At the Dreamery, an outfit opened by the mattress company Casper in Manhattan, naps are for sale.

To be more precise, a 45-minute session in a darkened nook with peace and quiet is for sale for $25.

Everything you might need to prepare for your nap is available: various lotions and balms, free toothbrushes, pajamas. “You miss a hundred percent of the naps you don’t take,” reads a little message on the mirror of the changing room. From there, a steward guides you into a quiet space filled with the hutches. You lie down inside, behind heavy curtains. When you’re ready, you turn off the light. Forty-five minutes later the light goes on again.
Is a nap worth $25? Yes. A third of Americans adults aren’t getting the sleep they need for optimal health and well-being. Research from the University of Michigan found that a group who napped for 60 minutes had significantly higher tolerance for frustration and more focus than people who didn’t.
