It’s owner, Peter Schurin said he wants to change the public’s point of view about sleep. “People know sleep as a need, but not as a product,” he said in the article. “Our task is to change that in some ways."
The article said Vienna is one of the calmest cities in the world. Commonly reffered to as “Island of the Blessed,” Vienna is notorious for closing most stores on Sundays and ending work early on Fridays at around 3 p.m. Mercer surveys also continuously rate Vienna as one of the most livable cities in the world because it’s so laid back, the article said.
However, the article said a study from last year found that Austria’s economy loses about $9.5 billion each year in treatment and work absences due to stress-related illnesses. Reflexia is trying to remedy that, the article said.
The studio has a wide range of services that differ in length and price, the article said. The article said people who want to refresh themselves are able to purchase a private room for an hour where they can lay in dim light on leather loungers. Others can just grab a book and relax with some food.
Justin Maas, a representative from mattress delivery company Online Bed Quilt, said it’s important to have a place where people can come to relax and de-stress. “It’s true what people say,” he said. “Stress is a killer and it’s capable of disturbing sleep and causing insomnia. When that happens, your mind is unable to recover from the day and your body isn’t able to regenerate cells necessary to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Lack of sleep causes a depletion of work performance as well. I think this studio is a great idea for the people of Vienna.”
