When I first read this article I almost did a double take when I realised it was talking about Spain not Japan. All jokes aside it does give an interesting insight into the way the Spanish economy is showing green shoots of growth and the work force is working hard to make the most of an economy that is anticipated to end 2017 with a total GDP greater than that of 2007. Research has also shown that 92% of Spaniards want to take siestas but cannot as they live too far from home so this business idea may prove to be a win win for Madridlenos and their global corporate employers as studies have shown that small periods of day time sleep of less than 20 minutes can contribute to increased concentration and performance. Maybe the rest of Europe has something to learn from them.
, Maria Estrella Jorro de Inza has found a way to bring back the siesta, making money while her countrymen nap. Bankers, lawyers and consultants catch up on their sleep at Siesta and Go — Madrid’s first nap-bar located in Azca, in the heart of the city’s financial district that’s home to firms like HSBC, Google and Deloitte.
