And for sleepyheads out there, we’ve got the perfect profession for you. A Chinese firm is offering applicants 100,000 yuan (about 730k in Philippine Peso) a year to be a professional "sleeper."
The career, dubbed "the world's most comfortable job" by netizens, was posted first in the Beijing Morning Post. The Chinese paper said the company offering it is well-known health supplement firm, Nao Baijin.
Those selected for the job simply has to test the company's products through sleeping, and then write research reports on how taking the supplements affects their slumber quality.
