Most of us come up with our best ideas when we are about to nod off, says a study. So is it time the boss put beds in the workplace? :thumbup:

With longer working hours and shrinking lunch breaks, is it any surprise that stressed British workers find their bed a more creative space than the office?

Some 30% of people have their best ideas in bed compared to just 11% who have them at their desk, according to research by the East of England Development Agency (EEDA).

It is calling for companies to install beds in the workplace, in an attempt to change the way we work for the better. :tired:

Simon,
Funny that you should mention it. Thats exactly what I have, right now. And, when we are financially sound even to build a new facility, it will have showers too.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

I can personally confirm the above, sometimes when I'm drifting off to sleep I come up with an idea and actually start working it through. If I don't get up there and then and scribble something down, by morning the idea is totally gone. Another good creative time for me is in the shower first thing in a morning.

I'm at my worst from about 9 - 5. :tired:

I use sleep to work everything out for the day,

My alarm goes off 30 minutes before I need to get up, in this 30minutes semi consciousness I sort out my day & get all sorts of ideas.

A bit weird but it works for me!!
