This Will Make You Wish You Lived in China

How many times have you said to yourself at work, "I could really use a quick nap to get me through the rest of the day?" Well, guess what? China has already beat us to that technology.

For China's sleep-deprived white-collar workers needing a place for a nap, a booming "sharing economy" offering a growing range of services has come up with a cheap, mobile-friendly solution: capsule hotels.

With an easy phone scan, customers can book a nap in a sleek white capsule - designed to look like a space pod - for just 10 yuan ($1.50) for half an hour during the mid-day rush. The rate drops to only 6 yuan at other times.

Each pod contains a blanket, and is equipped with USB and power plugs.

Seems like a no-brainer

Could this be a healthier alternative to the caffeine jolt after lunch? Makes sense to me to the fact that whenever I take a quick 10-15 minute nap, that gets me back to where I need to be.

Don't take my word on it, agrees with me.

"Need to recharge? Don't lean on caffeine -- a power nap will boost your memory, cognitive skills, creativity, and energy level," posted on "You can get incredible benefits from 15 to 20 minutes of napping. You reset the system and get a burst of alertness and increased motor performance. That's what most people really need to stave off sleepiness and get an energy boost."

China's rapidly expanding "sharing economy"

China has also exemplified success of bike-sharing companies such as Mobike and Ofo, has inspired a wave of "sharing" enterprises backed by a funding frenzy powered by so-called angel investors and venture capital firms.

China's "sharing economy" is expected to grow about 40 percent this year to 4.83 trillion yuan ($705 billion). By 2020, it could account for a tenth of gross domestic product.

Just another way we need to learn from the Chinese.
