You can't talk about napping at work without talking about Arianna Huffington. The Huffington Post founder, who now runs Thrive Global, is so passionate about fighting the sleep deprivation crisis that she wrote the best-seller, "The Sleep Revolution."
Naturally, Thrive's SoHo office in New York features a napping and meditation room decked out in bedding provided by Coco-Mat. And if you think that HuffPo has ditched napping after Arianna's departure, think again. As of 2017, the New York headquarters still features full-on nap rooms, which are constantly occupied and considered crucial to company productivity.
Huffington laid her philosophy out pretty plainly to Architectural Digest: "Studies have shown that naps boost our immune system, lower our blood pressure, increase our ability to learn, improve our memory and performance of complex tasks. What workplace wouldn't want a free way to do all that?"
