Several New Mexico high schools have brought in fleets of nap pods to help their students catch a little more shut-eye throughout the day.

The pods first arrived at the schools in 2008 as a response to a National Institute of Health study, which reports that only a third of high school-aged teens are getting eight hours of sleep each night, even though teens need between nine and 10 hours.

The school reports the pods, by MetroNaps, have produced positive results with their students.

We could have definitely used something like this when we were in school!
