Power nap - IT enabled...

We implemented “PowerNap during lunch hours” few years back at Octaware for its obvious benefits. Slowly but surely, the benefits of the classic, 20-minute power nap are getting more recognition in other IT firms also. All of us believe that PowerNap increases alertness, boosts creativity, reduces stress, improves perception, stamina, and accuracy, helps you make better decisions, keeps you looking younger, aids in weight loss, reduces the risk of heart attack, elevates your mood, and strengthens memory.

Now the PowerNap is IT enabled. The companies are installing “Sleep Pods” at the office and more software applications like “Pzizz” are ensuring to set the right power nap. The sleep pod is a specially designed chaise lounge with a privacy bubble and built-in full body buzzer-as-alarm clock. It also has a wake-station with mints, refreshing spray, hand towels and a locker.

Pzizz is neat little piece of software that will help you relax and reduce stress. It does this by providing you over a billion custom naps on your computer that you can trigger when you need a refresher. Pzizz combines Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), enchanting music, sound effects and a binaural beat to achieve a wonderfully relaxed state in the listener, similar to that experienced during the Rapid Eye Movement (REM) stage of sleep.

You can download a free trial to give it a shot and share your experience here at Octaware blog :-)
